Can I Claim For An Accident At Work?
If you were hurt in a work accident because of inadequate health and safety or because someone was negligent, you may be able to claim compensation.
Your employer is required by law to:
- Provide a safe working environment
- Make sure you and others have proper training in safely using equipment and machinery
- Carry out risk assessments
- Provide protective and safety equipment
- Reduce the risk of accidents happening
How Much Does A Work Accident Claim Cost?
We know that costs can be a big source of concern and we make sure that our clients can bring their cases without any financial risk if they choose.
We can arrange for legal expenses insurance where necessary. This means that, if you were to lose your case, your costs would be covered by the insurance. If you win, a small premium would be payable from your compensation.
In some cases, you may be eligible for Legal Aid. We can advise you whether this is available for your claim.
If you win or settle your case, you can expect your employer’s insurance company to pay your legal costs as part of their payment to you.
How Much Compensation For Work Accident Injury?
The amount of compensation will depend on several factors, including how badly you have been injured, how long-lasting your injuries will be and the size of the financial losses you have sustained.
If you ring us, we can give you an estimate of the likely amount of compensation you could receive. You can also use our work accident compensation calculator.
When we make a claim on your behalf, we will claim two types of damages:
- General damages
- Special damages
This is compensation for the pain and suffering involved. It is also a payment for any loss of amenity if you are now unable to carry out activities you used to take part in. This could be sport, hobbies or socialising.
Special damages is compensation for all of the financial losses you have had. The largest category of special damages is usually loss of earnings and future loss of earnings.
You are also entitled to claim for work accident expenses, such as the cost of travelling to medical appointments, the cost of special equipment, prescription charges, the cost of care or therapy not available on the NHS and the cost of any home adaptations that need to be made.
At McGee Solicitors, we guarantee that you will keep 100% of your compensation.
How Long Does A Work Accident Claim Take?
The length of time to settle a work accident claim depends on how badly you have been injured and whether your employer’s insurance company admits liability.
If your injuries are ongoing, it is often better not to settle too quickly. This will give us the chance to make sure you are properly compensated for any future issues, such as continuing pain and the inability to return to work.
If your injuries are relatively minor and the insurer admits liability, it may be possible to settle your claim as soon as possible. We can negotiate with the insurer to try and agree the best possible figure in settlement.
Do I Have To Go To Court For A Work Accident Claim?
You do not generally have to go to court for a work accident compensation claim. Most of the time we are able to reach an out of court settlement with insurance companies.
We will arrange for expert medical reports to be prepared giving details of your injuries and the harm you have suffered. These, together with details of your financial losses, will form the basis of our work accident compensation claim.
Our personal injury solicitors are robust negotiators and we are usually able to achieve strong settlements for our clients.
Where the sum offered is not sufficient or the insurer does not admit liability, we will prepare your case for court where you will be represented by an expert personal injury Barrister. We will make sure that you have all the support you need throughout this process and that you are thoroughly prepared.
How Long Do I Have To Make A Work Accident Claim or Compensation?
There are time limits in which a work accident compensation claim should be started. This is generally three years from the date on which the incident happened. If you were not aware of the injury at the time, then the three years could run from the date on which you should reasonably have known about it.
If you have been hurt in a work accident, you are strongly advised to speak to McGee Solicitors straight away. If you ask us to represent you, we will start work at once, gathering evidence while the incident is still fresh in everyone’s memories.
