Guide to finding lawyers working for no win no fees in Newcastle upon Tyne – Part One
Employers take out an insurance policy and pay a premium (fee) to an insurance company every year or every month. This is very similar to the way in which you pay for your house insurance or for your car insurance. The insurance policy covers them for claims for compensation that are made against them by employees.
This happens when an employee gets injured in an accident that was the employer’s fault. The compensation is paid out of the insurance policy and is for the injury itself and for money that they have lost because they have been injured. In general, the more serious injuries get paid the higher levels of compensation. The process is sometimes referred to as a personal injury claim.
