If you’ve been injured in an accident at work in Waverley, you may have a number of queries about where you stand when it comes to claiming compensation.
Five questions to ask your workplace injury solicitor
While there are a number of resources available online, many of these contain facts that can be misinforming and confusing, putting people off the idea of making a claim. At Accident Advice Helpline, we believe this information pertaining to workplace injuries should come from the experts, and we encourage you to ask our personal injury solicitors questions to better your understanding of the claims process, and your rights after an accident at work in Waverley. Here are the top questions we would advise you to ask any workplace injury solicitor before making a claim:
Have you handled workplace injury claims before?
“Personal injury” is a broad term, so it is wise to see if your solicitor has had any experience dealing with cases involving accidents in the workplace specifically. This experience can prove invaluable when handling your case, and can help build your confidence in your lawyer.
What is your track record?
Another thing to query is their success rate. If your workplace injury lawyer has handled many of these cases, ask about how many of them were successfully settled, and the amount paid out in each instance.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a proven track record that has resulted in the successful settlement of numerous cases over the past fourteen years.
We currently help award over £30 million a year in damages, so you can have confidence in our solicitor’s ability to successfully deal with your case.
How much could I receive in compensation for an accident at work in Waverley?
While claims calculators and other tools are a great way to get a rough idea of what you could be owed, the best way to work out how much you could receive for an accident at work in Waverley is to discuss the specifics of your case with your lawyer. Depending on the nature and extent of your injuries, you could stand to receive anything from a few hundred to a few thousand pounds with our help.
How much will this cost?
Make sure to understand what is payable and when for your lawyer’s services upfront.
At Accident Advice Helpline, our payment policy is clear, as we work on a no-win, no-fee basis.
