If you have suffered an injury in a Denbighshire accident at work, you will need to seek expert legal advice from the team here at Accident Advice Helpline.
When you call our freephone helpline, our trained claims advisors will examine the circumstances surrounding your accident and help you determine whether you are eligible to make a 100% no win, no fee claim for compensation.
If you have been the victim of a negligent act on the part of your employer, there is a good chance that you have a realistic chance of succeeding with your claim. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can help you to follow the personal injury protocol, the steps you must take before you can start court proceedings against your employer, with the aim of persuading your employer to offer you compensation for the injuries and financial losses you have sustained.
The personal injury protocol for Denbighshire accident at work claims
We will start the personal injury protocol by sending a Letter of Claim to your employer. The letter will include sufficient detail to enable your employer to investigate your Denbighshire accident at work and understand the extent of your injuries.
Your employer may be responsible in more than one way, thus our Letter of Claim will contain a brief outline of the reasons why we believe your employer was at fault. It will also include an indication of any expenses or financial losses you have incurred.
The next step in the personal injury protocol requires your employer to take action. Your employer must acknowledge receipt of our Letter of Claim within 21 days, and state whether they accept liability for your accident at work within three months. If they do not respond, we will commence court proceedings on your behalf.
The final stages in the personal injury protocol depend on whether your employer accepts or denies liability for your Denbighshire accident at work. If they accept liability, we will enter into negotiations to secure full and fair compensation on your behalf. If they deny liability, they must provide us with a detailed explanation for their denial and forward any documents relevant to the issues raised in your claim. We may then instruct a court judge to rule on your case.
