If you have been injured at work in Coedpoeth, it is likely that you will have to deal with your employer’s insurance company on some level. Whether you have sustained a mild muscle sprain or a severe head injury, you must file a claim with your employer’s insurer to request compensation for all of your losses.
It is important to remember, however, that your employer’s insurer is not on your side. Their goal is to pay you as little money as possible. To accomplish that goal, they may do everything in their power to limit their liability for your accident at work.
How to protect your claim after being injured at work in Coedpoeth
You are legally required to assist your employer and their insurer in investigating your accident at work in Coedpoeth. However, you should not provide them with any official statements or admit fault at this time. Simply inform them about your accident and then call the Accident Advice Helpline for free, no-obligation advice on your next steps.
Our trained claims advisors will assess your case and provide you with the information and support you need to stay protected in all of your dealings with your employer and their insurer. In most cases, we will be able to provide you with access to a knowledgeable solicitor who will be able to deal directly with the insurer so that you do not have to.
It is also important that you avoid signing any paperwork from the insurer without first consulting your solicitor. If you inadvertently sign a legal document called a release of liability, you will lose your right to receive compensation from your employer. Similarly, you should not agree to any early settlement offers, regardless of your financial circumstances. In many cases, these early settlement offers will not adequately cover your losses, and may prevent you from receiving full and fair compensation at a later date.
