Making An Accident At Work Compensation Claim With Personal Injury Solicitors In Surrey
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 a compensation claim for an accident at work requires you to demonstrate that your employer should have known that this could happen to you and that they did not take enough steps to protect you. Your accident will need to have taken place at work and while you were either performing a task you were asked to do or doing something you would normally be expected to do.
This might sound very limiting, but it really isn’t. It just means that you can’t claim for accidents that happen on your way to or from work (unless you are on land owned by your employer). You also can’t make a claim if you were doing something dangerous, such as using machinery, without the knowledge or consent of your employer.

Typical Compensation Amounts For Personal Injury Claims
Compensation claims are highly variable and are designed to compensate you for the losses you personally have suffered. This means that it is incredibly difficult to give you an accurate estimate of the amount of compensation you can expect without knowing the specifics of your personal injury. There are a few common factors in compensation claims, however.
Compensation claims are usually separated into two parts. The first part is easier to calculate. This is the part designed to compensate you for the pain and suffering you have experienced. Compensation amounts in this category are set nationally by the Judicial College and a range is given for expected payments for each individual type of injury. Whilst this can give a basic guide, the ranges can be very wide, to allow for the specific nature of each individual injury. Our experienced no win no fee claims solicitors will be able to give you better guidance as to where in the range your injury is likely to fall.
The second aspect to your injury compensation claim is there to make sure that you are not left financially worse off as a result of your injury. This includes compensating you for any money you may have had to pay out to aid your recovery, such as rehabilitation and physiotherapy, to adapt to the injuries you have, including home modifications or the purchase of prosthetics in very serious injuries, and also to make sure that you do not lose out through lack of work if you have to take some time off to heal. If you are unable to return to your previous line of work as a result of your injuries, you may even be able to claim for the loss of the potential earnings you could have expected. As may be clear, this can often be the far larger portion of your compensation payment.
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 Surrey 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.
How Quickly Can I Expect My Personal Injury Compensation Claim To Be Resolved With Personal Injury Solicitors In Surrey?
Each personal injury compensation claim is unique, and it is not possible to give an exact answer as to how long each one will take. We realise that it is important to you that your claim is finished as quickly as possible, to ensure that you can put your personal injury behind you with the financial support you need.
Some of the very quickest cases to resolve can be completed in as little as a few weeks. These are always very simple cases in which the other side has accepted liability very quickly and without the need for extensive evidence-gathering. These cases are usually for the less serious injuries, as the compensation amounts are smaller ad there is less incentive for the other side to draw out negotiations to encourage you to accept less compensation than you are entitled to.
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.
What If I Can’t Afford Legal Help With My Personal Injury Claim?
We believe that everyone is entitled to seek compensation following a personal injury, and we don’t believe that a lack of funds should prevent you from getting the legal advice that you need. This is why we offer our services on a no win no fee basis to almost all of our clients.
A no win no fee agreement allows us to act on your behalf to pursue your compensation claim without you having to pay anything up front. If we are unable to get you the compensation you deserve, you won’t have to pay anything for our services.

Our system also ensures that will always receive the vast majority of the compensation you are awarded. All our fees are explained clearly in advance and we will make sure that you understand exactly how much you will receive in your pocket before you accept any offer of compensation.
In a very small number of cases, we are unable to offer a no win no fee agreement. In the unlikely event that your accident or injury claim falls into this category, we will make sure that you understand this straight away, and we will make sure to discuss possible alternative funding options with you to make sure that you have an affordable route to the help you need.

Will I Have To Pay For My Personal Injury Solicitors In Surrey If I Lose My Compensation Claim?
We guarantee that you will not be asked to make any payments whatsoever if we are unable to win you the compensation you deserve.

This means that you can be completely sure that you will never be left worse off as a result of seeking justice for your accident.
How Long Can I Wait Before Making A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
Compensation claims for injuries sustained as the result of an accident are expected to be made as soon as possible, and at the very least within 2 years of the event. Although the process only needs to be begun by this date, not completed, it is important that you get prompt legal advice from our no win no fee claims solicitors today.
Sometimes it is worth delaying starting your compensation claim a little while. This is to allow the full extent of your injuries to become clear, as some injuries are not immediately apparent or they may take longer to heal than expected. You should still get expert legal advice from our personal injury solicitors in Surrey as soon as possible, however, as this gives us the maximum time to put together the best possible case for you.
What If My Boss Doesn’t Want Me To 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.
Good employers would never want to punish an employee for claiming the compensation they are entitled to following an accident at work. They appreciate that you need the compensation you are awarded to ensure that you are able to continue life as before and to help you get back to where you were.
Another advantage of making an accident at work compensation claim is that it can help to improve safety and conditions for everyone at your workplace, not just yourself. Suffering an accident at work because your employer failed to protect you could happen to anyone, and making a compensation claim highlights to your employer the ways in which their systems are not sufficient. This encourages them to take action to make improvements which will benefit your colleagues as well as yourself.
All employers are also required to take out Employers Liability Insurance, to ensure that you do not need to worry about causing the company serious financial difficulties as a result of your accident at work compensation claim. Your company will not be forced to fold or to downsize as a result of you making a claim.
If you are wondering whether you can make an accident at work compensation claim, or if you are ready to begin the process, call us on 0800 567 7074 or 0121 565 4317 or claim online. Our dedicated team of claims specialists are here to help, 24 hours a day.
How A Compensation Claim Works
In order to make a personal injury compensation claim, you will need to follow a standard process.
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.
As your solicitors, we are able to write to the person you want to take legal action against on your behalf. We notify them that you are making a personal injury compensation claim and that they are considered at fault. We ask them to accept that this is true and give them a deadline by which they need to respond.
If the respondent denies liability, we will need to gather and present evidence to them, demonstrating that they were at fault for your accident. This evidence can take many different forms. It might be pictures of the location where your accident took place, videos of the accident happening if these are available or statements from people who were there when your accident happened who can explain the exact situation. More technical legal and medical arguments may also be relevant. Almost all employers will accept liability, once presented with the evidence that we gather.
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 personal injury compensation claims are resolved through the above process. In very rare cases, the other party will either not accept that they were at fault, or they will refuse to offer a fair amount of compensation given your injuries. In these situations, we may need to go to court to allow a judge to decide your case. If this happens, we will support you throughout the process.

Can I Make a Claim For 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.
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.
It is also necessary for someone else to have to been to blame for your accident, for you to be able to make a compensation claim. This person or organisation does not have to have been the immediate or direct cause of what happened, but they do need to have been in some way responsible for your welfare and making sure that you are not put at risk. For accidents or injuries that occur at work, it is very easy to fulfil this criteria, as your employer has a legal responsibility to look after your health and safety.
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 thing to think about is whether the person responsible for your welfare put sufficient measures in place to protect you. Even if some steps were taken, you are still able to claim if these were not adequate for the circumstances you found yourself in.
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.
