If you are looking for a specialist solicitor from Colmworth following an accident at work, we can help. Our in-house team of personal injury experts are available to negotiate with your employer or their legal representative to obtain compensation for your injury.
Employer negligence is a frequent cause of personal injury claims, with the resulting injuries ranging from life-threatening to cuts and bruises. Some people who contact us are unsure whether claiming against their employer is a good idea, however, fearing for their long-term employment, so let’s look at this issue in more depth to put your mind at rest.
Employer liability insurance policies
Anyone employing members of staff have a legal duty to take out employer liability insurance. This protects the business if an accident happens at work, and allows any compensation payouts to be made by the insurance company rather than the business itself.
This can be reassuring to some people who have suffered injury due to employer negligence, and helps them to make the right decision about claiming. Even if the injuries are only minor, your employer has a duty of care to you as their employee, and you deserve justice for what happened.
Are you eligible to claim with Accident Advice Helpline?
For your personal injury claim to be regarded as legitimate, you need to meet three main requirements:
- The claim must commence within three years of your accident
- You must not have been to blame for causing your injuries
- You should have received treatment for your injuries from a medical professional
Don’t worry if you are unsure whether or not you meet these criteria. Just give our friendly helpline advisors a call and they will be able to confirm the situation.
