We will discuss with you in detail the circumstances that led to your accident and will gather any evidence that you have retained. We then will need to send a detailed letter of claim to your employer outlining the accident circumstances and indicating why we hold them at fault for your accident. This is normally passed to their Employer’s Liability insurer who will begin liability investigations. Normally the insurance company will compensate you for your injuries and not your employer themselves. The Employers’ Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969 imposes a legal obligation on employers to take out and maintain insurance in respect of their employees claims arising from work related injuries.
The next step is to arrange a medical examination with a medical expert (who specialises in the types of injuries that you are suffering from) in order to confirm injuries resulting from the accident.
