FAQs about making a claim for a workplace injury with Accident Advice Helpline
Employers are legally bound to keep their employees safe at work.
There is much government legislation in place outlining how this can be achieved, and yet still there are over 78,000 workplace injuries reported each year. If you’ve been hurt and work and believe your employer to be at fault, read on to learn more about your rights to claim compensation, and more about how Accident Advice Helpline can help.
What sort of injuries can I claim for?
While many workplace injuries take place in industrial work settings such as construction sites, the truth is that injuries can happen any time, any place. You can make a claim for any injury provided someone else caused it, be it a chemical burn or a broken ankle, a head injury, back pain and more.
How can I prove my employer was at fault?
In order to make a successful claim for your injury, you should be able to prove the negligence of your employer caused it. This can be done by providing things like copies of an official accident report, images, CCTV footage and witness/co-worker statements.
What if I’ve been injured many years ago?
You have up to three years after an accident to make a claim for any injuries that arose as a result of it.
Can I make a claim for a workplace illness?
Yes; if you’ve been diagnosed with an occupation illness such as cancer, asthma or repetitive strain injury, you can make a claim for compensation with help from our solicitors in Lickfold.
How much can I expect to receive for my workplace injury or illness?
Every case is different, but many of the people we’ve helped have received substantial payouts from the negligent party responsible. In fact, over £30 million is awarded to accident victims each year thanks to Accident Advice Helpline. To find out how much you could potentially receive, either fill in our thirty-second claims calculator for a quick quote, or call our offices to have a no-obligation consultation with a claims adviser.
How much does it cost to hire workplace injury solicitors in Lickfold?
We work on a no win, no fee basis, so that everyone can afford to make a compensation claim. If you’ve been hurt at work, you’ve likely had to take some time off to recover. This can mean losing out on income, which can make the idea of affording the help of lawyers seem impossible. With our conditional fee agreement, there’s nothing payable upfront, so you don’t have to let money stand in the way of receiving what you’re entitled to.
