Our Personal Injury Solicitors In Liverpool Are Experts With Accident At Work Claims
Employers have a legal duty to keep their staff safe and if they fail to do this and you are injured as a result, you deserve compensation. It can sometimes seem scary to make a compensation claim against your employer, as you may worry that you will lose your job or that they might punish you in some other way. Our no win no fee claims solicitors have the years of experience you need to help you get the compensation payment you deserve whilst still keeping a good relationship with your employer.
An employer will need to pay out compensation for an accident at work if you are injured while you are at work and either completing a task you were assigned or doing something you would normally be expected to do. You will need to show that your employer could reasonably be expected to have foreseen what happened to you and that they did not put enough measures in place to keep you safe.
This might sound complicated, but it’s really just common sense. Your employer can’t do anything to keep you safe as you travel to or from work, so they are not responsible for you during this time. They are also only responsible for you if you are doing things that they know about. If you are injured using a piece of machinery that you use without their knowledge or permission, they couldn’t have offered you the training or protection you needed to keep you safe.

Our No Win No Fee Claims Solicitors Are Car Accident Specialists
Our personalinjury solicitors in Liverpool 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.
How Much Compensation Am I Likely To Receive For My Personal Injury?
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 in two parts. The first part is to compensate you (as far as this is possible) for the pain and suffering that you have endured. This is done via guidelines produced by the Judicial College (a governing body) which set ranges of payments that should be expected for each specific injury. These ranges can be very broad, making it hard to know where in this range your personal experience is likely to fall. Our years of experience allow us to give you a more accurate estimation, based on the precise nature of your injuries.
The second aspect to consider when thinking about how much compensation you might receive is any costs, expenses and losses you might have suffered as a result of your injury. The purpose of this aspect of your compensation claim is to make sure that you are not disadvantaged financially as a result of your injury. This can include loss of earnings if you cannot work while you are recovering, adjustments and modifications you need to make to your home or vehicle if your injuries are particularly severe, and the costs associated with any rehabilitation, including treatments that you have needed to take privately, for example physiotherapy. Any other costs associated with your injury can be included here.
Working with our dedicated team of personal injury solicitors in Liverpool means that you can rest assured that your compensation claim includes all aspects of your financial losses as a result of your accident or injury and that you are making the most appropriate compensation claim for your personal circumstances.
How Quickly Can I Expect My Personal Injury Compensation Claim To Be Resolved With Personal Injury Solicitors In Liverpool?
All personal injury compensation claims are different, and some of them will take far longer to resolve than others. We endeavour to resolve all our clients’ cases as quickly as possible to allow them to move on with their lives and get them the compensation payment they need to do so.
In cases where agreement is reached quickly, the entire case can be concluded in just a few weeks. This requires that the other party accepts liability almost immediately, as gathering evidence and demonstrating liability can add significantly to the duration of the case. It is only possible to complete a case in this period of time if it very straightforward, which usually means that the injuries are relatively minor as well. Cases involving smaller sums of money are often easier to resolve quickly, as the other party has less to gain from fierce negotiations.
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.
What If I Can’t Afford Legal 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. The time immediately following your accident can be difficult, both emotionally and financially, so we don’t believe that you should have to make large, up-front payments or have to put yourself at financial risk to get the compensation you deserve.
When you instruct us as your solicitors on a no win no fee basis, we are able to act on your behalf, without you needing to pay anything at all until you receive the compensation you are entitled to. If we are not able to get you the compensation you deserve, you won’t owe us anything. This means that you are able to seek the compensation you need without worrying that you will be financially worse off as a result.
In a very few situations, we are unable to offer our services on a no win no fee basis. Although this is rare, we will make sure that we tell you immediately if you fall into this category. If you are unlucky enough to have your compensation claim be ineligible for no win no fee agreements, we will discuss a variety of alternative funding options with you to help ensure that you get the legal help you need at a price you can afford.
If you are unsure about making a personal injury compensation claim, or if you are ready to begin the process, call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 now or claim online today.

