If you have been involved in an accident at work in Powys, you may feel overwhelmed by the situation and all you need to do, including: notifying your employer, determining your entitlement to sick pay and contacting a personal injury lawyer. However, the most important thing to do is get the treatment you need to speed up your recovery.
Receiving medical treatment for your Powys accident at work
Assuming you are registered with a GP’s surgery, it is best to you have your GP direct your medical treatment. When your GP is in charge of your care, he or she can make recommendations on the types of treatments that may help you and, if necessary, arrange for you to see a specialist.
If you are struggling to access the treatment you need on the NHS, and you do not have private health care insurance, the team here at Accident Advice Helpline may be able to advise you. If you have not yet seen a doctor about your injuries, or do not have access to continued care, please call our freephone helpline and discuss your accident with our trained claims advisors. We will be able to assess your case and determine your eligibility to Powys accident at work compensation.
Securing interim payments of compensation
If it is clear that your employer was at fault for your Powys accident at work, we may be able to apply for interim payments of compensation on your behalf. This money will allow you to pay for private medical treatment and, if required, rehabilitation support.
The amount of interim compensation you will receive will depend on the circumstances of your case. However, it will not be more than a reasonable proportion of the overall amount of compensation that you are likely to receive upon the resolution of your claim.
Following your doctor’s orders
Once you have sought initial medical help, it is extremely important to follow your doctor’s orders and attend all of your follow-up appointments. If you fail to follow medical advice, or miss appointments without good reason, your employer’s insurance company may accuse you of deliberately exacerbating your injuries and this may make it difficult for our lawyers to secure you the compensation you deserve.
The bottom line when it comes to receiving full and fair compensation for your Powys accident at work is to get in touch with us for free, no-obligation advice and, if you have a strong case, 100% no win no fee* representation.
