    Church Village accident at work


    The Health and Safety at Work Act requires your employer to protect your health, safety and welfare while you are at work. If your employer fails to fulfil their legal obligations under this Act, you will be able to take legal action against them. It is not always possible, or necessary, to file a claim against your employer, but it is advisable to obtain advice on your legal rights. Your initial consultation with the trained claims advisers here at Accident Advice Helpline will not cost you a penny, and we hope that it will allow you to make an informed decision about whether or not to pursue a no-win, no-fee claim for your Church Village accident at work incident through our work accident specialists.

    The Church Village accident at work claims procedure

    Once you have instructed us to file a Church Village accident at work claim on your behalf, we will send a Letter of Claim to your employer’s insurers. Under court rules, we must grant the insurer three months in which to investigate your claim and either admit or deny causing the accident that led to your injuries.

    If the insurer admits liability straight away, we will arrange for you to attend a medical examination with a specialist in your area. The instructed doctor will then produce a report that is legally binding. Once we have received the report, we will send you a copy and discuss its content with you to ensure that you are completely satisfied with its accuracy. Only then we will send it to the insurer and use it to negotiate the settlement of your claim.

    If the insurer denies liability, we will investigate the matter further and decide whether it is in your interests to proceed with your claim. If we determine that you have a reasonable chance of winning your claim, we will send you off for a medical examination and collect other evidence for use in court.

    The vast amount of the Church Village accident at work claims we handle settle out of court, without the need for a full hearing. If we are unable to secure you a fair compensation settlement through out of court negotiations, we will issue your claim in court. However, we will only do so following explaining the process to you and addressing all of your concerns.

    Understandably, you may worry that your employer may treat you unfairly for taking your claim through the courts. However, if you suffer ill treatment at the hands of your employer, you may be able to make a separate compensation claim through an employment lawyer.
