    Work injury claim in Hoxton

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Hoxton

    If you live or work in Hoxton, you may be considering making a work injury claim in Hoxton after an accident for which you were not to blame. Usually you have three years from the date of your accident in which to file a work injury claim in Hoxton or elsewhere. Of course, you could also be thinking about filing an injury claim in Hoxton, for example, because you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness. In that case you also have three years from first being diagnosed in which to make an injury claim in Hoxton (or one based anywhere else in the UK).

    It can be quite daunting to make an injury claim in Hoxton or one elsewhere if you are not certain how to proceed. The first major step you have to take is that of finding an accident or personal injury solicitor who has the necessary experience to handle your potential claim.

    How to make a work injury claim in Hoxton

    1 You will need to book an initial appointment with an accident solicitor who specialises in dealing with accidents such as yours. You may need one who specialises in clinical negligence claims, or one who mainly deals with accidents at work, and so on. Each accident solicitor will have a particular area of expertise.

    2 When you have found an appropriate solicitor you will need to ask if the first appointment is free of charge. It generally is and the solicitor will be able to visit you in hospital or at home, if your injury prevents you from going to his or her office. In this interview you will be able to give all the details to the solicitor, and by the end of it, he or she should be able to tell you if you have grounds on which to make your claim.

    3 You will then need to provide your solicitor with the documentation required so that he or she can build a case. Usually this will be in the form of your medical records and perhaps a police report if they were at the scene of your accident. You will also be asked for the names and contact numbers of any witnesses. If you took photographs of the scene of the accident and your injuries, these may be used as supporting evidence.

    4 Your solicitor will inform the person responsible for your accident or illness that you are filing a claim and they will be given ninety days to respond. Depending on the response, you could settle the claim out of court, or take it to court, which could take years rather than months before you receive compensation.
