Health and safety ignored at work in Walsall – FAQs
The person I was employed with is no longer in business. Can I still make a claim?
In most cases yes, you can. Most employers are required by the law to insure against liability for injury to employees, so if your past employer had employer’s liability insurance, then you can make a claim with them. If your employer did not have this insurance, then making a claim will be more difficult, but it may still be possible.
I was partly to blame for my accident. Can I still claim?
Wait a minute – are you sure you were partly to blame? Because while employees have a duty of care for themselves, employers also have a duty of care. When you make a claim, your solicitor will build a case for you that proves as far as is reasonably possible that the employer is wholly to blame for the accident. So yes, you can still make a claim.
My accident at work in Walsall happened more than 3 years ago. Can I still make a claim?
Unfortunately, there is a 3 year limit on bringing a claim forward. If your injuries became clear more than 3 years ago then your case is time-barred. This may be able to be extended in the case of some industrial diseases, though, so it’s worth seeking advice on the same.
