Have you been hurt on the job?
Every year, thousands of British workers are injured whilst at work, and many suffer the consequences alone without compensation. At Accident Advice Helpline, we are committed to not only ensuring every accident victim is aware of the legal rights pertaining to compensation, but that they also have affordable access to legal representation to act on these rights.
We have answered below some of the most common questions pertaining to compensation claims, in simple, easy-to-understand terms with no legal jargon. Living with injury may be difficult, but seeking compensation shouldn’t have to be. Read on to find out more about eligibility, deadlines, and how much you could receive.
Who can make a Reigate and Banstead accident at work claim?
Under UK law, you are eligible to make a claim for compensation following an accident for which you were not at fault. If you can demonstrate that the negligence of another party such as an employer has caused your injuries, you can hold them responsible by making a compensation claim, and ensure that they are made to pay.
How long do I have to make a claim?
There is a three-year time limit in place, meaning you have up to three years from the date your accident occurred to seek compensation for the injuries sustained in it.
What do I need to do to get started?
To get a Reigate and Banstead accident at work claim underway, you should be able to provide as much information as possible about the accident, and ideally as much evidence as possible to support that you were not at fault. This evidence can be comprised of witness statements, photographs, accident reports and anything else to support that negligence lead to the accident.
How much will I receive in compensation?
Accident Advice Helpline helps award over £30 million a year, and our solicitors take great pride in recovering the highest amount possible for our clients. Each individual case is different, but you can get a rough idea of what you could be owed by filling in our online claims calculator.

What costs are involved with making a Reigate and Banstead accident at work claim?
With our ‘no win, no fee’ policy, you do not have to pay anything initially to begin a claim.
