What's the hurry in making claim?
By Law, you have 3 years to make a claim. Though making a claim whilst it is still fresh in people's minds really helps your personal injury claim. Often any witnesses who saw what happened are still employed. Accident books are still available. CCTV if used is still available. All of these things support your claim and are far easier to produce now rather than in 2 or 3 years time.
It is not just the injury. That in its self is bad enough, but there are the worry and stress about being able to pay your bills if you are unable to work. That is fine if you have a good employer who agrees to pay you full pay whilst you are off. Not so good if you are self-employed or your employer only pays SSP.
Making your claim right now won't mean it will pay out straight away. However, the sooner you start a personal injury claim. The sooner you will receive your no-win no-fee compensation payout.
How long will my claim take?
A personal injury claim for an accident at work can take 6-8 months for a minor injury to upwards of 5-6 years for a serious and complicated injury claim. However, in certain circumstances, you may be able to receive an interim payment (a lump sum even before you work accident claim has actually settled). You will need to discuss this directly with your local Surrey Solicitor. If agreed you will be paid this in advance of any compensation you receive.
But will I get into trouble with my employer if I claim against them?
From a legal standpoint, your employer cannot discipline you or sack you for making a personal injury claim. All employers are required to have employer liability insurance in place and whilst your claim is against your employer the insurer will pay. Allot will depend on the seriousness of your injury, along with how your employer deals with you. From a secondary point if they were negligent then making an injury claim for your work accident generally results in what caused your accident to be changed or improved. Making a personal injury claim can help prevent your fellow work colleagues being injured in a similar way.

Death and serious injuries have been massively reduced in the workplace over the last 20 years as a direct result of people who were injured like you making an injury claim. This has brought about changes in Health and Safety regulations that force employers into making proactive risk assessments and changes to prevent future injuries.
