Our Personal Injury Solicitors In Somerset Are Experts With Accident At Work Claims
Everyone has the right to be safe in the workplace. If your employer has not taken sufficient steps to protect you from accident or injury and you suffer as a result, you are entitled to compensation. Our no win no fee claims solicitors have years of experience helping hundreds of clients just like you to get the compensation they deserve.
Making an accident at work claim means that you need to be able to show that your accident took place while you were working or on work premises, that you were performing your normal duties or a task you were asked to do and that your employer should have been able to predict what happened to you and did not take enough steps to prevent it.
Although this sounds complicated, it’s very straightforward. You can claim for an accident when your employer is able to protect you, so you can’t claim for a car accident on your way to work, for example. Your employer must also have had the opportunity to offer you training and safety equipment, so they cannot be responsible if you use a piece of machinery without their permission or knowledge.

Getting compensation for injuries you’ve suffered in a car accident is easy with our personal injury solicitors in Somerset. We have years of experience in demonstrating who was to blame for your car accident and making sure that you get the full compensation you are entitled to.

Compensation For Personal Injury Claims
Everyone who is considering making a personal injury compensation claim wants to know how much compensation they can expect to receive as a result of what has happened to them. Our dedicated team of experienced no win no fee claims solicitors will give you the best possible estimates as to how much you can expect to receive, based on the information you give us.
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.
In addition to this, you are also entitled to compensation for any financial costs, expenses or liabilities that you have incurred as a result of your injury. This is designed to ensure that you are not left financially worse off as the result of a injury that wasn’t your fault. This can include covering you for the loss of any earnings you could have expected during any period you have needed to be off work, or for the loss of potential future earnings, if your injuries mean that you are unable to return to your former profession. You are also able to claim the expenses associated with any additional medical care or rehabilitation that might have been necessary and hard to access via the NHS. For those who have very serious injuries, you are entitled to payments to allow you modify your home or vehicle to help you to live as close to the life you had before as possible. In general, you are entitled to claim back any expenses that you have had that would not have occurred had your injury not happened.
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 Somerset 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.
Will It Take Long To Complete My Personal Injury Compensation Claim With Personal Injury Solicitors In Somerset?
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.
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.
Personal injury compensation claims which take longer to be resolved tend to be the very complicated ones. This could be because the injuries involved are very serious, requiring lots of evidence and testimony to understand the appropriate amount of compensation. Alternatively, it could be because the other person refuses to accept liability, or liability is shared between multiple parties. Complicated claims like these will usually take far longer to be resolved.
No Win No Fee Personal Injury Compensation Claims
No-one wants to have to pay out a large, up-front payment just to try to get the justice they are entitled to, and this is even more important if you are suffering financial difficulties following your accident. This is why we offer our services on a no win no fee basis whenever possible.
When you take on a no win no fee personal injury claims solicitor, you don’t have to pay anything until we get you the compensation you deserve.

This is important, as it means that you will never be left financially worse off for seeking the compensation you are entitled to. We also cap our fees at a percentage of your compensation payment, meaning that you will always know in advance how much you will receive when you are offered a compensation amount and you will always receive the vast majority of any money paid out.
In a few situations, we are unable to work on a no win no fee basis. If you are unlucky enough to fall into this rare category, we will explain this straight away, and we will discuss the range of alternative funding options open to you to make sure that you can still get the legal help you need at a price that you can afford.

How Long Do I Have To Make A Personal Injury Claim?
Personal injury compensation claims are expected to be made as soon as possible after the event that caused them. At the most, you should have made your claim within two years of your accident. If you are getting close to this point, you should call our no win no fee claims solicitors today to get the help you need and to make sure that you don’t miss out.
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 Somerset 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.
Will I Lose My Job If I Make 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.
Very few employers would even want to punish an employee for making a compensation claim following an accident at work. Almost all employers understand that you need the compensation award to help you get your life back on track, and want to support you in that as far as is practical.
Making an accident at work compensation claim also provides your employer with a great deal of motivation to improve their health and safety equipment, procedures and policies. They will become fully aware of any failings that led to your accident, and are likely to want to fix these as quickly as possible. This helps to make your workplace safer for your colleagues, as well as yourself.
It can also be valuable to know that your employer is required to have Employers Liability Insurance. This covers them for any compensation claim made for any accident at work, including an accident at work compensation claim like yours. This means that you do not need to worry that the company will be unable to pay your compensation claim, or that making this payment will lead to the company being unsustainable and you losing your job as a result.
If you have suffered an accident at work and think that you might be able to make a claim, call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online now to arrange your free, no obligation consultation. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to get you the expert help you need.
How Do Compensation Claims Work?
Making a compensation claim follows the same process for all kinds of personal injury claims.
One of the first things to do if you are considering making a personal injury compensation claim is to call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online. We will provide you with the support and advice that you need to make sure that your claim progresses smoothly and that you have the highest chance of getting the positive outcome that you deserve.
We, acting on your behalf, will write to the person you are taking action against, explaining that you believe that they were responsible for your accident and that you are making a personal injury compensation claim against them. We will ask them to accept that they were legally responsible (liable) and give them a deadline by which they have to respond.
If they refuse to accept liability, we will show them evidence to support your claim. This can include any evidence you have gathered, such as the contact details of witnesses or photographs and videos of the location in which your accident occurred, as well as evidence we collect ourselves. It is very difficult for employers to claim that they were not responsible for accidents that took place at work.
After the other side have admitted that they were at fault in your personal injury claim, it is time to negotiate the compensation amount. Although we will handle all of the negotiations on your behalf, you remain in control at all times. We will inform you of all amounts that are offered to you and it will be your decision as to whether you accept or reject each offer. We will give you our expert advice, based on our years of training and experience making personal injury compensation claims, but the final decision will always rest with 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.

What Do I Need To Know To Make A Personal Injury Claim?
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 thing is that you must have sustained some kind of damage or loss as a result of your accident. If you have not sustained some kind of injury, whether physical or mental, you are not able to make a claim. Although near misses can be alarming, you are not able to make a personal injury compensation claim if the accident or injury was avoided, no matter how narrowly.
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.
You will also need to be sure that what happened to you wasn’t a freak occurrence. It doesn’t need to be something that happens regularly, but you can only claim for something that could reasonably have been foreseen, without sufficient care and attention.
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 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. Our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors are here 24 hours a day to help answer your questions and assist with your claim.
