For over ten years , Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people from Watford and across the country claim compensation after an accident at work. If you’ve been injured after a Watford accident at work, it’s natural to seek some kind of compensation. Your employer has a responsibility to keep your working environment as safe as possible, and to minimise risks. An accident at work means that something has gone wrong, and if the accident wasn’t your fault you may be eligible for damages.
Could I get compensation after my Watford accident at work?
If your Watford accident at work was in the past three years, you could be entitled to compensation. Your employer should control any risks at work, and give you training in how to manage them. This can be anything from the technicalities of handling hazardous substances, to something simple, like the safest way to lift a heavy object. If you haven’t been properly trained, or if a risk hasn’t been properly identified, you may have a case for compensation.
For more information on whether you qualify for compensation, the easiest thing to do is call our friendly team of professional advisors. Lines are open 24 hours a day, and the number is Freephone. Alternatively, our online 30-second test can quickly tell you whether or not you have a claim.
How much compensation will I get?
The amount of compensation awarded is decided by the court. To keep things affordable, the lawyers at the Accident Advice Helpline always work on a no-win, no-fee* basis. This means you will only have to pay your lawyer if they win your case and ensures they are always motivated to get the best possible result for you. A local Watford solicitor may charge you upfront fees, or ask for a retainer, which can add extra financial stress
Will it be stressful or time-consuming?
It all starts with a simple phone call. Almost all claims can be processed over the phone, so you don’t need to come into an office or take time off work. We’ll ask you some questions, and any documents can be put in the post or sent in an email. We work hard to ensure that most people don’t need to attend court . Some cases take longer to settle than others, but we always try to get things sorted for you as quickly as possible, so you can get back to normal life.
