Accident At Work Personal Injury Compensation CLaims
Being injured in an accident at work can be much more worrying than other types of personal injury, as you may be worried that your employer will blame you or that you will lose your job. Our no win no fee claims solicitors have years of experience helping people just like you to get the compensation they need whilst keeping the job they love.
For you to make an accident at work compensation claim against your employer, your accident must have been something your employer could have anticipated and they must not have taken enough steps to prevent it. You must also have been at work at the time and carrying out tasks you have been assigned or doing something you would normally be expected 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.

How Much Compensation Is Awarded On Average For Personal Injury Claims?
The amount of compensation you are likely to receive for your personal injury might seem like an easy question to answer, but all compensation payments are specific to your personal situation, so the only way to get an accurate assessment is to discuss your personal injury with our personal injury solicitors in East Sussex. There are some common aspects across all compensation claims, however.
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 no win no fee claims 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 part of your compensation claim is there to compensate you for any expenses or costs you have suffered associated with your injury. The aim here is that you should never be left financially or materially worse off following your injury than you would have been had the injury not happened. This can be a much larger payment than the first part of your compensation, as it can include the loss of earnings you may experience if you need to take off work to recover. It can also include modifications to your home or vehicle, if very serious injuries mean that you need these to resume your normal life. You are also able to request the money you need to access rehabilitation and any medical assistance that is not easily available on the NHS, such as physiotherapy if there are long waiting lists in your area.
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 East Sussex 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.
Does It Take Long To Make A Personal Injury Compensation Claim With Personal Injury Solicitors In East Sussex?
How long a personal injury compensation claim takes to complete depends on the nature of the case itself. We understand that you want your claim resolved as quickly as possible, and we work tirelessly to get you the compensation you need to put your personal injury behind you.
Cases that are resolved quickly tend to take only a few weeks or months. Cases that are resolved quickly are usually very straightforward, where the other person accepts liability and where they are also keen to resolve the matter as quickly as possible. Claims for less serious injuries also tend to be resolved more quickly, as the payments are smaller and it is less worth the effort of insurance companies fighting over every penny.
If your case is more complicated, for example if there is more than one person or organisation responsible for your injury or if the other side refuses to accept that they were liable for what happened, your case may take much longer to be resolved. The cases that take longest to complete are those which cannot be settled out of court and which require a judge to make the final decision.

What If My Boss Doesn’t Want Me To Make An Accident At Work Compensation Claim?
You should never be made to feel that your job is at risk if you make an accident at work compensation claim. It is actually illegal for your employer to punish you in any way for making a compensation claim following any accident at work, and the penalties can be very severe. They must not fire you, cause you to miss out on promotions or change your job to a less desirable one as a result of you making an accident at work compensation claim.
Good employers don’t want to punish their employees for making an accident at work compensation claim. They recognise that your compensation claim is important to allow you to adapt to your injuries and that you were entitled to better protection than you received.
Many people who have suffered an accident at work just like yours find that making an accident at work compensation claim actually encourages their employer to take safety matters much more seriously. This can lead to a variety of safety measures being implemented at their workplaces which improves conditions and safety for themselves and for all of their colleagues and co-workers.
You may also be concerned that your company are not able to afford to make a compensation payment for your accident at work. All employers are required to have Employers Liability Insurance, however. This means that you can be certain that your accident at work compensation claim will not force your company into bankruptcy or cause your job to be at risk because the business folds.

What Is The Compensation Claim Process?
To make your personal injury compensation claim, you will follow a simple process.
Getting legal advice before starting your personal injury compensation claim can dramatically increase the likelihood of you receiving the compensation you deserve, and can also help you to make a claim for the full amount that you are entitled to.

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.
Once liability for your accident has been agreed, we will begin negotiations as to the exact amount of compensation to be paid out. The other side will often make a lowball offer, in the hope that you will accept far less in compensation than you are entitled to. We will always give you our expert opinion, based on years of experience with personal injury claims just like yours, as to whether an offer is fair or not, but the decision will always be up to you.
It is almost always possible to reach agreement for compensation, especially with accidents that took place at work. If we are unable to convince the other party to accept liability, or if it is impossible to agree on compensation, your case may have to go to court to have a judge decide how much should be paid.

Can I Claim 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.
The most basic requirement for making a personal injury compensation claim is that you must have suffered an accident and had some form of damage or loss as a result. Your injury could be either physical or mental, but you cannot make a compensation claim if you have not experienced any negative consequences from your accident. Although experiencing a near miss can be alarming, you are only able to claim for accidents that actually happened, not those which you narrowly avoided.
The second aspect to consider is who you believe is to blame for what happened to you. If you want to make a personal injury compensation claim, you will need to claim against a person or organisation. You will need to show that they had some kind of responsibility for your welfare. In the case of an accident or injury at work, your employer has this kind of legal responsibility. As a result, you are almost always able to make a compensation claim for accidents that occurred in the workplace.
The person who was to blame for your accident must have been able to predict or foresee this event occurring. This is not saying that they must have known that it would happen, but it must have been sufficiently plausible that a reasonable person in that role should have been able to anticipate something along those lines taking place.
The final requirement is that they must have failed to take enough measures to keep you safe. Even if they have taken some measures, you are still able to claim if these were clearly 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.
