Employers can take every precaution available to prevent accidents happening on the factory floor or in the office, but they still happen. It’s a fact. Figures for 2010/11 from the Health & Safety Executive show that there were 114,000 injuries to workers reported by employers in the UK.

The Accident Advice Helpline is a free call number, open day and night, 7 days a week. One of our expert advisers will take you through a 30-second check-list to determine if you qualify for a claim and can approximate on how much that could be. With over 10 years experience in claims management, you’ll have the satisfaction and confidence that we can help with work injuries compensation.
Our legal network extends to 200 solicitors all over the UK, so there’s bound to be someone near you who can support you 100 percent in your personal claim process. In many cases, the Accident Advice Helpline can even handle your claim entirely on the phone – surely of great benefit to those whose injuries have left them with mobility problems.
Legal action against employer
We appreciate that the prospect of taking legal action against your employer might seem daunting, even waste of time, especially if you’re going to be hit with legal costs. Our independent injury lawyers have a no win, no fee policy, so you can be sure that they want to get the best outcome for you. By using the Accident Advice helpline for work injuries compensation, we can match you with an individually selected injury lawyer – in effect, a legal specialist in work injuries compensation claims.
Knock-on effects of accidents
The knock-on effects of being injured at work may not be restricted to the pain and discomfort caused by the accident itself. You will most likely have to cover the cost for medical care, prescriptions, and possibly alternative travel arrangements to and from work. In some extreme cases you may not be able to work at all for a period of time, or may not be able to return to your former occupation – which means you could lose your income completely and even your independence. At the Accident Advice Helpline we work towards softening the financial difficulties you might face by winning work injuries compensation claims, so that all you have to concentrate on is getting well again.
