Accident At Work Compensation Claims
Although all employers have a responsibility to keep their staff safe and the workplace free of hazards, sometimes things get missed. If you have been injured in an accident at work, our personal injury solicitors are here to help get you the compensation you are entitled to.
An employer will need to pay out compensation for an accident at work if you are injured while you are at work and either completing a task you were assigned or doing something you would normally be expected to do. You will need to show that your employer could reasonably be expected to have foreseen what happened to you and that they did not put enough measures in place to keep you safe.
This just means that you cannot claim if you were injured as a result of using machinery or equipment without the knowledge or consent of your employer and that you can only claim against them for accidents that happen at a time when they are able to influence the environment you are in. Thus you could not claim for an accident during your commute, as they were not able to take steps to protect you at this time, but you could claim for an accident when you have been asked to visit a client’s premises, as your employer needed to make sure that the environment they were sending you into was safe.

How Much Compensation Am I Likely To Receive For My Personal Injury?
Everyone who is considering making a personal injury compensation claim wants to know how much compensation they can expect to receive as a result of what has happened to them. Our dedicated team of experienced personal injury solicitors will give you the best possible estimates as to how much you can expect to receive, based on the information you give us.
Compensation claims for all accidents and injuries are in two main parts. The first is to compensate you for the pain and suffering that you have experienced. The guideline amounts for these are ranges set by the Judicial College, and are set nationally and reviewed regularly. These guideline ranges for any particular injury can be very broad, which allows them to take into account the individual nature of your specific personal injury case. Our years of experience helping people just like you with their personal injury compensation claim allows us to give you the best possible estimate of where in this range your injury is likely to fall.
Your compensation claim will also include an amount based on the impact that your injury has had on your life. This is designed to make sure that you do not lose out financially as a result of your injury. This can include the cost of any medical treatment that you may have had to pay for privately, for example if there is a long delay to access physiotherapy via the NHS you can be reimbursed for this if you pay privately. If you are unable to work during your recovery, you can also apply for money to compensate you for the money you would have earned had you still been able to work. If your injuries are very serious, you may be able to claim for any modifications you need to your home or vehicle to make sure that you are able to continue to live the life you want.
As may now be obvious, the amount that you are able to claim in the second part of this compensation is often far greater than that available if you were just taking the Judicial College guidelines into account. Our dedicated team of no win no fee solicitors in Birmingham are able to ensure that you are claiming for the full range of expenses you are entitled to, because we believe that you should never be left worse off as a result of an accident or injury that wasn’t your fault.
How Quickly Can I Expect My Personal Injury Compensation Claim To Be Resolved With No Win No Fee Solicitors In Birmingham?
It can be difficult to be sure exactly how long a particular personal injury compensation case will take, as some take far longer to finish than others. We realise that it is important to finish your case as quickly as possible, to allow you to put your personal injury behind you and move on.
At the very fastest, cases can be resolved in just a few months, and some can even take just a matter of weeks. For a case to be settled this quickly, the other side will have accepted liability very quickly, without the need for lengthy investigations and evidence-gathering. They will usually be claims for smaller amounts of money, and so associated with less severe injuries. With less money at stake, the other side is less likely to consider it worth their while to string out the negotiations to encourage you to accept a lower offer.
Complicated personal injury claims include those which involve multiple people who are all partially responsible for what happened, as well as those with very serious injuries. Cases like that will usually take far longer to be resolved than those which are straightforward. If the claim has to be decided in court, the delays can increase further.

