Making A Compensation Claim For An Accident At Work
Accidents at work can sometimes be easier to resolve than other personal injury claims, as it can be easier to prove that your employer had a responsibility to look after your welfare. Working with our no win no fee solicitors can help you to maintain a good relationship with your employer whilst also getting you the compensation you deserve.
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 only make a claim for things that your employer might have been able to control, so you could not make an accident at work claim for a car accident during your commute for example. You would also not be able to claim if you were using work equipment but were doing so without the knowledge or consent of your employer.

Our No Win No Fee Solicitors Are Car Accident Specialists
Insurance companies have a strong interest in offering the smallest possible payments they can to compensate you for injuries you have sustained in a car accident that wasn’t your fault. They will often offer amounts far below that which you are entitled to. Working with our team of personal injury solicitors in Oxfordshire gives you the confidence to know that you are getting a fair amount of compensation for your injuries and ensures that you get the money you need to help you recover.
How Much Compensation Am I Likely To Receive For My Personal Injury?
Although it might seem like a simple question, it is not possible to give an accurate estimate of how much compensation your personal injury might attract without knowing the details of your case. This is because there are so many different factors which will have an impact. In general, however, compensation claims can be divided into two parts.
Compensation claims can best be thought of in two parts. The first is there to make up for the pain and suffering you have endured, at least as far as this is possible. This follows national guidelines set down by the Judicial College. Under this framework, each injury has a range of compensation and payments for that injury are expected to fall somewhere within that range. The range can be very broad, however, to account for the vast individual differences in each injury.
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.
Expert help from our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors means that you can be sure that you are claim for all of the expenses you are entitled to. This means that you will have the financial support you need to get your life back on track as quickly as possible.
Can I Expect To Get My Compensation Quickly For My Personal Injury With Personal Injury Solicitors In Oxfordshire?
It can be difficult to be sure exactly how long a particular personal injury compensation case will take, as some take far longer to finish than others. We realise that it is important to finish your case as quickly as possible, to allow you to put your personal injury behind you and move on.
At the very fastest, cases can be resolved in just a few months, and some can even take just a matter of weeks. For a case to be settled this quickly, the other side will have accepted liability very quickly, without the need for lengthy investigations and evidence-gathering. They will usually be claims for smaller amounts of money, and so associated with less severe injuries. With less money at stake, the other side is less likely to consider it worth their while to string out the negotiations to encourage you to accept a lower offer.
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.
Can I Get Help With My Personal Injury Claim On A No Win No Fee Basis?
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.
Our no win no fee agreements mean that you are able to instruct us to work on your behalf, without making any payments up front. We will only take payment once you have received the compensation payment you are entitled to. If we are unable to get you the compensation you deserve, you won’t owe us a penny. Even more importantly, our fees are set as a percentage of your payment, meaning that you know exactly how much you will need to pay before accepting any offer of compensation and you will always receive the majority of your compensation.
There are a very few situations in which we are unable to offer our services on a no win no fee basis. In the unlikely event that you fall into this category, we will discuss the variety of different funding options with you to find the best way for you to get the help you need at a price you can afford.
If you are considering making a personal injury compensation claim, don’t hesitate. Our expert team are waiting to take your call. Call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 now or claim online and let our expert team of personal injury claims solicitors help you with your claim.
If I Lose My Claim, Will I Have to Pay For My Personal Injury Solicitors In Oxfordshire?
No. You can rest assured that you will never be asked to make any payments for our services if we are unable to win you the compensation you deserve following your accident or injury. This is the most important thing about a no win no fee personal injury compensation claim. You will never be left worse off as a result of making this claim and seeking justice
Is There A Deadline For Me Making A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
There is a deadline of two years to make a persona injury compensation claim. This is almost always measured from the date at which your accident or injury took place, but in some exceptional cases it can be from the date at which you realized that you had sustained an injury, if this was later. In general, it is better not to get too close to the deadline, as this leaves reduced time to negotiate. The best plan is to contact our no win no fee solicitors as soon as possible.
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 Oxfordshire, 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.
Can My Employer Fire Me For Making An Accident At Work Compensation Claim?
You should always be able to continue working in your old job, despite making an accident at work compensation claim, provided that your injuries do not mean that you are unable to perform the tasks required. Your employer is not allowed to punish you in any way for making an accident at work compensation claim, so your old job should still be available to you.
Most employers are actually very understanding about your need to make an accident at work compensation claim, as they know that it is essential that you get the support you need to get your life back on track after your accident.
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.
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.

How Do I Make A Compensation Claim?
Making a compensation claim for your accident or injury follows a relatively simple, straightforward process.
Before making a personal injury compensation claim, it can be important to get some legal advice and help. Our expert team of experienced personal injury claims solicitors are here 24 hours a day to make sure that you can access the support you need. Call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online to give yourself the best possible chance of getting the compensation you need.
Our first step is to write to the person responsible for your accident, explaining that you are making a personal injury compensation claim, that you consider them to be liable (the legal term for being to blame) and giving them a deadline by which to respond.
If your employer does not accept that they are to blame for your accident, we will set about proving this. We might request evidence from you, if you have any available, and we may also seek out other forms of evidence ourselves, such as taking photographs or seeking expert testimony. Accidents at work almost always result in the employer admitting liability.
Once we have established and agreed who was to blame, we will then conduct negotiations on your behalf to agree the amount of compensation that you will accept. It is very common for the other party to offer a very low amount of compensation to begin with, to see whether you will accept this (a practice known as making a lowball offer). We will always advise you as to whether we believe that the amount of compensation being offered for your injuries is fair or not. Whether to accept an offer of compensation will always be your decision. If you reject an offer, we will explain this to the other party and provide the reasons we believe that you are entitled to a higher amount.
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?
In the aftermath of an accident, most of our clients are looking for reassurance. Many of them are not sure whether they fulfil the criteria for making a personal injury compensation claim. In most cases they are able to claim, as the requirements are very straightforward.
All personal injury compensation claims require that you actually experienced an accident, and that you sustained some form of damage or loss as a result. You are only able to claim compensation for damage that you have actually sustained, not for damage that you were lucky to avoid. Similarly, you are not able to make a claim for an accident that almost happened.
In order to make a compensation claim, you must also be able to demonstrate that there was someone else who was at fault in your accident. They do not have to have caused the accident directly, and they don’t even need to have been present. The important thing is that they had a responsibility to make sure that you were safe. In the workplace, your employer has this legal duty of care, meaning that almost all accidents at work fulfil this criteria.
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 suffered an accident and you would like to discuss the possibility of making a claim, call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online today to arrange your free, no obligation consultation.
