    Workplace injury compensation in Dumfries

    At the Accident Advice Helpline, our goal is to help you obtain the maximum possible when you claim workplace injury compensation in Dumfries. To accomplish this, our solicitors place a strong emphasis on fully educating you about the claims process.

    Innocent errors that could affect your workplace injury compensation in Dumfries

    Many mistakes have the potential to hurt your chances of receiving full and fair compensation from your employer. They include:

    1. Talking about your case
      Your employer’s insurance company may contact you in an attempt to elicit incriminating information about your case. If they want you to provide a recorded statement, refer them to your solicitor. They may use your statement for one purpose only: to reduce the amount of compensation they pay you.
    2. Posting information on social media
      Your employer’s insurance company will look at your social media accounts, blogs and web pages to find information that may help them to avoid taking on full responsibility for your accident. To prevent your employer’s insurance company from using your updates to disprove the extent of your injuries, avoid mentioning your accident in posts accessible to the public.
    3. Missing doctor’s appointments
      If your doctor asks you to attend follow-up appointments, make sure you follow their orders. If you miss appointments without good reason, your employer’s insurance company may interpret it as a sign that you are not as injured as you suggest.
    4. Applying too late
      A strict three-year time limit applies to all accident claims. If you do not apply for compensation within this time limit, your employer will have the right to reject your claim.
