    Call us with your accident compensation claim questions

    Accidents at work can result from a range of hazards, including faulty equipment, unsuitable floor coverings and dangerous chemicals.

    Whatever the cause of your accident, you will need to ensure that your employer compensates you for the pain and distress you have suffered as a result of your injuries.

    If you believe your accident may have resulted from your employer’s failure to follow health and safety regulations, there is a chance that the personal injury team here at the Accident Advice Helpline will be able to sue for damages in Westmorland on your behalf.

    With our sympathetic and caring legal team on your side, you will be able to rest assured that you will receive the maximum possible compensation settlement for the injuries you have been unlucky enough to sustain.

    How long do I have to bring a claim against my employer?

    If you wish to sue for damages in Westmorland, you will need to file your claim within three years of the date on which your accident occurred. You should therefore contact us as soon as possible.

    Will I lose my job if I sue for damages in Westmorland?

    Your employer has a legal responsibility to protect your health and safety while you are at work.

    If you lose your job as a result of your personal injury claim, an employment solicitor will be able to assist you in pursuing damages for unfair dismissal.

    Will I have to attend a medical examination?

    In most circumstances, your accident lawyer will require you to consent to a medical examination with an independent specialist. The resulting report will form an essential part of your claim.

    How much compensation will I receive?

    If your claim is successful, you will be entitled to receive two types of damages: general damages, for the pain and suffering caused by your injury, and special damages, for the financial losses and expenses that have arisen from your injury.

    If you have sustained a serious injury, your accident lawyer will also ensure that you receive compensation for all your future losses. In most cases, your employer will pass your claim over to his or her insurance company, who will meet the cost of your settlement.

    How will I afford the cost of legal representation?

    If we believe you have a reasonable chance of winning your claim, we will work for you on a 100% no win, no fee basis.
