Personal injury compensation claims

Concerns About Your Job

You should not be concerned about losing your job for making an accident at work claim against your employer as they cannot legally dismiss you.  Therefore if they did dismiss you on these grounds it could be deemed as unfair dismissal which could entitle you to compensation through employment law.

Your personal injury claim for an accident at work will be taken on a no win no fee basis and if you are successful it will be the losing party, your employers company’s insurers who will pay any compensation awarded, not your employer personally.  We will only receive payment if your claim is successful and our fees are usually paid in part or fully by the losing party.  Other costs incurred, such as court fees and fees for medical reports which are known as disbursements are also usually paid in full or part by the losing side.  You will however have to pay any costs that the court does not award the other party to pay.

If you are unsuccessful you will not be liable for our fees, however you will probably have to pay the costs of the successful party including their legal fees, disbursements.  It may be possible to obtain after the event insurance to protect you from this we will be able to advise you accordingly.
