Personal Injury Claims Following An Accident At Work
All employers have a responsibility to keep their staff safe. If you are injured in an accident at work, our no win no fee personal injury solicitora 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 no win no fee solicitors in Manchester can help to maintain a professional relationship with your employer.
Making an accident at work claim means that you need to be able to show that your accident took place while you were working or on work premises, that you were performing your normal duties or a task you were asked to do and that your employer should have been able to predict what happened to you and did not take enough steps to prevent it.
This is much less restrictive than it sounds. It just means that you can only make a claim for things that your employer might have been able to control, so you could not make an accident at work claim for a car accident during your commute for example. You would also not be able to claim if you were using work equipment but were doing so without the knowledge or consent of your employer.

Get The Compensation You Deserve For Your Car Accident With Our Personal Injury Solicitors
Insurance companies have a strong interest in offering the smallest possible payments they can to compensate you for injuries you have sustained in a car accident that wasn’t your fault. They will often offer amounts far below that which you are entitled to. Working with our team of no win no fee solicitors in Manchester gives you the confidence to know that you are getting a fair amount of compensation for your injuries and ensures that you get the money you need to help you recover.
How Much Compensation Is Awarded For Personal Injury?
Although it might seem like a simple question, it is not possible to give an accurate estimate of how much compensation your personal injury might attract without knowing the details of your case. This is because there are so many different factors which will have an impact. In general, however, compensation claims can be divided into two parts.
The first aspect of our compensation is there to recognise and acknowledge the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of your personal injury. This is set nationally by the Judicial College and is governed by a set of guideline amounts that each type of injury is likely to receive in compensation. These amounts are usually ranges, and the ranges can be quite broad, to allow for the high degree of individual variation in your specific injuries. Our experienced team of personal injury solicitors are able to give you a much more accurate view of how much you are likely to receive for this part of your compensation claim.
The second aspect to consider when thinking about how much compensation you might receive is any costs, expenses and losses you might have suffered as a result of your injury. The purpose of this aspect of your compensation claim is to make sure that you are not disadvantaged financially as a result of your injury. This can include loss of earnings if you cannot work while you are recovering, adjustments and modifications you need to make to your home or vehicle if your injuries are particularly severe, and the costs associated with any rehabilitation, including treatments that you have needed to take privately, for example physiotherapy. Any other costs associated with your injury can be included here.
It can be difficult to be sure that you are claiming the right amount of compensation for your accident or injury, and many of our clients are initially offered compensation payments that are far too low for the specifics of their case. Our expert team of experienced no win no fee solicitors in Manchester work hard to get you the full payments you deserve to help you get your life back on track after your accident or injury.
How Long Does It Take To Make A Personal Injury Compensation Claim With No Win No Fee Solicitors In Manchester?
Each personal injury compensation claim is unique, and it is not possible to give an exact answer as to how long each one will take. We realise that it is important to you that your claim is finished as quickly as possible, to ensure that you can put your personal injury behind you with the financial support you need.
Some cases can be settled very quickly indeed, with many taking just a couple of months and the very fastest needing only a few weeks. For cases to be resolved this quickly, they will usually be for more minor injuries and, therefore, smaller compensation amounts. If you are claiming a smaller amount of money, there is less incentive for the other side to reduce your claim through lengthy negotiations. Personal injury compensation claims that are resolved this quickly as also the ones where the other side accept liability almost immediately, removing the need for evidence gathering and offering proof, both of which take time.
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.

Is There A Time Limit Before I Have To Make A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
Making a personal injury compensation claim is something that the courts expect you to do promptly. In most cases, this should be within two years of the date at which you were injured, although this can very occasionally be extended if you were not able to realise that you had been injured at the time at which it happened. We recommend that you do not wait long before beginning your compensation claim, as this does reduce the time available for negotiations. If you are in any doubt at all, contact our personal injury solicitors today to discuss your case.
There are some circumstances in which it might be useful to wait a short while before making your personal injury compensation claim. These include when you are not certain whether you might develop other symptoms that have not yet appeared, or if you are not sure how long your injuries may take to fully heal. There is no need to delay in talking with our no win no fee solicitors in Manchester, however, as we can use any additional time to make sure that we are putting together the strongest case we can to get you the compensation you deserve.

We understand this concern, but it is important to understand that this would be illegal. Your employer is not permitted to punish you in any way for making an accident at work compensation claim.

What Is The Process For Making A Compensation Claim?
Making a compensation claim for any accident or injury you may have sustained follows the same basic process.
One of the first things to do if you are considering making a personal injury compensation claim is to call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online. We will provide you with the support and advice that you need to make sure that your claim progresses smoothly and that you have the highest chance of getting the positive outcome that you deserve.
Once we are able to act on your behalf, we write to the person at fault in your accident. We let them know that you are making a compensation claim following your accident, and we request that they acknowledge that it was their fault (this is known as us asking them to ‘accept liability’). We will give them a deadline by which they must respond.
If the other party refuses to accept that they were to blame in your accident, we will find and send evidence to support your claim. This might include photographs of the location in which your accident took place, a copy of the company’s accident book, witness statements and anything else that might be relevant. For workplace accidents in particular, it is very unusual for liability to be disputed for long.
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.
Sometimes, claims will have to go to court to be judged, rather than being settled in the process described above. This is very rare, but it happens if the other person refuses to accept that they were responsible for your accident, or if it is not possible to agree on a fair amount of compensation. If this happens in your case, we will be with you throughout the process, making it as straightforward and stress-free as possible.

How Do I Know Whether I Am Entitled To Compensation After My Accident?
Following an accident, many people just like you are left unsure as to whether they should make a personal injury compensation claim. There are a few conditions that are required before you are entitled to make a compensation claim, but they are very simple and most people will be able to claim.
This may seem self-evident, but you are only able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you have experienced an accident and were injured as a result. Your injury can be either physical or psychological, but you cannot claim for injuries that you could have suffered, had your accident been slightly more severe. You also cannot claim for a near miss. We understand that narrowly avoiding injury can be alarming, but you can only claim compensation for injuries that you have actually suffered.
In order to make a compensation claim, you must also be able to demonstrate that there was someone else who was at fault in your accident. They do not have to have caused the accident directly, and they don’t even need to have been present. The important thing is that they had a responsibility to make sure that you were safe. In the workplace, your employer has this legal duty of care, meaning that almost all accidents at work fulfil this criteria.
The other party must also have been able to anticipate what happened to you, if they had thought about it sufficiently. This does not mean that they must have had the idea already, or that they must have known that this would happen. Just that a reasonable person who put some effort into thinking about health and safety matters (and who took the time to research appropriately) would have realised that this was a risk.
The final consideration is what measures were taken to protect you. If no protective measures were put in place, your claim is highly likely to be successful. If they did take some steps to keep you safe, you may still be able to claim if these were not sufficient, given the degree of risk.
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 specialists on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online today to arrange your free, no obligation consultation.
