Our Personal Injury Solicitors In Bradford Specialise In Accidents At Work
All employers have a responsibility to keep their staff safe. If you are injured in an accident at work, our personal injury solicitors in Bradford can help. We have years of experience helping people just like you get the compensation they deserve following an accident at work. Working with an experienced team of personal injury solicitors in Bradford can help to maintain a professional relationship with your employer.
To make an accident at work compensation claim, you will need to show that you were at work at the time of your accident or injury, that you were performing tasks you were asked to or that you would normally be expected to, that your accident could have reasonably been anticipated and that your employer did not take enough steps to protect you.
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.

Compensation Amounts For Personal Injury Claims
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 no win no fee claims 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.
The second, and often much larger, part of your compensation claim is to compensate you for any costs, expenses or losses associated with your injury. The aim of compensation is to give you as close as possible to the same situation as you would have ad if your injury had not occurred. This means that you are able to claim for any loss of earnings if you are unable to work as a result of your injury, or even for the loss of the earnings you would have been likely to receive if your injuries mean that you are unable to return to your previous work. You may also be entitled to claim for additional medical support, the help of a carer if this has become necessary and even some modifications to your home or vehicle if they are necessary to allow you to resume the life you had previously.
Expert help from our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors means that you can be sure that you are claim for all of the expenses you are entitled to. This means that you will have the financial support you need to get your life back on track as quickly as possible.
Will My Personal Injury Compensation Claim Take Long With Personal Injury Solicitors In Bradford?
How long a personal injury compensation claim takes to complete depends on the nature of the case itself. We understand that you want your claim resolved as quickly as possible, and we work tirelessly to get you the compensation you need to put your personal injury behind you.
Cases that are resolved quickly tend to take only a few weeks or months. Cases that are resolved quickly are usually very straightforward, where the other person accepts liability and where they are also keen to resolve the matter as quickly as possible. Claims for less serious injuries also tend to be resolved more quickly, as the payments are smaller and it is less worth the effort of insurance companies fighting over every penny.
If you are unlucky enough to have a very complicated case, for example if multiple people were to blame for what happened, or if your accident resulted in very serious injuries and there are complex negotiations as to the amount of compensation that is appropriate, your case can take significantly longer to be resolved. Cases that have to go to court are the longest compensation cases.

Do I Have A Time Limit For Making A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
There is a deadline of two years to make a persona injury compensation claim. This is almost always measured from the date at which your accident or injury took place, but in some exceptional cases it can be from the date at which you realized that you had sustained an injury, if this was later. In general, it is better not to get too close to the deadline, as this leaves reduced time to negotiate. The best plan is to contact our no win no fee claims solicitors as soon as possible.
It can sometimes be worth waiting a little while before starting your compensation claim for your accident or injury.

How Do I Make A Compensation Claim?
Making a personal injury compensation claim follows a simple procedure.
You will want to make sure that you have access to the correct legal advice and assistance. Our specialised personal injury claims solicitors are able to provide you with all of the help and support you may need and are available 24/7. Call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online to discuss your accident and to begin your claim.
We will write to the person to blame for your accident on your behalf. We inform them that you are making a compensation claim for your injuries and that you hold them responsible. We give them a deadline by which they need to either accept that this is true, or provide an explanation as to why they disagree.
If they refuse to accept liability, we will show them evidence to support your claim. This can include any evidence you have gathered, such as the contact details of witnesses or photographs and videos of the location in which your accident occurred, as well as evidence we collect ourselves. It is very difficult for employers to claim that they were not responsible for accidents that took place at work.
Once the other person has agreed liability for your accident, we are able to negotiate with them to agree an amount of compensation that is acceptable to both sides. It is very common for the other party to make a ‘lowball offer’ initially. This is when they offer an amount of compensation that is very much lower than you are entitled to, in the hope that you will accept it, or to adjust your expectations I the hope that you will accept a slightly higher offer than that. We will offer you our expert advice as to whether the offer being made is fair or not, but the final decision as to whether to accept or reject an offer will always be down to you.
The vast majority of personal injury compensation claims are resolved without having to go to court, through the process described above. If it is not possible to reach an agreement as to how much compensation is fair, or if the other party refuses to accept that they were to blame, your case might need to be resolved by a judge. This is not as daunting as it might sound, especially as we’re with you the whole way through.

Can I Claim Compensation After My Accident?
Many of our clients can find it difficult to be sure that they are able to make a personal injury compensation claim. There are a few simple requirements that must be fulfilled in order for you to make a personal injury compensation claim.
The most basic requirement for making a personal injury compensation claim is that you must have suffered an accident and had some form of damage or loss as a result. Your injury could be either physical or mental, but you cannot make a compensation claim if you have not experienced any negative consequences from your accident. Although experiencing a near miss can be alarming, you are only able to claim for accidents that actually happened, not those which you narrowly avoided.
The second aspect to consider is who you believe is to blame for what happened to you. If you want to make a personal injury compensation claim, you will need to claim against a person or organisation. You will need to show that they had some kind of responsibility for your welfare. In the case of an accident or injury at work, your employer has this kind of legal responsibility. As a result, you are almost always able to make a compensation claim for accidents that occurred in the workplace.
The person or organisation that you are claiming against must also have been able to predict something along the lines of what happened to you. This does not mean that you have to prove that they did anticipate it, but a reasonable person who was taking their role seriously in terms of health and safety should be able to foresee the danger.
The last thing to check is whether they have taken sufficient steps to remove the risk, or to minimise the consequences if this is impossible. Even if some safety measures were taken, you may still be able to claim if these were not sufficient.
If you have suffered an accident and you would like to discuss the possibility of making a claim, call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online today to arrange your free, no obligation consultation. Our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors are here 24 hours a day to help answer your questions and assist with your claim.
