    Westminster accident claim


    Making a Westminster accident claim can be a worrying and stressful experience, particularly if the person on the receiving end of your claim is your employer.

    Making a Westminster accident claim against your employer

    To recover damages from your employer, you will need to demonstrate the following:

    • That your accident resulted from the carelessness of your employer
    • That your accident caused you to suffer an injury
    • That your injury was the foreseeable consequence of your employer’s carelessness

    You will not have to prove these points beyond all doubt, but simply show that it is more likely than not that your employer was responsible for your accident.

    • Acquire medical evidence to show the extent of your injury and to establish your chances of making a full recovery
    • Acquire statements from any witnesses to your accident
    • Obtain copies of any reports made by the police, ambulance service and/or Health and Safety Executive (HSE)
    • Obtain reports from experienced professionals who may be able to support your claim, for example, rehabilitation specialists

    In addition to taking the time to understand the way in which your injury has affected your daily life, we will assist you in recouping the cost of the following losses and expenses:

    • Lost earnings and/or career opportunities
    • Professional care and assistance costs
    • Transport and travel costs
    • Specialist medical care costs

    We will also seek to obtain interim payments to ensure that you receive financial support throughout the course of your claim.

    Wherever possible, we will attempt to resolve your Westminster accident claim through negotiations with your employer’s insurance company, but if your employer refuses to negotiate a reasonable settlement out of court, we will let a judge decide whether you deserve to receive compensation for your employer’s carelessness.
