    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Workplace injury lawyer in Suffolk

    If you’re injured in an accident in Suffolk whilst at work, then you need a workplace injury lawyer in Suffolk to help you to claim the personal injury compensation to help you get your life back on track. However when it comes to making a claim, many people make simple mistakes which see them being under compensated, so here are some of the most common. Let Accident Advice Helpline guide you towards a successful claim.

    Personal injury compensation

    The first is to not look into your rights. The majority of people who suffer accidents which could entitle them to claim compensation never go on to make a claim because they mistakenly believe they are not entitled to make a claim.

    This is a mistake and it’s something which we always advise people to watch out for as a law firm with a successful workplace injury lawyer in Suffolk. This is why we created our free 24 hour helpline, so people could check their rights without being obligated to go any further down the path.

    Not gathering evidence

    When you’re making a claim you will have to prove your case. This is because the other side gets the same rights as any defendant – namely that they will be considered innocent until proven guilty. If you’re unable to demonstrate your case, the courts will have not option but to find against you.

    As soon as you have been injured you should be gathering evidence, collecting the contact details of witnesses and passing these onto your law firm. You will not need to contact them directly – this is something you lawyers can do on your behalf. Photographic evidence can also be important in helping you to make a claim so if you can find it.

    Accepting a GP’s diagnosis

    When you are injured you may often receive a diagnosis from a GP. However, they are not specialists and can often miss things which prove more important later on. Getting additional information from an expert, can be crucial, if for no other reason than that it helps to have more than one expert opinion. We often use medical assessments to give us a clearer idea of how much compensation you might be entitled to if you are successful with your claim.

    Consult a workplace injury lawyer in Suffolk that you can trust at Accident Advice Helpline

    People often take the advice of an insurance firm and so end up not getting the quality of service they should be entitled to. This is because insurance firms have relationships with personal injury firms which sees them charge commission based on how much business they can send their way. That’s why it’s always important to consult an expert personal injury firm to increase your chances of securing the full amount of compensation to which you should be entitled. We can help you do that which is why, if you live in Suffolk personal injury compensation is sometimes only a phone call away.
