Frequently Asked Questions For Employers Liability

What type of workplace accident can I claim for?

There are many different workplace accidents you could be involved in, ranging from the very minor to the more serious. Some of the most common include slips, trips and falls, as well as accidents involving machinery or flawed working practices.

What happens if my employer denies liability?

This does not mean your case will automatically fail – we will do everything we can to obtain evidence to support your case and increase the chances of you recovering compensation.

If I still work for my employer, can I still make a employers liability claim?

You are entitled to bring a compensation claim, and your employer cannot dismiss you because of this. Your employer is legally required to have insurance to cover these sorts of claims.

Do I have to pay to make an employers liability claim?

We act for clients on a “No win, No fee” basis and as long as you follow our advice, and don’t mislead or exaggerate any aspect of your case, then you will not have to pay anything out of your pocket. If there is a risk that you may have to pay something from your compensation, we would tell you in advance.

What damages could I receive?

The amount of compensation you receive will be based on the medical evidence we obtain and the number of financial losses you have incurred. We have acted for clients where compensation has ranged from £1,000 to £100,000. Rest assured that we will do everything we can to try to recover as much compensation as possible for you.

What if my employer has gone bankrupt?

Even if the company is no longer in business, you can gain compensation as long as your employer was insured at the time of the incident, as the worker compensation insurance policy will still cover the claim.

I am employed as an agency worker; can I still claim?

Yes, you are entitled to make a claim no matter whether you are full-time, part-time, self-employed or an agency worker.
