How Long Does Work Accident Compensation Take?
One of the questions we are often asked is how long it will take to get compensation for an accident at work. This depends on two points. Firstly, how bad your injuries are. If they are fairly minor, then your case could settle within months. If you have been more severely injured, you may be advised to wait and see what the long-term effects of the accident will be before you agree on a payment. In this event, we can ask for interim payments so that you have financial support while your case is ongoing.
The second consideration is whether your employer’s insurance company is willing to admit liability for the accident. If they do admit liability, then the case becomes about the amount of compensation you will be paid. We will ask our medical experts to prepare reports and use these to negotiate the size of your damages payment. If liability is not admitted and your case goes to court, it could take longer to be finalised.
How Much Compensation For An Accident At Work?
The amount you will receive by way of compensation for your work accident depends on your injuries. If they are severe or will impact your life for the foreseeable future, you can expect to receive a substantial payment. If you take advantage of our free initial consultation, we will be able to discuss how much you might be awarded. Alternatively, you can use our compensation calculator.
Will I Need To Go To Court For Work Accident Compensation?
We settle most work accident compensation claims without going to court. Where liability is admitted by the other side, we will put together robust evidence on your behalf and negotiate hard to secure the best possible offer of compensation.
If your case does go to court, either because liability is not admitted or because the payment offered is not sufficient, then we will ensure you are well prepared. Ensuring that you have the strongest possible case. You will be represented by an advocate with expertise in work accident damages claims.
How Long Do I Have To Claim Work Accident Compensation?
There is generally a three-year window within which you should start your work accident compensation claim. Some exceptions to this exist. For example, in the case of industrial disease where you did not realise until later that you had been injured. In this case, the three-year period begins from the date on which you should reasonably have known that you were injured.
“If there was a rating system for Solicitors/Law Firms you would be 10/10! Thanks again to Michael McGee for the successful outcome of my Personal Injury Claim. I never thought that it would have realised the amount that you secured on completion of the case. All the way you remained contactable and reassured me throughout, I am so grateful for this as being injured can be stressful enough without added anxiety. Even though I was injured in an industrial accident and still have the aches and pains, the compensation you won for me helps to make my family more comfortable.”
