We understand that coping with a back injury can be stressful enough, without putting yourself under further stress regarding a claim. Our solicitors aim to make the claims process as stress free as possible and deal with everything on your behalf.
During our initial phone consultation, we will ask you several questions about how your accident happened, who was to blame and the extent of your injuries.
We may also request to see your hospital or GP records, which we will obtain on your behalf once you have given us permission to do so. This medical information helps us decide whether we can assist you with a claim.
Once we have a detailed picture of your building site accident and the severity of your back injuries, if we believe there is a good chance of a successful claim, we may then offer to represent you on a No Win No Fee basis.
Common building site accidents
Over the last 20 years, our lawyers have advised clients on a wide range of different accidents that have taken place on building sites across the country.
Some of the most common back injury on a building site accidents involve:
- Falls from height including from ladders, roofs, scaffolding and platforms
- Being trapped by something collapsing or overturning, such as scaffolding, platforms or heavy plant
- Being struck by either a flying or falling object
- Back injuries caused by lifting, pushing or carrying heavy materials
If the accident that caused your back injury is not listed above do not worry, you still may be able to make a successful claim for compensation.
Call us on 01507 609027 and our back injury lawyers can offer you the expert advice you need to get your claim started today.
What is a No Win No Fee claim and how does it work?
Our back injury lawyers use Conditional Fee Agreements to fund all back injury claims. These agreements are commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee agreement”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all of the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
If you are worried about claiming against your employer or would like to start your No Win No Fee claim, call Nigel Askew Solicitors today on 01507 609027 to get your back injury claim started.
How much compensation can I claim for?
The amount of compensation you may expect to receive for your back injury depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries, whether you have been unable to work and if you require any long term care.
All successful work related back injury claims may include compensation for the following:
- Compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering
- Compensation for any lost earnings, past, present and future as a result of the accident
- Compensation for any adaptations that may be required to your home
- The cost associated with healthcare and rehabilitation as a result of your injuries
Depending on the severity of your injuries and your current and future financial losses, serious back injury claims can be valued between £25,000 and several hundred thousand pounds and in cases where someone has suffered life changing injuries, they can be valued in the millions.