How Long Can I Wait Before Making A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
All personal injury compensation claims should be resolved within a time period of 2 years from the date at which the injury was sustained. In general, we recommend that clients begin their proceedings much earlier than this, as waiting can reduce the time available for negotiation. If you are approaching the deadline, or if you would like further guidance, contact our personal injury solicitors today.
In some cases, it can be important to wait a little time after the accident or injury before making the claim, as long as you stay within the two-year time limit. This is useful when the injuries you have sustained have not fully healed and where there is a chance that they could take longer to heal or be more serious than you realized. Taking advice from our no win no fee solicitors in Birmingham is not the same as starting a claim however. If you have suffered an accident or injury, contact as soon as possible to discuss your options and have the best chance of making the best possible case.
I’m Worried That Making An Accident At Work Compensation Claim Could Cost Me My Job
Legally, your employer is not allowed to take any action against you to punish you in any way for making a compensation claim following your . This includes not giving you promotion opportunities you would otherwise have had, changing your job to one that you like less, firing you or making your workplace so unpleasant that you resign (this last one is known as constructive dismissal).
Good employers don’t want to punish their employees for making an accident at work compensation claim. They recognise that your compensation claim is important to allow you to adapt to your injuries and that you were entitled to better protection than you received.
Making an accident at work compensation claim doesn’t just help you. Your colleagues can also benefit from you making an accident at work claim, as it will often encourage an employer to be more careful with their health and safety rules and can improve overall safety and working conditions.
You may also be worried that your company cannot afford to make a compensation payment and that the company will fail as a result. This would mean that you could still lose your job. Fortunately, this cannot happen. All employers are required to have Employers Liability Insurance, which covers them for all compensation payments for accidents at work. Your accident at work compensation claim would be paid out by the insurance company, ensuring that the company is not at any short-term risk as a result of your claim.

How Do I Make A Compensation Claim?
In order to make a personal injury compensation claim, you will need to follow a standard process.
Getting legal advice before starting your personal injury compensation claim can dramatically increase the likelihood of you receiving the compensation you deserve, and can also help you to make a claim for the full amount that you are entitled to. Our personal injury claims specialists are available 24 hours a day on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or you can claim online and we will call you back at a time to suit you.
Once you have asked us to act on your behalf, we will write to the person responsible for your accident. We will inform them that you are making a personal injury compensation claim, and that you believe that they were at fault. We will ask them to accept that they were to blame (this is called accepting liability).
If the other person refuses to accept that they were to blame, we will show them evidence that makes this clear. This evidence comes in many forms, including statements, photographs and videos and even their own accident book. Once we have provided them with evidence, very few employers will continue to dispute liability.
Once we have established and agreed who was to blame, we will then conduct negotiations on your behalf to agree the amount of compensation that you will accept. It is very common for the other party to offer a very low amount of compensation to begin with, to see whether you will accept this (a practice known as making a lowball offer). We will always advise you as to whether we believe that the amount of compensation being offered for your injuries is fair or not. Whether to accept an offer of compensation will always be your decision. If you reject an offer, we will explain this to the other party and provide the reasons we believe that you are entitled to a higher amount.
It is very rare for it to be impossible to reach agreement on the settlement amount for a personal injury compensation claim. In cases where the other person refuses to accept liability, or if we are not able to reach agreement as to a fair amount of compensation, we may need to go to court to get you the compensation you deserve.

Can I Make a Claim For My Accident?
If you have suffered an accident, you may be unsure as to whether you are entitled to claim compensation. In most cases, you will be able to make a claim, but there are a few conditions that must be met.
The first essential feature of a personal injury compensation claim is that you must have experienced an accident and that you must have suffered an injury. You are not able to make a compensation claim if you have not experienced any negative consequences. You are able to claim if you trip over some cracked paving and hurt yourself, but you are not able to claim if you stumble slightly over the same paving slab but do not injure yourself.
The next consideration when wondering whether you are able to make a personal injury compensation claim is to think about who is responsible for your accident. There must be someone else to blame for what happened to you, and this is the person or organisation that you will claim against. In the case of an accident or injury at work, your employer will almost certainly be the person at fault. This is because they have a legal responsibility to keep you safe and your injury demonstrates that they were unsuccessful in this task.
It is also necessary that the other person could reasonably be expected to have anticipated what happened to you. This is not the same as saying that they must have seen it coming or that they knew that this would happen to you. Just that they must have been able to predict it, if they had put sufficient effort into thinking about health and safety matters.
The final requirement is that they must have failed to take enough measures to keep you safe. Even if they have taken some measures, you are still able to claim if these were clearly inadequate.
If you are considering a personal injury compensation claim, our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors want to help you get the payment you deserve. There’s no need to wait. Call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online today. We’re available 24/7 to give you the help and advice you need.
