    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Solicitors in Winwick

    Whether you work in an office, a factory, or a shop, you have a right to remain safe in your working environment. It is the responsibility of your employer to ensure that you remain fully protected during your working hours, and if your employer falls short in his or her responsibility then you may be entitled to compensation.

    Actions to take in the immediate aftermath of an accident at work

    If you are involved in an accident at work, you should:

    • Report the accident to your employer;
    • Take down the contact details of any witnesses;
    • Take photographs of the accident scene; and
    • Seek immediate medical assistance.

    In doing so, you will help strengthen any subsequent claim for compensation you make.

    Time limits for workplace accident claims

    If you wish to make a claim, you should contact us as soon as possible. To be eligible to receive compensation, our accident solicitors must settle your claim, or issue it in court, within three years of the date on which your accident occurred.

    Receiving compensation for your workplace injury

    Once we take on your claim, our team of experienced solicitors may send you for a medical examination and use the resulting report to try to convince your employer to settle your claim outside of court. If your employer completely refuses to admit liability for your accident, our solicitors will have no other choice but to issue your case in court.

    If you win your compensation claim, it may take up to six weeks for your employer’s insurance company to pay out for your compensation settlement. If you are struggling financially, it may be possible for our solicitors to secure you an interim payment, which will help you to meet the cost of your most urgent requirements.
