According to the law, if you sustain an injury at work through no fault of your own, you are entitled to claim compensation for the pain, suffering and financial losses you experience.
To win compensation, you will need to prove three things:
1. Your employer should have taken steps to prevent the accident
2. The accident happened as a result of their failure to protect you from harm
3. Your injury and subsequent financial losses occurred as a result of the accident
If you did not contribute to your Torfaen office accident, you may assume that you have a straightforward case for compensation. However, when you start the process of filing a claim, you may encounter several complications that could make it difficult for you to win compensation.
How can a personal injury solicitor help?
A personal injury solicitor will be familiar with the various nuances of personal injury law. They will know exactly how to build a strong case for compensation whilst staying on the right side of the law. They will also have handled countless Torfaen office accident cases before, so they will be familiar with the tactics they can use to persuade your employer to settle your claim.
What will a personal injury solicitor charge?
If you feel hesitant about hiring a personal injury solicitor because you cannot afford the cost, you should know that the personal injury solicitors here at Accident Advice Helpline operate on a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ basis. We will evaluate your Torfaen office accident claim thoroughly to determine your chances of winning and, if we feel you have a strong claim, we will offer you to represent you without asking you to pay for your legal fees upfront.
What is the time limit for filing a Torfaen office accident claim?
The standard time limit within which you must file your Torfaen office accident claim is three years. The three-year deadline commences either on the date on which your accident occurred or on the date on which a doctor confirmed that your injury was linked to your accident. If you do not instruct a solicitor to start legal proceedings within the three-year window of opportunity, you will lose your right to receive compensation.
