General information about claims
The thought of making a claim can seem daunting for some people, but the process is designed to be as stress-free as possible for the claimant. In all cases, it is our solicitors who take on the grunt work and build a strong case on your behalf. The only input you will generally have is providing the initial accident information and attending a medical examination, which is compulsory in most cases to prove the extent of your injuries. After this, it’s simply a case of sitting back and letting the claims process take its course.
If you are making a claim against your employer, then you can return to work during the claims process, even if it sounds daunting. Your employment is protected by law and so you cannot legally be dismissed or punished for making a claim against your employer.
If you are making a claim for a historic accident, bear in mind that in most cases a 3 year limit from the date of limitation applies. This can be extended in the case of some industrial accident claims and if you have been treated under the Mental Health Act 1983.
To get started with your claim or to simply chat with our friendly advisors please call our 24/7 Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.
