A minor or moderate injury sustained as a result of a Stoke-on-Trent accident at work can considerably disrupt your life. Your recovery should be your main priority yet factors beyond your control, such as a lack of income and long delays on the NHS, may make it difficult for you to return to full health.
What to do after a Stoke-on-Trent accident at work
If you have been injured at work due to the negligence of your employer, then you should not think twice about exercising your right to receive compensation. We understand that pursuing a claim against your employer may seem like a daunting process, but when you instruct Accident Advice Helpline to handle your claim, we will guide you through the claims process and allay any concerns you may have.
How we work
To receive our help, simply give us a call on our 24/7 Freephone helpline and we will take the time to fully understand your circumstances so that we can use our skill and expertise to provide you with the compensation you deserve. We will answer any questions you may have and, if you are happy for us to do so, we will start work on your claim without delay. Our solicitors will pursue your Stoke-on-Trent accident at work claim under a Conditional Fee Agreement (often called a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ agreement), which means that we will share the risk with you.
If you instruct us to proceed on your behalf, we will carry out a thorough investigation into your Stoke-on-Trent accident at work before writing to your employer to inform them about your claim. We will then grant your employer three months to look into your accident and confirm whether or not they accept liability. If you have mounting household bills, we will seek an early interim payment of compensation to help you to avoid financial hardship while you await your full compensation settlement. We will also aim to provide you with funding for any private medical treatment and rehabilitation you require.
If your employer accepts your claim, we will ensure that you receive full and fair compensation for the accident you have suffered. If they reject your claim, or refuse to provide you with an acceptable settlement, we will instruct a court judge to rule on your case and issue their judgement. Call Accident Advice Helpline free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone for free, no obligation advice about making a claim.
