I’m worried about claiming against my employer
Work accidents are often due to poor health and safety procedures carried out by employers. If you have been injured as a result of these poor practices, then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation against your employer.
All employers must have employer’s liability insurance in place to protect them and staff if a claim is made against them. If you have been injured through no fault of your own and you make a claim against your employer, then the insurance policy will pay your compensation. That’s what employers liability insurance is for and you should not worry about making a claim.
Your employer is not allowed to discriminate against you should you have to make a claim.
Are there time limits to make a personal injury claim?
Yes, in the majority of personal injury claims there is a 3 year period in which claims are able to be made.
In some circumstance this 3 year limitation period differs.
If you are unsure of whether you can make a successful claim, please contact us today to discuss your personal circumstances.
How much compensation can I claim for?
The amount of compensation you can claim depends on the type of injuries you have sustained.
In addition to claiming compensation for pain and suffering, you are able to claim for loss of earnings, extra equipment and changes required to your home and medical care.
Nigel Askew Solicitors have many years experience in helping clients claim compensation for work related injuries and will guide you through the entire claim process, from start to finish.
How much will it cost to make a claim?
All of our claims for injury caused by defective or faulty equipment at work are dealt with on Conditional Fee Agreements. These agreements are commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee Agreement”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a percentage of the client’s compensation at the end of a successful claim. Law firms fees are mostly paid by the insurers of the losing party and no upfront fees are required to be paid by the client to get a claim up and running.
If you have any questions about how your claim will be funded then please contact us, we will be more than happy to discuss this with you.
