Work related accidents injure thousands every year; not only that, but over 100 people died in the workplace in 2011/12, and more than 1 million are currently living with a work-related injury or disease.
Why choose Accident Advice Helpline?
Accident Advice Helpline is one of the largest law firms in the UK, and specialises in personal injury claims and we have more than 14 years experience in this field.

Making workplace injury claims in Wolverhampton – the process
Accident Advice Helpline makes pursuing workplace injury claims in Wolverhampton, or anywhere in the UK, both simple and straightforward. Most claims can be processed over the telephone, and it’s unlikely you’ll need to attend court. In most cases, the most we’ll ask of you is to attend one medical assessment, to help us get a better understanding of your injury, but that will be done at a convenient time for you.
It’s worth noting that all claims must be made within three years, although this time limit has some degree of flexibility in cases involving either minors or incidents of industrial disease. The length of time that elapses between filing your claim and receiving any compensation that may be due varies from one case to another and cannot be guaranteed. Compensation payouts also can’t be guaranteed but you can rest assured that your solicitor will work their best to get you the figure you deserve.
Knowing if you qualify for compensation
Work-related injury is not the only focus of personal injury claims; compensation can be won for all manner of accidents. Common claims handled by AAH include:
- Road traffic accidents
- Food poisoning
- Accidents on package holidays abroad
- Accidents as a cyclist
- Slips, trips and falls
If you’re still a tad unsure, simply visit the Accident Advice Helpline website and take our 30-second test, which will give you a better idea of your entitlement to compensation in just a few clicks.
Your claim amount will usually be made up of a payment for your injury, plus reimbursement of expenses. Expenses that can be included in a claim include childcare, medical expenses, loss of earnings, home help and travel costs.
We can provide an estimate of what your claim may be worth; however these are not guaranteed.
