    Lack of safety at work in Westminster


    An accident at work claim begins when you decide to take action against your employer to seek monetary damages for the losses they have caused you to sustain. Suffering an accident at work can be a traumatic affair, but filing a claim against your employer could help you to take the first step on the road to recovery, and can help ensure there is no more lack of safety at work in Westminster.

    Claiming for a lack of safety at work in Westminster

    Once you have decided to move forward with your compensation claim, you will need to call Accident Advice Helpline and hire an experienced personal injury lawyer to handle your case. Your lawyer will then follow the Pre-Action Protocol for Personal Injury Claims, a set of standards laid down by the court. The Protocol applies to all accident claims and it will provide you with the best possible chance of settling your case fairly and without court action.

    The requirements of the Pre-Action Protocol

    Under the Protocol, your lawyer must:

    • Send a letter of claim to your employer. This letter should include sufficient detail to allow your employer to investigate your claim of a lack of safety at work in Westminster.
    • Grant your employer 21 days to acknowledge receipt of the letter of claim and then a further three months to investigate your claim and provide a written response.
    • Calculate the value of your claim. This will usually involve gathering evidence of your losses and expenses and instructing a medical expert to report on the nature and severity of your injuries.
    • Enter into negotiations with your employer in an attempt to reach an agreeable compensation settlement.

    If your employer denies liability, or fails to agree to a suitable settlement, your lawyer may have no other choice but to take your case through the courts. This may sound like a daunting route to take, but you can rest assured that your lawyer will provide you with expert advice and guidance on a 100% no win, no fee basis every step of the way.

    Our 100% no win, no fee promise means that you can start your Westminster accident at work claim with no upfront payments or unexpected costs. If your claim is successful, we will work hard to ensure that you walk away with the maximum possible compensation settlement for the injuries you have sustained.
