As an employee, your employer is supposed to provide you with a safe and hygienic environment in which to do your job. Your place of work should be safe for you to move about and free from hazards. If you use equipment, machinery or vehicles, these must be kept in a good state of repair with any servicing necessary being carried out on a regular basis. You should also be properly instructed in how to carry out your job in a way that is safe to do so and which takes account of guidance from the Health and Safety Executive or necessary legal requirements.

If your employer does not take such steps, they may be considered negligent.

Accident Claims Frequently Asked Questions

Before you choose whether to claim compensation with our panel of accident claims solicitors you may have questions that you need answering. These are examples of questions a solicitor may be asked along with answers to them.

Q: Is there a time limit for making a personal injury claim?

A: Yes, in most cases of personal injury, there is a time limit within which a claim can be made for it. Generally, this time limit is 3 years, which runs from the date of the accident. However, there are also some cases where this 3-year limitation period is adapted to allow claimants a fair chance to seek the compensation that they deserve.

An example of this relates to claimants that are under 18. If they have grounds to seek compensation but they’re not yet of legal age to make a claim, the time limit does not come into effect until their 18th birthday. Similarly, if a claimant is mentally incapacitated and therefore unable to make a claim for themselves, the time limit does not come into effect until they gain the ability to make legal proceedings. In the case that this never happens, a litigation friend can be appointed to seek compensation on their behalf.

Q: What is a litigation friend?

A: In a nutshell, a litigation friend is a legal term for someone that makes a claim on behalf of someone else. As mentioned, if someone is mentally incapacitated and therefore unable to make a claim for themselves, a litigation friend can be appointed to seek compensation on their behalf. Another example of when this may be necessary is for claimants that are under 18 and therefore unable to make legal proceedings until they come of age. If they want to secure their compensation before their 18th birthday, they can also appoint a litigation friend to do so on their behalf. This way, they can use their payout to pay for injury-related costs, such as medical expenses, which they may not be able to afford using their own finances.

Q: Could Your Specialist Team Assist Me?

A: Yes, if you have the right to claim compensation, one of our personal injury solicitors will be happy to handle your case.

Q: Could I Claim With A Nationwide Service?

A: Accident Claims UK offers a nationwide service that you can use no matter what part of the country you are in. With new advances in telecommunication, many claims are handled via the phone or email meaning a solicitors location is not important.

Q: Would My Injury Be Checked By A Doctor?

A: An appointment will be set up for you with a doctor who can assess your injuries. This allows our team to better assess what your entitlement to compensation is. The report may also be used as evidence.

Q: Where Could This Doctor Be Located?

A: Your meeting will be with a doctor based in Altrincham or as close to this area as is available at the time. Doctors who may carry out this check-up locally could include,
