When bringing a personal injury claim against your employer, it can be extremely helpful to have an experienced lawyer handle your case. West Oxfordshire accident at work claims can be complex, and working with a lawyer from Accident Advice Helpline will ensure you are able to present a strong case to your employer’s insurance company.
Can I recover compensation without a West Oxfordshire accident at work lawyer?
Depending on the nature of your injuries, the length of your recovery period, and the cooperativeness of your employer, it may be possible for you to seek adequate compensation without the help of a lawyer. However, if your claim is complex, you will need to hire an experienced lawyer to maximise the compensation available to you. It is important to consult a lawyer if:
• Your injuries are severe
• You are unsure of the value of your claim
• Your employer is uncooperative
• You need to issue your claim in court
• You need to negotiate with your employer’s insurance company
• You need help proving that your employer was at fault
In some cases, your employer’s insurance company may refuse to pay you any compensation. You will want a personal injury lawyer in this instance because a lawyer may be able to achieve a settlement on your behalf.
How soon should I contact a West Oxfordshire accident at work lawyer?
If you have suffered from a West Oxfordshire accident at work, you should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. All claims are subjects to time limits, and if you wait too long to file your claim, you may never be able to receive compensation for your injuries. You should therefore talk to a personal injury lawyer to ensure that you understand the time limits that apply to your individual situation. If you have a strong claim, your lawyer will help you file a claim and will represent you on a 100% no win, no fee basis.
