In order to make an accident at work personal injury compensation claim, your accident must have taken place at work and as a part of something you would normally have been expected to do. You must be able to demonstrate that your employer could have predicted your accident, that they did not take enough measures to keep you safe.
This is actually much more straightforward than it sounds. You can’t make an accident at work claim against your employer if you are injured in a car accident during your commute, for example. You may still be able to make a claim against the other driver, but your boss can’t be considered at fault. You also cannot make a claim if you were using equipment or machinery without the permission or knowledge of your employer.

Our No Win No Fee Claims Solicitors Are Experts In Car Accident Claims
Working with our personal injury solicitors in Cornwall can take all of the stress out of making a personal injury claim following a car accident. Many insurance companies take advantage of people who have been injured by making unreasonably low offers of compensation. Our dedicated team are able to give you the expert advice you need to know that the compensation amount you have been offered is both fair and reasonable.
Average Compensation Payments 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.
The second part of your injury compensation claim is the more variable part. This is designed to make sure that you are not left financially worse off as a result of your injury. Ideally, this should mean that you are left in the same position as you would have been if your injury had not happened. This includes compensating you for the loss of earnings if you are unable to work for a period while you recover, and even for the loss of potential future earnings if your injuries mean that you are unable to return to your former line of work. Additionally, you can claim for any expenses you might have incurred as a result of what happened to you, including any additional transportation costs, care you may have had to pay for and rehabilitation help that you have needed to access privately, such as physiotherapy. In the case of very serious injuries, you may also be able to claim for modifications to your home and vehicle to allow you get your life back as close as possible to where it was before.
In many cases, the second part of your personal injury compensation claim can be substantially larger than the first part. Working with our expert team of personal injury solicitors in Cornwall means that you can be sure that you are claiming everything you are entitled to. If you would like to discuss the amount of compensation you might receive as a result of your accident, or if you are ready to begin your personal injury compensation claim, call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online now.
Will My Personal Injury Compensation Claim Take Long With Personal Injury Solicitors In Cornwall?
Every personal injury compensation claim is different, and some will take longer to settle than others. We understand that our clients want the claims process to be over as quickly as possible, to get them the financial support they need and also to allow them to move on without worrying about their pending personal injury compensation claim.
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 include those where the other person does not accept that they were liable for what happened to you, or if multiple people were all partially to blame. In these situations, your case may take far longer to be resolved and for you to get the compensation you need. If your case has to go to court, it will also take much longer to be completed.

If you have suffered an accident or injury, contact as soon as possible to discuss your options and have the best chance of making the best possible case.
Can My Employer Fire Me For Making An Accident At Work Compensation Claim?
It is illegal for any employer to fire an employee for making any kind of accident at work compensation claim. They are not allowed to take any kind of action against you, or to punish you in any way. This includes reducing the opportunities available to you or changing you job in a way that you do not like, unless this is absolutely required as a result of your injuries.
The vast majority of businesses would not want to punish their employees for making an accident at work compensation claim anyway. Most people understand that the compensation you receive following your accident is there to help you to recover and to ensure that you do not suffer financially as a result of your injuries. Even the most selfish of employers can understand that you might need the money from your compensation payment to cover the costs of getting the treatment you need to get you healthy and back to work as quickly as possible.
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.
All employers are also required to take out Employers Liability Insurance, to ensure that you do not need to worry about causing the company serious financial difficulties as a result of your accident at work compensation claim. Your company will not be forced to fold or to downsize as a result of you making a claim.

How Making A Compensation Claim Works
Making a compensation claim for any accident or injury you may have sustained follows the same basic process.
The first thing to do is to make sure that you have the help of a personal injury claims solicitor. Our team of experienced personal injury claims specialists are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have about your personal injury compensation claim. You can call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online and we will call you back at a time convenient to you.
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 the person at fault in your accident denies that they were to blame, we will collect all of the evidence we can find and present them with a strong case as to why they are liable. This can include pictures, videos and statements, as well as more technical and legal backing documents if needed. Once presented with this evidence, almost all employers will accept that they are liable.
When the other side have agreed that they are liable for your personal injury compensation claim, we will then begin to negotiate the settlement (this is how much money you will be given). We will make sure that you know about every offer that is made, and also whether we believe that it is a fair offer or not. The decision as to whether or not to accept an offer of compensation will always be yours, but we will help you and give you the information you need to be confident in your decision.
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.

What Are The Requirements For Making A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
It can be difficult to know whether you are entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. There are few conditions that must be met for you to make a compensation claim.
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.
It is also essential that the other party could have reasonably been expected to anticipate your accident. This is not the same as saying that they must have known that it would happen, but it must have been something that could have been predicted with enough thought and careful attention.
The final thing to think about is whether they took sufficient measures to protect you, or to minimise the severity of any injuries you might experience. Even if they took some basic measures, you are still able to claim if these are not considered sufficient.
If you have been injured as the result of an accident and there was someone else who could have helped to avoid or minimise your injuries, you are able to make an personal injury compensation claim. If you are in this position, call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online today.
