Accident At Work Compensation Claims
Everyone has the right to be safe in the workplace. If your employer has not taken sufficient steps to protect you from accident or injury and you suffer as a result, you are entitled to compensation. Our no win no fee claims solicitors have years of experience helping hundreds of clients just like you to get the compensation they 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 is much less restrictive than it sounds. It just means that you can’t claim for accidents that happen while you are travelling to or from work and that you must have been doing something that you were authorized to do when your accident happened. You can claim if you are injured by a faulty kettle in the break room but you can’t claim for injuries if you were using a piece of machinery without your employer’s knowledge or consent.

Compensation For Personal Injury Claims
Although we understand the desire to know the average compensation payments for a personal injury, every compensation payment is different, and the ranges can be very wide indeed. This is because the compensation you receive is directly related not just to the injuries you have received but also to the impact this has had upon your life.
Every compensation claim, including personal injury compensation claims, can be divided into two parts. The first is set nationally by a governing body known as the Judicial College. This covers the pain and distress you have suffered as a result of your personal injury. The Judicial College sets a range of payments that are considered typical for a particular injury. These ranges can be very broad, however, meaning that it can be difficult for you to where your personal injury will fall within that range. Our experienced no win no fee claims solicitors can help make sense of these ranges for you.
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 personal injury solicitors in Berkshire 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 Long Does It Take To Make A Personal Injury Claim With Personal Injury Solicitors In Berkshire?
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.
Some cases can be resolved in a matter of just a few weeks or months. These tend to be the easier claims to process, where the other party does not try to claim that the accident wasn’t their fault and where they are keen to agree the compensation amount as quickly as possible. Less severe injuries also tend to be quicker to resolve, as the amounts of money involved are smaller and the other party is less likely to want to put in the additional effort to argue about how much you deserve.
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.
Can I Get No Win No Fee Help With My Personal Injury Claim?
We believe that everyone is entitled to the legal help they need to make a personal injury compensation claim.

If we are unable to secure this for you, you won’t owe anything. Importantly, our fees are set at a percentage of your compensation payment, meaning that you can rest assured that you will always receive the vast majority of the money awarded.
Under some circumstances, we are not able to offer our services on a no win no fee basis. If this is the case for your accident or injury, we will make sure that you know as soon as possible and we will suggest alternative funding options.

How Making A Compensation Claim Works
To make your personal injury compensation claim, you will follow a simple process.
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.
As your solicitors, we are able to write to the person you want to take legal action against on your behalf. We notify them that you are making a personal injury compensation claim and that they are considered at fault. We ask them to accept that this is true and give them a deadline by which they need to 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.
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.
Almost all of our cases are resolved without needing to go to court, as the other person accepts liability and we find a compensation amount that both sides think is fair. In a very few cases, however, it might be necessary to ask a judge to decide, if we are unable to form an agreement.

How Do I Know Whether I Can Make A Personal Injury Claim?
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 requirement is that you must have been harmed in some way as a result of your accident. You can be compensated for any injuries, physical or mental, that you sustain following your accident, but you are not able to receive compensation for a near miss, where you avoided injury. If you are struck by a falling object, for example, you are able to make a claim. If you narrowly miss being struck because you jumped out of the way, you are not entitled to compensation.
The next thing to consider when trying to work out whether you are able to make a personal injury compensation claim is who was to blame for what happened to you. In order to make a claim, there must have been someone at fault. They do not need to have been the immediate cause of what happened, but they do need to have been responsible for your welfare in some way. If your accident occurred at work, this can be very easy to establish, as your employer has a statutory duty of care, meaning that they have a legal obligation to ensure that you are safe.
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 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 have suffered an accident and you believe that someone else was to blame, we are here to help you put together the best possible keyword compensation claim. Call our experienced team of expert personal injury claims solicitors on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online today to see how we can help.
