If you’ve been injured in an accident at work and you’ve decided to pursue compensation, there are various options open to you. The legal process of claiming compensation may seem complex and time consuming, but can provide the security that is missing from a third-party cash payout.

What happens if the guilty third party offers cash?
If you are claiming compensation due to negligence, there is a chance that the guilty party may offer cash at an early stage, rather than going through the legal process.
Often, an offer of cash shortens the process and removes speculation and interest, which enables employers to enjoy a lower profile. In this case, it is best to seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer, who can assess the intricacies of your individual case and offer guidance based on your individual situation.
They can evaluate the offer you have received against the amount of compensation you could claim if you chose to go ahead with a work illness claim. You should never feel pressured to accept an offer of cash if you are thinking about claiming compensation.
