We all aware of the idiom which reminds ‘accidents happen’ but when they happen to us it is not always so easy to remain nonchalant about them. Any injury that we sustain as a result of a preventable incident will naturally leave us a little shaken and, with physical and emotional recoveries to contend with, we don’t want to add financial worries to this list of concerns.
This is why processing an accident claim is such a worthwhile venture. Not only will you receive compensation for the injuries you sustained if successful but your actions could highlight the need for improved safety procedures to be adopted, thus preventing future accidents of this kind.
Most solicitors provide general advice in relation to many legal issues. Edwards Hoyle is different. Specialising only in personal injury claims, they offer expert, tailored advice from day one. Their partners have an average of fifteen years of experience dedicated solely to handling personal injury claims, so all of their experience is concentrated on getting you the injury compensation you deserve.
They deal with a wide range of injuries, from minor whiplash claims to the more extensive multiple injuries and catastrophic claims whether the accident is one suffered whilst at work , in or on a vehicle or whilst out and about as part of your normal day to day activities. No matter how minor the injury, these solicitors are committed to providing free expert advice to ensure that your compensation claim is dealt with appropriately and as swiftly as possible.
When choosing a solicitor to handle your claim it is always advisable to search for a ‘no win no fee’ service. Put simply, if you win these solicitors claim their costs from the other side so there is no cost to you. If you lose, we do not get paid and the fees of the other side are paid by an insurance policy taken out by us – once again, at no cost to you.
Many employees are reluctant to bring accident claims for various reasons. For example, if you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident at work, you may be worried about losing your job or about being treated differently by your employer and colleagues following the complaint.
In fact, there are laws in place to prevent your employer from treating you unfairly because you are pursuing legitimate legal action against them. Furthermore, they should provide you with adequate equipment and materials and provide a safe system of work with appropriate supervision and training.
Employers who breach these duties and do not follow such provisions are breaking the law and putting the health and safety of you, and your colleagues, at risk. Importantly, bringing a claim against your employer may urge them to take the steps needed to prevent such accidents occurring in the future. By processing a claim for a work related incident you could therefore be benefitting not just yourself, but those who work with you every day of the week.
