    Wakefield accident at work compensation

    Find out more about Wakefield accident at work compensation

    Are you worried because you are currently unable to work because you had an accident in your workplace? You may be able to claim Wakefield accident at work compensation if you can prove that your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence. That someone else is likely to be your employer, and you may feel a little uncomfortable about making a claim against him or her, or the company you work for. However, if negligence or carelessness can be proven, then you are entitled to claim personal injury compensation for your pain, distress and suffering.

    Making a claim for personal injury compensation

    You have probably never thought about claiming for injuries before, and you may not have a clue about how to go about claiming Wakefield accident at work compensation. The first thing to do is to contact us at Accident Advice Helpline. You can speak with one of our claims’ experts on the phone. He or she will be able to tell  you if you can, indeed, make a claim, and can explain the process to you.

    You may be asked to have a further medical examination so that your state of health can be detailed thoroughly. However, as most of the claims we handle can be dealt with over the phone, it is unlikely that you will have to go to court. We can advise you regarding any offer of settlement you receive, but will fight for you so that you have the best offer of compensation, whether or not that means going to court.

    Points you need to satisfy to claim

    In order to be eligible to claim personal injury compensation, you must prove, with the help of one of our legal experts, that you were not responsible for your accident and injuries. The accident must have been cause by someone else so that a claim can be made. Don’t worry about this, your employer must have insurance coverage, and it is his or her insurers that will pay you compensation.

    You also must have had medical treatment for your injuries as quickly as was possible after the accident. You can demonstrate that you did with your medical records and doctor’s report.
