If you’ve recently been injured in an accident at work, you may feel reluctant to pursue an compensation claim against your employer. You may worry about the prospect of damaging your working relationship with your employer. You may fear putting your work colleagues out of a job. However, it’s important to realise that your employer will have taken out insurance to protect against the cost of accident claims. It’s their insurance company who will pay for your claim. Thus you’ve nothing to fear if you seek help from Erskine accident claims lawyers.
We will handle your claim with care and sensitivity
The process of claiming compensation from your employer is simple and confidential. Unless you wish to disclose the details of your claim, your colleagues will never learn about it. They certainly won’t lose their jobs because of your claim. That means you don’t need to be concerned about your colleagues.
When you contact us about your claim, one of our Erskine accident claims lawyers will issue a Letter of Claim to your employer’s insurance company. It will be the insurance company who will look into your claim. Clearly, the insurance company will ask your employer to describe the events leading up to your accident. Therefore, your employer will be aware that you’ve made a claim. However, your employer can’t treat you unfairly or dismiss you for making a claim.
We will ensure your employer takes action to prevent future accidents at work
The point of claiming compensation from your employer is to receive money for your injuries and losses. However, your compensation claim may also have other benefits. Suppose, for example, your accident resulted from your employer’s failure to follow health and safety guidelines. In that situation, your claim could force your employer to implement policies that make the workplace safer for you and your colleagues.
Erskine accident claims lawyers will take the stress out of claiming compensation
At Accident Advice Helpline, we believe in simplifying the claims process as far as we possibly can. We can’t guarantee that you’ll win your accident claim. However, we do provide a 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ service. This means that we won’t ask you to pay for your claim upfront. You’ll only be expected to pay our fees if we manage to win the claim on your behalf.
We’ll always endeavour to settle your case through negotiations with your employer’s insurance company. However, if your employer fiercely contests your claim, we may need to take your case through the courts. If this happened, we’d provide you with all the support necessary for you to proceed with your claim with minimum stress and inconvenience.
