Accident At Work Compensation Claims
Accidents or injuries at work are worryingly common, despite all employers having a legal duty to keep their staff safe. Many of our clients are hesitant about bringing a personal injury at work claim against their employer, as they are concerned that they might lose their job or suffer other consequences. Our personal injury solicitors have helped hundreds of clients just like you to get the compensation they deserve whilst still keeping their jobs.
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 makes sense as a rule. You are only able to claim against your boss if they didn’t take steps to protect you and they can only protect you during the period that you are at work. They can’t keep you safe during your commute, so you can’t make a claim against them if you have an accident on the way to work, for example. They can also only keep you safe if they know what you are doing and if you follow the rules they have laid out for you.

Compensation 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 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 claim amounts for all personal injuries are divided into two main parts. The first part of the claim is based on the amount of pain and suffering you have experienced. Because this is such a subjective assessment, there are guidelines put forward by the national governing body (the Judicial College). These give a range of amounts that are usually paid out following each specific injury. The ranges can be very wide, however. This is because they are designed to ensure that the exact nature of your injury can be taken into account. Unfortunately, this can make it very difficult for anyone without experience to know where in that range their injury is likely to fall. Our highly trained personal injury solicitors have years of experience in making personal injury claims and are able to give you an accurate assessment of where in the 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.
With the help of our expert team of no win no fee solicitors in Bristol, you can be confident that your personal injury claim includes everything that you are entitled to, making sure that you have the financial support you need to be able to concentrate on making a full recovery.
How Long Will It Take To Receive My Compensation As A Result Of My Personal Injury Claim With No Win No Fee Solicitors In Bristol?
Some personal injury compensation claims can take much longer than others, based on the exact details of the case. We work tirelessly to ensure that your case is resolved as quickly as possible, to allow you to get the compensation you need to move on with your life.
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.
More complicated cases, where the other person disputes what has happened or where there are multiple different people who were to blame for your accident, can take significantly longer than this. If your personal injury compensation case has to go to court to be resolved, this can dramatically increase the time it takes to receive the compensation you deserve.

How The Compensation Claim Process Works
The process of making a personal injury compensation claim is the same for almost all types of personal injury.
The first thing to do before starting your personal injury compensation claim is to make sure that you have arranged the legal support and advice that you will need. To discuss your claim and your options, call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online. Working with our team of dedicated personal injury claims solicitors gives you the best possible chance of getting the compensation payment you deserve.
Working on your behalf, we write to the person responsible for your accident (this person is often known as the respondent). In this letter, we explain that you are claiming compensation for your injuries and that you believe that they were at fault. We ask them to accept responsibility (the legal term for this is accepting liability) for what happened and give them a deadline by which to inform us if they disagree.
If the other side tells us that they do not accept liability (this is known as them disputing liability), we will put together a file of evidence to support your claim. This will include any evidence you have found, as well as anything we gather. It can include a visual record of the event, if one exists, witness statements and expert testimony as to accepted safety guidelines for your industry. Once presented with this information, almost all employers will accept liability.
As soon as the other party has agreed liability, we can begin negotiations to decide how much compensation is fair. This will always be completely your decision, but we will offer you advice and support to ensure that you can be confident in your decisions. The other party will often offer a very low initial amount, known as a lowball offer, to see whether you will accept less than you are entitled to. With our experience, we are able to give you the information you need to identify these kinds of tactics and get the full amount of compensation you deserve for your accident.
In the unusual situation that it is not possible to reach agreement, either because the other party refuses to accept that they are liable, or because it is not possible to find a compensation amount that both parties will accept, it may be necessary to go to court to resolve your personal injury compensation claim. This is very rare, and we will support you throughout the process if it does turn out to be necessary.

Can I Make a Claim For My Accident?
If you have suffered an accident, you may be wondering whether you are able to make a personal injury compensation claim. In most cases you can, but there are a few things that must be true for your claim to be successful.
The first essential requirement is that you must have sustained some kind of damage or loss as a result of an accident that you have experienced. Narrowly avoiding injury can be alarming and worrying, but you are only able to claim compensation for the damage you have actually sustained.
The second thing that is required for you to make a compensation claim is that there must be someone else who was at fault in your accident. They do not have to have caused it directly, but they must have been in some way responsible for keeping you safe. If your accident or injury occurred at work, this can be very easy to demonstrate, as your employer has a legal obligation t consider your health and safety and to take all appropriate steps to protect you.
You will also need to be sure that what happened to you wasn’t a freak occurrence. It doesn’t need to be something that happens regularly, but you can only claim for something that could reasonably have been foreseen, without sufficient care and attention.
The final thing to think about is whether the person responsible for your welfare put sufficient measures in place to protect you. Even if some steps were taken, you are still able to claim if these were not adequate for the circumstances you found yourself in.
If you were the victim of an accident that wasn’t your fault, we want to help you get the compensation you deserve. Call our expert team of personal injury claim specialists on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online today to arrange your free, no obligation consultation.
