HOW LONG DO YOU HAVE TO MAKE A CLAIM?

Standard procedure limits you to three years after the date of the accident or diagnosis to start a claim for compensation. This limit is in place to ensure that its clear to see what injures you sustained due to the accident.

If you’re approaching the time limit you should not delay in getting in touch, the claims process can take a while to get started so its vital you act quickly to ensure your claim can be successful.

There are a few exceptions to the three year limit which are:

  • Psychological trauma – if the accident caused a serious brain injury and is a loved one if making a claim on their behalf, then there is no time limit for making a compensation claim.
  • Manufacturing or design fault – If the equipment you were using had a fundamental defect, the time limit may be increased.
  • Overseas work accidents – Accidents that take place overseas may result in the time limit for making a claim being shorter depending on the circumstances.

HOW DOES A NO WIN NO FEE AGREEMENT WORK?

You’ve probably heard the phrase no win no fee used before, they’re also known as conditional fee agreements. They are simple, you won’t have to pay a penny win or lose.

We understand all of this might make you worried about incurring hidden costs. We assure you there are none, we instead secure our payment from your opponents insurers when we are successful with your claim.

In the unlikely event that we lose your no win no fee personal injury claim we promise we will still not charge you a penny. We have insurance policies that cover us in those circumstance. We don’t like to be negative at Injury Lawyers UK but its important you have a full understanding of how a no win no fee agreement works.

  • Read how we helped John after his life changing accident at work
  • I’d been a scaffolder for all my life, I enjoyed the work and working outside as part of a team. This was until I had a nasty fall from scaffolding three stories up. I landed feet first causing serious injuries to my left ankle and leg.

    When the accident occurred I had been under a lot of pressure to get a job finished on time and had been working double shifts to ensure this was possible. This had been normal practice at the company I worked for. I feel like the accident wouldn’t have happened if I was not under such extreme pressure and working long hours.

    I was unable to work for more than a year while I recovered and had several major operations on my ankle, at one point there was a high chance of me losing it all together. I can now walk with a stick with a slight limp, better than I had feared would be possible.

    Throughout this time I was supported by Injury Lawyers UK, they helped me receive the first class medical treatment I needed. They fought tirelessly to secure the maximum amount of compensation possible to ensure I wasn’t left with money worries in the future as I’ll never be able to work as a scaffolder again.

    They had quickly managed to secure an interim payment from my employer to ensure I could make ends meet before the final settlement was paid.

    Everyone who I dealt with at Injury lawyers UK was very friendly and helpful, my file handler and the senior partner visited me at my home several times to discuss the case and see how I was recovering. They took all the stress out of the claims process which helped me focus on my recovery.

    Injury Lawyers UK secured me £400,000 of compensation for my injury, this has enabled me to pay off my mortgage and reimbursed the money I have lost out on due to my injuries. I may never be able to continue in my dream job anymore but they have helped me look forward to my future.

What makes a claim successful?

For a claim to be successful we will need to establish which party was responsible for the accident occurring. This could be the local authority or the land owner if you suffered an injury in a slip or trip, the driver of a vehicle if you was involved in a road traffic accident, or it could be your employer if you was injured in an accident at work.

Ask yourself the following questions and if you answer any of them with a yes, its likely you’ve suffered an injury that could be worthy of a compensation claim.

  • Are you seeing a doctor or receiving medical treatment for an injury sustained in the accident?
  • Have you been making repeat hospital visits to treat the injury?
  • Have you taken time off work to recover from the injury?
  • Have your injuries stopped you from returning to work in the same role or working the same hours?

Slip, Trip or Fall Compensation Claims

Slips, Trips and Falls are very common not only in the workplace but in public areas, they account for over a third of all major injuries in the workplace. Often a slip or trip can result in a more serious accident such as falling from a raised working area or into dangerous machinery.

The UK Health and Safety Executive report that there is 111,000 injuries caused by slips, trips and falls every year. If you’re one of these unlucky few and have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Had a slip, trip or fall?

If you’ve had a slip, trip or fall in a public place then you could be entitled to receive compensation for the injuries you suffered. Whether you tripped over wires, uneven paving or slipped on a wet surface we can help you.

When we think about a slip or trip most don’t think of how serious the injuries can often be, for those unlucky enough to slip or trip the injuries sustained can be very serious. Broken bones, extensive bruising and muscle damage are often caused by slips and trips.

At Injury Lawyers UK our team of solicitors can help you get the rehabilitation needed to make a full recovery whatever injuries you’ve suffered. To speak to a solicitor now call 0800 1123 156 or complete an online enquiry form.

  • Tripping over wires or boxes
  • Falling from height because of faulty equipment
  • Slips on wet or icy surfaces due to a lack of warning signs in the area

  • Read how we helped Karen after she slipped in the supermarket
  • As a busy working mother when I slipped on a wet floor on my way into the supermarket and broke my hip I was left worrying about how I could support my family. I was unable to work for 2 months and had to spend 5 days in hospital following surgery.

    I contacted Injury Lawyers UK to discuss whether there was any grounds for me to make a claim for compensation to help alleviate the money worries that come with having to take 2 months off work. They told me it was likely I would be able to make a successful claim.

