Do I have a valid claim against my employer?

The first thing that many clients want to know is do they have a valid compensation claim for their injury.

Once we have all of the relevant information about the accident from you along with what your employer is obliged to disclose to us, we will be able to advise you whether we think that you have a claim. If we think that you don’t, we will tell you.  

Equally, if we think that you have a strong case, we will fight on your behalf to make sure that you are fully compensated for your injury. Our personal injury team is always honest about the likelihood of your claim succeeding. 

‘I don’t want to sue my employer’

Some people worry that if they bring a personal injury claim for an accident at work, their employer will suffer financially. However, all responsible employers should have Employers Liability Insurance, which protects them in the event of compensation work claims and pays the settlement fee and other costs.

We often find that many employers are actually relieved that an employee is compensated, because they have been hurt within the workplace, and they can and should be compensated for that.

Facts and statistics about injuries at work

Over half a million people suffered an injury at work in 2022, though not all of these resulted in a personal injury compensation claim. During that time 135 people tragically died in workplace fatalities.

Workplace accidents can range from a fatality to serious injuries, and these can include things like crush injuries, serious brain injury or head injury, a fall that results in multiple fractures, serious burns or amputation. Trips, slips and falls can happen in almost any environment.

Sometimes an accident at work can be caused by defective equipment or failure to provide the right personal protective equipment. Machinery, tools and equipment used in the workplace should be in good working order and well-maintained to prevent accidents.

PR Scully specialist personal injury solicitors can assess the cause of your accident and whether it was due to negligence. Contact us on 0161 768 3175 to find out if you have a legal claim.

What about the cost of legal fees?

We know that many of our clients may not be able to afford legal fees for personal injury claims upfront. We offer the option of a conditional fee agreement or working on a ‘no win no fee’ basis.

No win no fee injury claims mean that we do all the work to make a work accident claim, and will only be paid if the case is successful. This reduces your financial risk when making a workplace accident claim in Manchester.

Sometimes, we do a lot of work towards claims but do not end up being paid with the no win no fee approach. If we do win but cannot recover all our fees, we ask clients to pay for some of our fees from their personal injury compensation settlement. Some firms call this a success fee.

Contact us online or call 0161 768 3175 to find out how to claim compensation.

Will I have to go to court?

Not all claims go to court. Most are settled with insurance companies without court proceedings needing to be issued. Having an experienced legal team at your side means you stand the best chance of getting fair compensation with the least stress and anxiety.

Many work compensation claims are settled out of court, but if necessary we can also begin court proceedings to ensure that you receive the right compensation for your workplace injury.

How much compensation could I win?

Factors like where and when the accident happened, the seriousness of the personal injury, and any employer negligence will have a bearing on your final settlement.

Additional factors are the financial losses that you have suffered as a result of your workplace accident. You may have incurred medical expenses and experienced loss of earnings, even if you’ve received statutory sick pay or have been able to claim benefits.

And finally, your personal injury compensation will take into account the physical and mental effects of your workplace injury.

Handling the personal injury claims process

We will likely need to access your medical records as part of the accident at work claim since medical evidence of your work injury will be required as the case proceeds. An independent medical assessment may be required.

Other evidence we gather as we investigate workplace accidents is entries in your employer’s accident book and witness statements from people who were there when the accident occurred.

Just because an accident has taken place at work, it does not necessarily follow that the employer is at fault. We have to be able to show that the employer has been negligent or at fault in some way.
