Making An Accident At Work Compensation Claim With Personal Injury Solicitors in Glasgow
There is a legal responsibility on all employers to look after their staff and keep them safe. If your employer has failed in this, you are entitled to compensation for your accident or injury. Our no win no fee claims solicitors have years of experience in helping people just like you to get the compensation they deserve following their accident at work.
To make an accident at work compensation claim, you will need to show that you were at work at the time of your accident or injury, that you were performing tasks you were asked to or that you would normally be expected to, that your accident could have reasonably been anticipated and that your employer did not take enough steps to protect you.
This makes sense as a rule. You are only able to claim against your boss if they didn’t take steps to protect you and they can only protect you during the period that you are at work. They can’t keep you safe during your commute, so you can’t make a claim against them if you have an accident on the way to work, for example. They can also only keep you safe if they know what you are doing and if you follow the rules they have laid out for you.

Working With Our No Win No Fee Claims Solicitors Can Get You The Most Compensation After Your Car Accident
If you’ve been injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you might have been offered compensation by the insurance company. These offers are often far, far less than you are entitled to. Our dedicated personal injury solicitors in Glasgow have years of experience, allowing us to make sure that you get the compensation you deserve.
How Much Compensation Am I Likely To Receive Following My Personal Injury Claim?
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.
Compensation claims can be thought of as being divided into two distinct parts. The first part aims to compensate you for the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of your injuries. Because this is such a subjective thing, the governing body (the Judicial College) has set guidelines for how much compensation should be awarded for different injuries. They provide a range within which compensation payments should fall for each injury, but these ranges are often very wide. This is to allow for the individual nature of your personal injury. Our expert no win no fee claims solicitors have years of experience, allowing them to give you the most accurate estimate of where in this range your injury is likely to fall.
The rest of your compensation claim is there to minimise the impact that your injury has had on your life. This is there to help you get your life as close as possible to where it would have been had your injury not happened. Obviously, money can’t fix everything, but this is there to pay any additional costs you may have incurred. This could include any loss of earnings if you are unable to work as a result of your injury, and even future loss of potential earnings if you are unable to return to your previous job as a result of your injuries. You are also able to claim for any medical treatment that you have paid for privately if it is difficult to access on the NHS, such as physiotherapy, and also for making modifications to your home or vehicle if this helps you to adjust to any permanent injuries.
Working with our dedicated team of personal injury solicitors in Glasgow means that you have the benefit of our years of experience, allowing us to claim for many expenses that you might not have realised could be included in your compensation claim. We want to get you the financial support you need to help get your life back on track.
Personal Injury Compensation Claims – How Long Do They Take To Resolve With Personal Injury Solicitors in Glasgow?
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.
For cases that can be resolved quickly, they are likely to take only a few weeks or months. These cases tend to be for more minor injuries and where the other person accepts liability easily. When smaller sums of money are involved, the other party is likely to want to resolve the case simply and quickly, without arguing in great detail over each offer of compensation. It is in their interest to resolve the case as quickly as possible to reduce their costs, as well as your stress.
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.

What Is The Deadline For Making 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 no win no fee claims solicitors today to discuss your case.
In some cases, it can be important to wait a little time after the accident or injury before making the claim, as long as you stay within the two-year time limit. This is useful when the injuries you have sustained have not fully healed and where there is a chance that they could take longer to heal or be more serious than you realized. Taking advice from our personal injury solicitors in Glasgow is not the same as starting a claim however. 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.

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.

How Do I Know Whether I Am Entitled To Compensation After My Accident?
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 essential feature of a personal injury compensation claim is that you must have experienced an accident and that you must have suffered an injury. You are not able to make a compensation claim if you have not experienced any negative consequences. You are able to claim if you trip over some cracked paving and hurt yourself, but you are not able to claim if you stumble slightly over the same paving slab but do not injure yourself.
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 necessary that your accident or injury is something that the other party could have reasonably predicted or anticipated, if they had given sufficient thought to health and safety concerns. This is not the same as saying that they must have known that it would happen. Merely that they could have realised that this was possible, if they had thought carefully enough.
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 have suffered an accident and someone else was to blame, whether through their negligence or carelessness, you are entitled to compensation. If you are considering making a personal injury compensation claim, don’t delay. Call us now on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online to discover how we can help you to get the compensation you deserve.
