Thanet industrial accident


Making a compensation claim for a Thanet industrial accident can be a stressful experience. Your employer’s insurer may be unwilling to pay out for your claim and may use anything you say or do as evidence against you. To avoid destroying your chances of making a successful claim, you will need to protect your claim from start to finish. Follow these dos and don’ts to maximise your claim’s potential.

Dos and don’ts following a Thanet industrial accident

  1. Do: Confide in your doctor
    If you seek medical treatment after your Thanet industrial accident, remember to tell your doctor about all your symptoms, even if they do not seem relevant. If you have been receiving treatment for a preexisting condition such as back pain, let your doctor know. Your employer’s insurer will request access to your medical records and if you deny knowledge of any preexisting medical conditions, it could have an impact on the outcome of your case.
  2. Do: Get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline
    At Accident Advice Helpline, we have an outstanding track record and enviable reputation in all areas of personal injury law. We employ some of the most experienced personal injury solicitors in the UK and we can help you pursue a claim against your employer on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
  3. Don’t: Ignore your solicitor’s advice
    When you hand your claim over to us, we will assign an accident at work specialist to your case. When the time comes to settle your claim, your solicitor will advise you on whether your employer’s offer of compensation is reasonable. While it may be tempting to reject the first offer you receive, it is important to remember that your employer’s initial offer may be better than the level of compensation you could receive following a full court hearing.
  4. Don’t: Forget the time limit for your Thanet industrial accident claim
    There is a three-year time limit on all Thanet industrial accident claims and unless you settle your claim with your employer, or issue your claim in court, within three years of the date of your accident, you will lose your right to receive compensation.
