What are workplace accident claims?
Workplace accident claims are when you need to make a claim against your employer for an accident you suffered at work causing you injury or pain, or an accident you suffered due to an act of neglect from your employer.
If you think you can prove one of the above points, our team of expert workplace accident lawyers will be able to assist you in pursuing a successful accident at work claim.
Who do you claim against in a workplace claim?
Then your workplace claim will be made against your employers’ insurance policy, this is compulsory for all employers to have to cover them for different eventualities including accidents that happen in the workplace. This type of cover has to be up to £5million which will mean the employer will not be paying the compensation themselves, instead the insurance company will.
It is common for employees to not want to pursue a workplace claim due them not wanting to offend the employer or for the business to be out of pocket. However, rest assured, the business will understand it isn’t personal.
Am I eligible to make a workplace accident claim?
If you have suffered an injury during the last 3 years of your employment whilst in your place of work, you might be entitled to make a workplace accident claim. Whether you were a full time, part time, an agency work or self-employed, you could still be eligible to make a workplace accident claim against your employer or sub-contractor.
If you aren’t quite sure if you are eligible or not our certified workplace injury lawyers will be able to assist you with your individual case and provide you with advice tailored to your situation.
Can I make a workplace claim even if the business has now shut down?
Yes, you can make a workplace claim even if the company has gone out of business. When this occurs we will apply to The Registrar of Companies to have it restored on your behalf.
If the company has gone into liquidation, administration or is being sold either before or during your claim you will be protected by legislation that will allow our expert workplace injury solicitors to continue with your claim.
