Newton Mearns Accident At Work


Personal injury law grants you with the chance to claim compensation from your employer when you suffer an injury in a workplace accident that was not your fault. As your employer is legally required to have liability insurance in place, your employer’s insurance company will usually meet the cost of your compensation settlement.

The basic principle is that the more serious your injury, the more compensation you will be entitled to recover. However, if your employer’s insurance company is unwilling to pay out for your claim, its claims adjusters may use improper tactics to pressure you into accepting a compensation settlement that is less than you deserve.

Tactics claims adjusters may adopt to reduce the value of your claim

Claims adjusters may adopt a range of tactics to get you to settle your claim early and without negotiation. These include talking you out of seeking legal advice and dissuading you from obtaining medical evidence.

They are more likely to use unfair tactics if you were partly to blame for your Newton Mearns accident at work. In these circumstances, you will not be able to receive full compensation from your employer. Rather, you will receive a reduced compensation settlement that takes into account the degree of your own carelessness. They will use this to their advantage and try to pull the wool over your eyes by offering you a fraction of the compensation you deserve, all because they realise that you are likely to be concerned about the impact your own liability will have on the success of your claim.

In addition, they may persuade you to sign a full and final settlement agreement that will prevent you from reopening your case and trying to negotiate a further settlement in the future.
