    Sevenoaks Accident at Work

    It would be nice if receiving a fair compensation settlement for your Sevenoaks accident at work was easy. Negotiating a claim with your employer’s insurance company can be a long and stressful process, especially if your employer denies causing your accident, but if you involve a 100% no win, no fee solicitor from Accident Advice Helpline, we will keep watch over your claim and secure you the compensation you deserve in a timely manner. If your claim is relatively straightforward, we may be able to persuade your employer to resolve your claim in a matter of months rather than years.

    Proceeding with your Sevenoaks accident at work claim

    All accident at work claims proceed under the Pre-Action Protocol, which grants your employer and their insurer three months in which to provide their views on liability following receiving a Letter of Claim from your solicitor. If your employer readily admits liability, your solicitor will negotiate the settlement of your claim. If, on the other hand, they deny liability, you may need to instruct your solicitor to start court proceedings.

    Whether your employer admits or denies liability for your Sevenoaks accident at work, it is usually necessary for your solicitor to obtain medical evidence in the form of an expert report from a suitable specialist – for example, an orthopaedic surgeon in the case of a broken bone. To get the maximum benefit from the medical report, you will need to have recovered to such an extent that the specialist can rule on your prognosis with a reasonable degree of certainty.

    Once your solicitor has finalised your Sevenoaks accident at work claim, you will not be able to go back to your employer’s insurer and request more compensation, so your solicitor will avoid obtaining medical evidence at an early stage of your claim, as this will increase your risk of receiving an unreasonable compensation settlement.
