Accident at work
If you have been unfortunate enough to have an accident at work, and have been injured as a result, then Accident Advice Helpline’s team of dedicated solicitors in Whitley may be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
Our solicitors in Whitley can help you make a claim against your employer and their insurance policy if they are to blame for your accident, and therefore your injury.
There are many different types of accidents that can occur at work that your employer may be directly responsible for, for example our solicitors in Whitley have helped with:
- Slips, trips, and falls at work
- Accidents caused as a result of insufficient training
- Accidents caused by machines, either machines not working properly or insufficient training in how to use them safely
- Lifting and manual handling accidents
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Industrial diseases
- Construction and scaffolding accidents on site
- Injury caused as a result of the actions of another colleague
No matter what the situation our solicitors in Whitley will be able to help you make a claim for compensation if you have not been at fault for the incident in question.
Find out how our solicitors in Whitley can help you
To find out if our solicitors in Whitley can help you make a claim for compensation you can take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test today. By answering a couple of very simple short answer questions about your accident and the injuries you have sustained as a result we can tell you immediately whether or not you meet the criteria for making a claim. If you do then you will have a legal right to make a claim against your employer, and our solicitors in Whitley will be able to work with you to help you get the financial compensation and justice that you deserve.
Our solicitors in Whitley will be able to work with you to ascertain what steps your employer should have taken to ensure that you were safe. If they have failed in their duty of care, perhaps by not offering you or other co-workers suitable training to ensure you could do your job safely, then they will be regarded as being liable for your accident. It is this liability which means that you will be able to claim compensation from them and their insurance provider.
How much compensation?
Our 30 second test can also tell you how much compensation you might be entitled to if your case is a success. The amounts quoted are designed to give you a good indication of what you could be expected to receive; however, figures will vary depending on other factors that your solicitors in Whitley will need to take into account. This will include things like whether you were slightly responsible for the accident yourself, and whether you have incurred any loss of earnings or out of pocket expenses as a result of the accident.
