Accident At Work Compensation Claims
Accidents at work can sometimes be easier to resolve than other personal injury claims, as it can be easier to prove that your employer had a responsibility to look after your welfare. Working with our personal injury solicitors can help you to maintain a good relationship with your employer whilst also getting you the compensation you deserve.
In order to make a work accident claim, your employer must have been able to reasonably foresee that your accident might happen and not have taken sufficient measures to keep you safe. Your accident must have taken place at work and as a part of a task you have been asked to do.
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.

Our Personal Injury Solicitors Can Get You The Best Compensation For Your Car Accident Claim
Our no win no fee solicitors in Perth have many years of experience helping the victims of car accidents, just like you, to get the compensation they deserve. Our expertise means that we have seen all of the ‘tricks of the trade’ that insurance companies use to avoid paying out to victims or to make much smaller payments than you are entitled to.
Average Compensation Payments For Personal Injury Claims
It is impossible to know in advance how much compensation will be awarded for a particular claim. Each personal injury compensation claim is unique and the compensation obtained will be based on your personal circumstances. There are several different factors that are taken into consideration in all compensation claims, however.
Compensation claims are usually separated into two parts. The first part is easier to calculate. This is the part designed to compensate you for the pain and suffering you have experienced. Compensation amounts in this category are set nationally by the Judicial College and a range is given for expected payments for each individual type of injury. Whilst this can give a basic guide, the ranges can be very wide, to allow for the specific nature of each individual injury. Our experienced personal injury solicitors will be able to give you better guidance as to where in the range your injury is likely to fall.
The second aspect to be considered when deciding a compensation claim is any costs or financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injury. The aim of financial compensation following your injury is to get you back as close as possible to where your life would have been had your injury not happened. This could involve compensating you for loss of earnings if you have to take time off work to recover from your injury, or even paying a larger sum for the loss of potential future earnings if you are unable to return to your former career as a result of your injuries. You may also need to pay for additional transportation costs, fees for additional medical treatment not easily available on the NHS or making modifications to your home in severe cases if that is needed to help you to continue to live independently.
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 Perth 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 Claim With No Win No Fee Solicitors In Perth?
It can be hard to know how long a particular personal injury compensation case will take, as some can be settled very quickly, while others will take much longer to be decided. We know that you want to put your personal injury behind you as quickly as possible, so we do everything that we can to resolve your claim as quickly as possible.
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.
If your personal injury claim involves a very serious injury or if it is not completely clear exactly who was responsible for your accident, your case is likely to be much more complicated and may take significantly longer to be resolved. If your claim cannot be settled out of court, it will take even longer.

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.

Can My Employer Fire Me For Making An Accident At Work Compensation Claim?
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 would never want to punish an employee for seeking the compensation they are entitled to. The compensation you deserve is there to help you get your life back on track after your accident, not to punish your employer, and almost all employers understand this.
Making an accident at work compensation claim can also help to ensure that your workplace is safe and secure for your colleagues. Making a compensation claim can ensure that your employer understands the importance of safety procedures and can help to make your workplace safer for everyone.
You can also be sure that your accident at work claim is not impacting the long-term financial health of the company you work for. They are required to take our Employers Liability Insurance, which covers them for all accidents at work. This insurance means that you should never feel pressured into not making an accident at work compensation claim on the basis that you and your colleagues may be out of work if the company is not able to pay.

How Do Compensation Claims Work?
Making a compensation claim follows the same process for all kinds of personal injury claims.
Most people who have suffered a accident or injury will want to take legal advice before starting their personal injury compensation claim, and we believe that this is a very good idea. We are available 24/7 to ensure that you can access the help you need whenever suits you. You can call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online to make sure that you get the support and assistance you need for your personal injury claim.
The first thing we, as your solicitors, need to do is notify the other person that you are making a personal injury compensation claim against them. We ask them to accept that they were at fault and we give them a deadline by which they must respond.
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.

What Are The Requirements For Making A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
If you have suffered an accident, you may not be sure whether you are able to claim compensation or not. Many of our clients tell us that they wondered the same thing. The requirements for making a personal injury compensation claim are very simple and most people are eligible.
The first thing to note is that you must have sustained an actual injury as a result of your accident. This injury does not need to have been exclusively physical, as psychological damage is also recognised as important. You cannot make a personal injury compensation claim for near misses, however, or if you have an accident but are not injured in any way.
The next requirement for you to make a personal injury compensation claim is that there must have been someone else to blame for what happened to you. This person or organisation does not need to have taken specific action, or to have been present when your accident happened, but they must have had some form of responsibility for your welfare. For accidents that took place in the workplace, this can be very straightforward to establish, as your employer has a statutory duty of care.
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.
Finally, you should consider whether any safety measures they put in place to protect you were sufficient. If no steps were taken to keep you safe, or to minimise the severity of any injuries you might sustain, you are very likely to be able to make a compelling compensation claim. Even if some measures were taken, you are still able to claim if these were inadequate.
If you have experienced an accident that wasn’t your fault, we want to help you get the compensation you deserve. Our expert team of dedicated personal injury claims solicitors are here 24 hours a day, so call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online today. We can even call you back at a time that suits, you to arrange your free, no obligation consultation.
