Legal Exploding myths – "I can’t make a claim for injuries suffered in the accident at work because I am self-employed". Many people believe this is the case when it is far from the truth. Every case has to be judged on its own merits, but many times when someone believes that they cannot make a claim because they are self employed they are often wrong. The only person that is qualified to make this decision is a specialist personal injury solicitor, so if you have any doubt you should seek legal advice promptly. It is worth looking at the situations when self employed people might not make a claim in more detail. Whilst most people these days know that if they are injured in an accident at work there is a good possibility that they will be able to bring a claim for compensation against their employers, many self-employed people particularly those working on building sites or on projects where a number of outside, independent, contractors are working think that if they are injured during the course of their work there is no one against whom they can claim. In those circumstances where the injured person was in truth the author of his own misfortune there is unlikely to be a claim. Even however a very skilled and independent contractor can bring a claim if something went wrong on the site for which he was not responsible and over which he had no control. The Person Having Control may be responsible and that persons insurers may have to compensate the injured self-employed person. The notion of "control" in this context is complex and a matter of fact and of law. Needless to say anyone involved in such a situation showed seek early legal advice from a specialist personal injury solicitor. A successful claim in these circumstances can be the difference between having to live on savings or to claim limited state benefits during a period out of work and having your regular income replaced and rehabilitation and treatment arranged at the expense of the responsible partys insurers. In cases of serious injuries it can be the difference between living comfortably and going bankrupt. If you are self employed and have been injured in an accident at work, you may still be able to make a claim for compensation for your injuries and lost earnings. The important thing is to seek early legal advice from expert accident claim solicitors so that you can find out whether you can make a claim, and if you can, how much you can claim for.
