We have an envious track record of successfully obtaining compensation for employer liability claims on behalf of our clients. Employers have a legal obligation to protect employees from any risks that they may face at work. Employers also have a legal obligation to obtain employer liability insurance to cover any claims they may face by employees for accidents at work.
Common examples of accidents at work are:
- Injuries sustained from heavy lifting;
- Objects that have fallen and caused injuries such as serious head or brain trauma;
- Falling from ladders or scaffolding;
- Slips and trips;
- Defective machinery or equipment which has caused injury; and
- Using equipment which is unsuitable for the work that has been undertaken.
Should you think that you have an employer liability claim then please contact us on 01274 924200 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of our employer liability team will contact you.
If an accident occurs at work it is important that this is reported to your employer as soon as possible so that they can note this within their accident book.
If you need medical treatment as a result of the accident then you should keep a thorough record of your treatment.
It is important to contact us straight away whilst the details of the accident are still vivid in your mind. The details are of the utmost important when we bring a claim on your behalf.
Each case is different and our specialist solicitors will be able to advise you once you have called us. However, the claim for compensation includes compensation for general damage for pain, suffering and loss of amenity and also any special damages.
Many of our files are settled out of Court. However, in some instances then attendance at Court will be necessary but our specialist solicitors will guide you through the process.
The compensation will be paid by your employers employment liability insurance. There is a legal requirement for your employer to have obtained this.
Many of our cases are undertaken as “no win, no fee” and therefore there is no upfront cost to our clients. In some instances some of our clients have legal expenses insurance which may cover them. However, if you would like us to work on a no win no fee basis then we will obtain an insurance policy that is designed to protect you. Please call us for a more detailed explanation of the process.