    I was now able to walk again, assisted with a stick. They arranged for me to attend physiotherapy sessions to build up the strength in my legs and waist that I had lost after being bed ridden for quite some time. This helped me recover much quicker than I was expecting and saw me return to work soon after the sessions started.

    They had contacted the supermarkets insurers and informed them I wanted to make a claim for compensation due to the supermarket being negligent. The supermarket initially denied they was at fault but luckily I had gathered the contact numbers of several independent witnesses. They was able to confirm the floor was being washed at the time but no wet floor signs had been displayed, making me think the area I was walking on was dry.

    The supermarket had no choice but to admit liability for the accident. Once the claim was settled I was very pleased with the £6,000 I received in compensation.

    The team at Injury Lawyers UK were wonderful throughout the whole claims process, always a friendly voice on the other end of the phone. They made sure I received the highest quality of care and took away the stress involved in having to take time off work by ensuring I received every penny I deserved.

    I can’t recommend the wonderful service Injury Lawyers UK provide more, they helped me and my family cope through difficult times. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with them.

There are a few exceptions to the three year claim limit which are:

  • Psychological trauma – if the accident caused a serious brain injury and is a loved one if making a claim on their behalf, then there is no time limit for making a compensation claim.
  • Manufacturing or design fault – If the equipment you were using had a fundamental defect, the time limit may be increased.
  • Overseas work accidents – Accidents that take place overseas may result in the time limit for making a claim being shorter depending on the circumstances.

  • Read how we helped Adam after his road traffic accident
  • When I was involved in a road traffic accident and I suffered what could have been life changing injuries I didn’t know where to turn. I was laid up at home after I had suffered broken bones in both of my legs.

    I was worried that by the time I was able to work again my cash reserves would have dried up and my family would be struggling to afford to put food on the table. Something which is every dads worst nightmare.

    A friend of mine suggested I call a personal injury solicitor and said he has previously used Injury Lawyers UK and was very impressed. The next day I called and spoke to Matthew Waterfield, he immediately reassured me that I was likely to have a successful claim.

    He swiftly arranged for me to have a private medical examination to establish how well I was recovering and what more could be done to aid me. He seemed to care about me and my family, he arranged a time to pay me a visit to meet in person.

    He informed me that it was likely I could receive an interim payment to help me make ends meet while I was still off work. He arranged extensive physiotherapy sessions with a brilliant doctor, I believe this physiotherapy is the reason I no longer have trouble walking or pains.

    Matthew had managed to provide enough evidence showing the blame lay with the third party and their insurers admitted full liability. Injury Lawyers UK successfully recovered £41,000 in compensation. This meant that I no longer had to worry about providing for my family.

    Without Matthew’s and Injury Lawyers UK support during a difficult period for my family the outcome could have been very difficult. I can’t begin to extend my gratitude for their team who did all they could to help me.

    I recommend anyone who finds themselves in the same situation as me to contact Injury Lawyers UK, they helped me overcome my injuries better than I thought I ever would.

  • The amount of time needed to establish liability

As a guide a road traffic accident that only leaves you with a minor injury such as whiplash is likely to be settled within a year. Whereas if you’ve suffered serious injuries in the accident the claim is likely to take over a year to settle fully, but we are often able to secure an interim payment before this date.

Accidents At Work Compensation Claims

Accidents at work can often be the most stressful injury, there’s worries that you may lose your job if you decide to make a claim for an injury you received, as a result of wrong doing by the business. The reality is that you shouldn’t have to worry about losing your job as the company will have insurance policies that protects the employees. This means that any compensation paid will be paid by the insurance company and not the business you’re employed by. Without a proper reason you cannot me dismissed from your job.

Suffered an injury or had an accident at work?

Accidents at work can occur for a wide range of different reasons. Whether it be other staff members failing to follow health and safety rules, or your employer failing to provide you with the correct personal protective equipment. If you’ve been injured in an accident at work in the last three years and it wasn’t your fault, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

What types of accidents can you claim for?

There is a huge list of different types of accidents that you can claim compensation for, in fact as long as the accident happened while you were in your place of work and it wasn’t your fault you should have a case. Some industries are however more prone to accidents than others, one of the most common industries we settle claims for is the construction industry, others include the warehousing industry and offices.

Injuries in the work place can be caused by many different factors but more often than not they occur due to incorrect training or lack of safety regulations.

No matter what industry you work in all employers have a ‘duty of care’ towards their employees meaning that they must take steps to ensure your working environment is safe for you and your colleagues to work in.

How long do you have to make a claim?

Accidents in the workplace can often cause serious injuries. This is because most working environments have a high potential for accidents when they’re not maintained, protective equipment hasn’t been supplied or staff are poorly trained.

Standard procedure limits you to three years from the date of the accident or diagnosis of the medical condition to make a claim for compensation. If you’re approaching this time limit you should not delay in getting in touch, the claim process can take a while to get started so its vital you act quickly.
There are a few exceptions to the three year claim limit which are:

  • Are you seeing a doctor or receiving medical treatment for an old injury or illness?
  • Have you been making repeat hospital visits to treat the same condition?
  • Have you taken time off work to recover from an injury or other condition?
  • Have your injuries or condition stopped you returning to work in the same role or working the same hours?
