Suffering an injury at work can be very upsetting. Depending on the severity of your injury you can find yourself negatively affected for a few days, weeks, or months. Some individuals find themselves suffering life-changing injuries, which can leave them permanently disabled.
As well as the upset of suffering a physical injury, regardless of its severity, there is also the worry that comes with suffering an injury at work, both from your work directly and from the potential financial issues that can result.
There are so many questions to answer that it can easily become overwhelming. Will you be investigated for the accident? Could you be disciplined? Will you have to take time off from work to recover? How long will you be off work for? Will you be paid for the time you have to take off? If you are going to be paid for your time off will it be at your usual rate or will it be SSP? Could you lose your job because of this? What if you can’t get another job at the same level because of the injury? How will you pay your bills, and support your family?
If you believe that you may have been left a gift under a Will it is only natural to be curious as to what that gift is, or when you can expect to receive it. Your first port of call should be the executor, usually a family member or friend of the deceased. If you are on good terms they may tell you what was contained in the Will, although they might not be able to tell you when you can expect to receive this.

What Is No Win No Fee

This does not mean that you will pay nothing!
You do not have an indefinite period in which to bring a claim. To prevent individuals from being sued for events that transpired many years previously (when all evidence of these events is likely to be difficult to locate or in poor condition) legislators have set a time limit on how long you have to bring a claim.
