Who can claim accident at work compensation?
Anyone that has been the victim of a workplace accident in the last three years that was through no fault of their own can be eligible to claim for compensation. You can take our 30-second eligibility test online to see whether you can claim compensation, or you can call one of our friendly advisers on our helpline. Our advice comes with no obligation to go ahead, which means that you do not have to proceed with a claim after speaking to us.
Every claim is different, which is why we do not like to guarantee anything to anybody. However, your specialist solicitor will agree a settlement figure with you based upon previous cases with similar circumstances.
Because no two claims are the same, the time they can take varies too and depends on different circumstances. At Accident Advice Helpline, we pride ourselves in offering quick and efficient service. The faster you get in contact with us, the faster we can deal with your claim.
When you call Accident Advice Helpline, we will guide you through the process, step by step. As long as you have your personal details to hand and as many details about the accident as possible, then we will be able to help you.

As long as you keep your receipts for the expenses you incurred due to your accident or injury then we should be able to claim for these too.
In a lot of cases, our solicitors can attend court for you, which means that you will not need to go to court to claim compensation.