What Is The Time Limit For Making A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
It is important that you make your personal injury compensation claim as soon as you can after your accident. All claims should be made within 2 years of the incident that caused your injury, unless there are exceptional circumstances. If you are approaching this point, it is important that you talk with our no win no fee claims solicitors today. They will be able to advise you on how best to proceed.
Depending on your accident or injury, it might be worth having a small delay before making your personal injury compensation claim. This is because some injuries do not appear until some time after the accident and others may vary wildly in how long they take to heal. You shouldn’t delay getting the legal help you need from our personal injury solicitors in Liverpool, however, as we will use any additional time to make sure that we are putting together the best case we can to get you the compensation you are entitled to.
Will I Be Sacked For Making An Accident At Work Claim?
Employers are not permitted to punish an employee in any way for making an accident at work compensation claim. This includes you losing your job, being passed over for promotion or having your job changed in a way that is less favourable for you. If your employer were to take any of these actions, they would be liable for further compensation and damages.
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.
If your employer has not been taking health and safety seriously enough, making an accident at work compensation claim can help to keep your colleagues safe as well. Once they realise that your accident is a serious incident, and that you are making a compensation claim, they will usually begin to pay much more attention to the safety of you and your colleagues.
You may also be relieved to know that the business you work for will not have to close down as a result of your accident at work compensation claim. Even for very large claims (where the business may not be able to afford these payments), the payments themselves will be covered by the Employers Liability Insurance, which all employers are required to take out.
If you are thinking about making an accident at work compensation claim, there’s no need to wait. Call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online now to see how we can help.
How Do Compensation Claims Work?
Making a personal injury compensation claim is simple.
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.
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 party does not accept that they were to blame for your accident, we will prove this to them. We will provide them with evidence and supporting documentation to demonstrate that we can present a convincing case in court. It is extremely rare for an employer to continue to dispute liability beyond this point.
Once the other person has agreed liability for your accident, we are able to negotiate with them to agree an amount of compensation that is acceptable to both sides. It is very common for the other party to make a ‘lowball offer’ initially. This is when they offer an amount of compensation that is very much lower than you are entitled to, in the hope that you will accept it, or to adjust your expectations I the hope that you will accept a slightly higher offer than that. We will offer you our expert advice as to whether the offer being made is fair or not, but the final decision as to whether to accept or reject an offer will always be down to you.
Almost all of the personal injury compensation claims we deal with are resolved without needing to go to court. This is because most people are willing to accept liability, once they have been presented with the relevant evidence. It is also usually possible to agree on a compensation amount that seems fair to both sides. If these things are not possible, however, you may need to go to court and ask a judge to decide. In the unlikely event that you are in this position, don’t worry. We will support you throughout, and help you to get the compensation you deserve.

Can I Make a Claim For 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.
You are only able to make a compensation claim for things that you have actually suffered. You are only able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you have experienced an accident, not if you suffered a near miss. Similarly, you are only able to make a claim for the damage you have actually sustained, not the damage that you could have suffered, or for injuries that you narrowly avoided.
The next consideration when wondering whether you are able to make a personal injury compensation claim is to think about who is responsible for your accident. There must be someone else to blame for what happened to you, and this is the person or organisation that you will claim against. In the case of an accident or injury at work, your employer will almost certainly be the person at fault. This is because they have a legal responsibility to keep you safe and your injury demonstrates that they were unsuccessful in this task.
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.
Finally, you should think about whether the person responsible for your safety took any steps to look after your wellbeing. Even if they did put some measures in place, you are still able to make a compensation claim if these were not sufficient for the degree of risk or for the circumstances you found yourself in.
If you have suffered an accident and it wasn’t your fault, you are entitled to compensation. Our personal injury claims specialists want to help you get the payment you deserve, so call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online today to arrange your free, no obligation consultation.
