Will my Job be in Jeopardy?
We understand the concerns many people have over bringing compensation claims against their employers for office accidents, however employers are obliged to take out insurance cover in respect of an accident occurring and it is the insurers who pay the compensation. Nevertheless we always support our clients by taking a professional and sensitive role.
We are members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and Employment Lawyers Association, and we will aim to obtain your full compensation and rehabilitation entitlements in the shortest time possible whilst striving to maintain good relations with your employers and their representatives.
In the vast majority of cases employers understand that they are responsible for your reasonable safety at work, that you cannot live off Statutory Sick Pay and that where they are liable that this precisely the purpose for compulsory employers liability insurance . In some cases though we have found particularly in cases where the employee has less than one year’s serve and therefore only limited statutory protection against unfair dismissal that the employee is dismissed sometimes without any reason being given. It is therefore a difficult decision in some cases as to whether and if so when to bring a claim. There is a three year limitation period within which any court action must be commenced for a personal injury action but we would need to be instructed well before the three year limitation expiry in order to be able to accept your case and prepare it adequately.
