Selby Accident at Work


If you have been injured as a result of an accident at work in Selby, you may be worried about making a personal injury claim. Here at the Accident Advice Helpline, we have the experience, expertise and the desire to help you pursue a claim against your employer. We understand that you may worry about giving evidence against your employer in court, but in reality, it is usually not necessary for us to take your claim through the courts.

Following the Pre-Action Protocol

When we start your Selby accident at work claim, we will follow a Pre-Action Protocol, which sets out the steps we must take before we issue your case in court. The Protocol is geared towards encouraging your employer agrees on a suitable compensation settlement through out of court negotiations. It involves sending a Letter of Claim to your employer and their insurance company, and providing them with 21 days in which to respond and a further three months in which to investigate your claim. At the end of this three-month period, your employer must either accept or deny responsibility for your accident.

If your employer accepts responsibility, we will enter into negotiations with them with the aim of settling your claim. If they deny responsibility, you may need to consider taking your claim through the courts.

Issuing your Selby accident at work claim in court

To start court proceedings, we will arrange for you to attend a medical examination so that a doctor can create a comprehensive medical report detailing all of your injuries. We will also put together a list of the money you have paid out as a result of your accident.

Once we have collected all the evidence necessary to prove the value of your claim, we will set a date for a hearing. During the hearing, a judge will decide whether your employer was at fault for your Selby accident at work. If the court rules in your favour, the judge will determine the size of your compensation settlement.
