    Wakefield accident at work


    The term “personal injury” in regards to a Wakefield accident at work claim refers to an injury to your body or mind. It can be a short-term physical injury such as a sprained wrist, a lifelong illness such as asbestosis or a psychological injury such as post-traumatic stress disorder.

    If the negligence of your employer has caused you to suffer a personal injury, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. However, you will only receive the compensation to which you are entitled if you instruct a personal injury lawyer to issue your claim in court within three years of the date of your Wakefield accident at work. The only exceptions to this three-year rule are:

    1. If you were under the age of 18 at the time of your accident;
    2. If your accident caused an illness that takes a long time to appear, such as mesothelioma or silicosis;
    3. If you have applied for, and been granted, permission to bring your claim outside of the limitation period.

    How much money will I get?

    The amount of money you will get for your Wakefield accident at work claim will depend on the severity of your injury. Severe injuries, such as spinal damage, will usually attract larger compensation settlements than minor injuries.
