Employers are governed by a Statute to maintain a safe environment and may be liable for compensation if this duty of care has not been observed which leads to cause an injury to an employee. The accident at work injury claims compensation could include lost earnings and medical expenses. In case of an accident that wasn’t your fault, it is highly likely that an adequate working environment was not provided from the employer under Health & Safety laws. Please note that this does not affect your statutory right to make a compensation claim. If you are unable to work due to the injury at the workplace any dismissal will be regarded as an “unfair dismissal” which can be challenged.
How to Make a Claim?
The first thing you need to do is provide us with some of the basic information about you and your injury, this allows us to quickly allocate your case to one of our experienced claims partners. In order to assess your case, your allocated claims partners will give you a call to discuss your claim and establish the nature and severity of your injury. If a claim is established the claims company will recommend a specialist solicitor who is experienced in your injury type. If you decided to go ahead with making your claim the representing solicitors will typically charge you a success fee of 25% plus VAT from the amount recovered, although this will be subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be more or less than this. Termination fees may apply if you decide to cancel the case outside your statutory cooling off period for example hours worked on the file, time on telephone calls, letter, payment for DVLA search etc. You are not charged for the enquiry service we provide; we receive a fee from the claims partners which you are allocated. The recommending claims partners may receive a recommendation fee directly from your legal representative if you agree to proceed with your claim. You are not required to use our enquiry service and may instruct a solicitor on your own.
