West Midlands Accident at Work Claim


One of the best ways of launching a West Midlands accident at work claim for compensation, is by using the ‘no win, no fee*’ personal injury claim service that we provide here at Accident Advice Helpline. This service comes highly recommended by the former TV personality and people’s consumer champion Esther Rantzen.

Who is to blame for the accident that caused your injury?

It doesn’t matter what type of injury you’ve sustained, just as long as it is serious enough to warrant the raising of a claim; but the one thing that is important over everything else, is that the blame for the accident that caused the injury must be attributable to a third party. If it was your own negligence, clumsiness of carelessness that brought the accident about, that could compromise any claim you consider making.

The 3 year statute of limitations

You also need to be aware of the 3 year statute of limitations. This means that the accident must have occurred within the 3 years immediately preceding the date of your claim. Any longer and you’ll probably lose you right to claim. There are however some exceptions.

The 3-year statute and minors

In terms of personal injury law, a minor is anyone under the age of 18. If it is a minor who has been injured and who will be the subject of a compensation claim, the 3 year window, doesn’t actually start until the persons 18th birthday. That’s not to say that you’ve got to wait until the 18th birthday before you or they raise the claim; it can be raised anytime, and it is recommended that it is launched at the earliest opportunity.

Extending the statute of limitations for a West Midlands accident at work claim

An occupation related illness or disease is, to all intents and purposes, an accident in the workplace. It is the “accidental” exposure that makes this so. But some disease (like asbestos related diseases) may not materialize for several years. If this is the case, you’ll need the expertise of a good specialist injury claim solicitor like AAH to act on your behalf to get the 3 year statute invalidated or extended.
