Check How Much Compensation You Could Receive

If that is where you have got to with your search for a lawyer who can support you in getting fair compensation for the impact your injury at work has had on your life, here are some questions to ask to help you choose the right option out of all those you’ve just been presented with:

What Are My Rights If I Had An Accident At Work?

First of all, it is important to understand that if you have had an accident at work and it was not entirely your fault, you have the legal right to make a claim for compensation.

UK law makes this very clear. This means your employer cannot fire you, discriminate against you, or treat you any differently if you tell them you intend to make a claim.

You also have other rights – such as the right to record your injury in the accident book your employer is obliged to keep – but the fact making a work accident compensation claim is your legal right is important to bear in mind.

“I was initially in two minds whether to go for a claim and had no experience in this area but from the start Helen was extremely helpful and reassuring.  Please pass my thanks on to Nathan, Nadine and Emma too for their great service and support.  I will certainly recommend you guys.  Thanks again Helen, I really appreciate it.”

Accident At Work Lawyers Near Me – Questions To Ask

1) Can You Get No-Win, No-Fee Payment Terms?

Although some people worry that something can’t be good if it contains the word “free”, work accident solicitors who offer “no-win, no-fee” payment terms are your best way to get the kind of legal expertise you need to succeed in your claim without paying big legal costs upfront.

In the combined three-quarters of a century of experience Grieves Solicitors has in personal injury claims, we have seen firms offer all kinds of complex loan agreements to their client (of course, these accrue interest on top). No-win, no-fee is inarguably better.

If you don’t have the money upfront to fund your claim (and sometimes even if you do), a “no win, no fee” arrangement (more properly called a Conditional Fee Agreement or CFA) ensures you can get the support you need. A CFA means:

  • When you win, your legal fees are paid out of your compensation
  • Your solicitor will help you get insurance that covers all extra costs
  • Even if you somehow don’t win, you still won’t pay anything

2) Can You Talk Directly With Your Solicitor?

Many law firms, especially larger ones, will hand over personal injury cases to paralegals or unqualified claims handlers.

For a niche firm like Grieves Solicitors though, that’s essentially the opposite of how we work. We make sure the service you get is direct from the highly experienced, qualified, and regulated solicitor who is dealing with your claim every step of the way.

Ideally, you will want a similar arrangement from whichever firm you end up contacting.

It is also generally a mistake to go through middlemen or agents working for claims management companies. They don’t tend to add much value for the extra costs they introduce.

3) Can You Get Clear, Straightforward Advice About Your Claim?

The solicitor you choose should make it easy to get any information or advice you might need about your claim even before you start.

A good way to judge this is to check if they offer a free, no-obligation chance to discuss your claim first. Most firms should offer this, but the reverse can take you by surprise.

You should also be able to get regular updates on the progress of your claim and any next steps or action you need to take. Being able to talk directly with one carefully chosen solicitor who is dealing with your claim is again useful here.

4) Can You See A Proven Record Of Specialist Experience?

Not every law firm specialises in personal injury law. To ensure you get the maximum possible compensation after a successful accident at work claim, you want to be sure yours do.

For example, Grieves Solicitors has 76 years of combined experience in this niche field of law and a record that shows the millions of pounds of compensation we have won for deserving clients.

If you are searching for “accident at work lawyers near me”, that is exactly the sort of level of experience you want to be keeping an eye out for.
