    Cherwell accident at work

    Your employer has a responsibility to provide you with a safe working environment and a safe system of work. If they do not work hard to achieve this, and you suffer a Cherwell accident at work, you may have a valid reason to make a compensation claim through your employer’s insurance company.

    Employers’ liability insurance explained

    Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement for all employers under the Employers Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act. This insurance protects your employer in respect of their legal responsibility to provide you with compensation for accidents that arise during the course of your employment.

    Compensation for Cherwell accident at work claims

    If you make a successful claim against your employer, you will receive compensation in respect of the issues that arose from your Cherwell accident at work. Your compensation settlement will be split into two main awards: general damages, for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries, and special damages, for the financial losses you have encountered.

    The size of your compensation settlement may be decided through out of court negotiations with your employer’s insurance company or by a judge at a full court hearing. Your case will only go to court if your employer refuses to provide you with a suitable compensation settlement through out of court negotiations. Whilst guidelines are available on general damages awards, the exact level of compensation you will receive from your employer will depend on the circumstances of your case.

    Legal representation for personal injury claims

    It is essential to remember that the fact that you have suffered an injury in a Cherwell accident at work does not in itself provide you with a valid case for compensation. It is up to you, the victim, to prove that your employer, or a fellow employee, caused the accident that resulted in your injuries and/or financial losses. If you played a part in causing your accident, your employer may be able to call upon a defence of contributory negligence, which means that you will receive a reduced compensation settlement.
