Accidents at Work

Wherever you work, your employer has a legal obligation to maintain certain
health and safety standards to minimise the risk of workplace accidents and must
try to ensure that you carry out your work in the safest way possible bearing in
mind the type of job that you do, the materials and equipment that you work with
and the tasks involved. Although Employers have insurance to cover the legal
fees against these accidents we understand why many people may be too
frightened to make a claim due to the worry of losing their job. Employers have
the duty to make sure the job their employees carry out is safe and they are not
legally allowed to terminate their contract. If that happens we may be able to
bring a claim for unfair dismissal. If you feel your employers have acted
negligently and you have suffered injury due to their lack of due care and
attention Claim Ok will help you to arrange your Accident at Work Claim for
compensation.

Road Traffic Accidents

Car accidents are stressful for all those involved, be it as a pedestrian, driver or
passenger even if you have not sustained serious injuries. It is important to seek
medical attention straight away, and also begin thinking about making a car
accident claim. If the accident was not your fault we’ll pursue your road traffic
accident claim without delay and guide you through the road traffic accident
process so you’re always up to date with what’s happening. We’ll work to ensure
that you receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to for your injuries.
We’ll take care of every detail of your road traffic accident claim. We’ll supply you
with a hire car while your own car is off the road. We’ll arrange repairs to your
vehicle. There’s no need to worry about road traffic claim costs as we’ll reclaim
the costs from the faulty party.

        Accidents in a Public place

All public and private organisations owe a duty of care to ensure all
visitors to premises are safe. Local Authorities are also under a duty to
ensure that pavements and public highways are in a safe condition for
public use. If you have fallen in a public place or on the street, you may
be able to claim.
o There are a number of things what can be useful in the event of an
accident:
1. Take pictures of the accident scene, the floor surface, your
clothing and shoes, any mats or rugs, poor signage etc. Also take
pictures of any visible injury.

2. Save the shoes that you were wearing and place them inside a
plastic bag and tape it shut so that any materials stuck to the
shoes will remain.
3. Take the names and contact details of any potential witness but
do not contact or speak to the witness again or attempt to get any
written statements from them as this should be left to your
solicitor.

                   Medical Negligence

The medical profession usually provide a caring service with a high standard of excellence.
However there are occasions when patients treated on the NHS or privately may be the victim
of a medical accident. If you, or a loved one, are the victim of medical negligence, incompetence
or carelessness then you may be entitled to claim compensation for injuries suffered. For free
advice contact the Injury Advice Bureau to arrange Your Claim for compensation.

CLAIM PROCESS

CLAIMOK TRIES TO MAKE THE CLAIMS PROCESS AS SMOOTH AS POSSIBLE, BUT THERE ARE A FEW STEPS IN THE CLAIMS PROCESS, WHICH OUR CLIENTS MUST GO THROUGH.

The best way to find out if you are eligible to make a claim is to give us a call on 0333 444 6449.

Or for a quick check, please answer the following three questions:

  1. Did your accident happen in the last three years?
  2. Was the accident someone else’s fault?
  3. Where you injured as a result of the accident?

If you said YES to all three questions, start filling our online form , or call us now on 0333 444 6449 and we can start your claim straight away.

If you are not sure who is at fault for the accident/injury – call CLAIMOK and we will guide you.

The amount of time an accident claim takes to reach settlement varies. It is virtually impossible to predict outset how long a claim will take to resolve. Each claim is different and mainly depends on how complicated the case is.

Three main factors to consider:

  • determining fault – if the third party denies their fault, solicitors will have to examine the available evidence, hence delays may occur
  • medical evidence – if the report from an independent medical expert doesn’t represent the real injuries incurred you might need to wait for another examination
  • the compensation amount – if defendant disagrees with the amount you are claiming, your solicitors might have to go to a court hearing

Whilst each claim is unique, the general settlement timeframes set out below can be used as a rough guide for each type of personal injury claim. However, they are based on the assumption that liability is admitted and healing from the injuries is expected within a reasonable amount of time:

Claim TypeProjected Case Settlement Time
Road Accident Claim4 – 9 months
Workplace Accident Claim6 – 9 months
Slip, Trip, Fall Claim6 – 9 months
Industrial Disease Claim12 – 18 months
Medical Negligence Claim18 – 36 months

The amount of compensation you can claim for your injury can vary considerably, simply because not every injury is the same.

There are two types of compensation Special Damages and General Damages.

Special Damages are usually fairly easy to calculate as you only need to calculate the loss in income for example lost wages, medical expenses, car repairs, insurance excess and others.

General Damages are more complicated as it is hard to determent the value of your injury, how much future earnings you may lose, what the future medical expenses or cost of care or rehabilitation could be. There are some guidelines on the expected compensation for certain types of injury.

Factors that are taken into account include:

  • Nature and severity of the injury
  • The rehabilitation time
  • Degree of any long-term disabilities suffered as a result
  • The psychological damage
  • Loss of earnings because of an injury

There are established guidelines for how much compensation for certain injuries you can get. More information can be found here

  • The circumstances in which accident took place (how, when and where the accident occurred)
  • The reason why you think the accident/injury was the defendant’s fault
  • Brief details of your injuries
  • Details of any time taken off work as a result of the accident

  • Report will be sent to you to check over for any possible mistakes.
  • If medical report is accurate and you will be happy with the content, it will be disclosed to the third party insurance as evidence in your compensation claim.

5. NEGOTIATIONS – ADMIT OR DENY LIABILITY

Defendants always try to reduce the pay-out sum; however, our solicitors will fight till the end to get the compensation you deserve. There are 3 possible outcomes:

  • Liability is admitted –  you won your claim. Solicitors will investigate how much compensation you are entitled to and negotiate the best possible pay out.
  • Liability is admitted, however Third Party disagrees with the compensation amount – solicitors may advise to go to court.
  • Liability is rejected – if Third Party denies fault and your case goes to court.

CLAIM PAY OUT

  • If you win your case, you will receive compensation (via cheque or bank transfer) within 6 weeks.
  • If you lost the case – you don’t have to pay anything, subject you were collaborating and the proceedings have not been struck out and the information provided by you was correct
