There are so many things that go through someone’s mind after an accident. These thoughts include questions such as: Is help on its way? Will I have to go to hospital? Who will pick the children up from school? Have I been seriously injured? Will I be entitled to workplace accident compensation in Adur?
Having an accident at work
A person’s thoughts, when they’ve had an accident, arise from fear and lack of knowledge. It’s a scary experience to get into an accident, after all.
When something like this happens at work, there is often someone around to provide help. They can notify a first-aider who can provide practical assistance straight away. Someone else may call an ambulance, which means you can receive medical treatment quickly. Messages can be passed to relatives and friends, and childcare arrangements can be made.
Getting help with workplace accident compensation in Adur
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we cannot deal with the immediate aftermath of an accident, but we can certainly play an important role later on. If you want to claim workplace accident compensation in Adur, all you have to do is call our national helpline and speak to an advisor.
If you qualify to claim compensation, your advisor will pass your details to one of our team of in-house no-win, no-fee solicitors, who will deal with all the relevant agencies, such as insurance companies, on your behalf. He/she will handle the paperwork, and make sure that your claim is handled expertly.
Who is eligible to claim?
Basically, anyone who has been in an accident in their workplace, and suffered injury as a result, could be eligible to claim compensation. That’s because employers are legally obliged to provide their workers with a safe environment in which to carry out their jobs.
If you are eligible to claim, there is no guarantee of a successful settlement. However, as mentioned above, we work on a no-win, no-fee basis, which means that it’s worth going ahead with a claim if you are eligible and you decide that you wish to proceed. There’s no obligation to go ahead if you don’t want to claim.
How the money Accident Advice Helpline can secure for you can help
We would advise you to claim because a successful result means that you will receive a sum of money, and this money will be of great help to you.
People who have been injured at work often find that they have to stay off work for a period of time, and even if this period is relatively short, it can mean lost earnings.
This is bad enough, but then there may be extra expenses to think about. Some people need to hire home-helps or childminders. Other people find that they’re making much more use of their local taxi firm than usual. Of course, prescription costs can mount up, too.
A compensation award means that you can take care of these expenses, and some of the award will cover the suffering you’ve endured, too.
For more information, call 0800 689 0500 from any landline, or 0333 500 0993 from any mobile. Call us today and lets start work on that claim for you now.
