Getting you back to work after an accident
Your employer is legally responsible for your safety at work, and why most likely, they will be covered by Employers Liability Insurance.
If you have been involved in an accident due to health and safety procedures not being followed, been injured due to faulty equipment, did not receive adequate training and sustained an injury or have an existing health condition that has been made worse due to your place of work, IMS Law can help. From the initial contact with our team, we will guide you through the whole process.
What we will do for you:
- Assess your claim for injury compensation
- Arrange a full examination by a suitable medical professional
- Arrange early Physiotherapy, Counselling or other treatments if necessary
- Aim to get you back to work
- Recover compensation for your injury and any financial losses suffered as a result of the accident. This could include loss of earnings, future loss of earnings, medication costs, travelling expenses, treatment costs, repair costs and also recovery for damaged items.
How cases are funded for an accident at work claim
At IMS Law our claims are funded on a No Win, No Fee basis, which is known as a ‘conditional fee agreement.’
With a No Win, No Fee agreement, there are no financial risks to you. You do not pay any upfront costs to start a claim and you will only be required to contribute towards your legal fees if your claim is successful.
In the event your claim is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay us anything.
If we are successful in securing compensation, the contribution you make is capped at 25% from the award you receive. At IMS Law we fully explain funding arrangements during our initial consultation.
How compensation is calculated
The amount you can claim will vary depending on your circumstances and the level of injuries you sustained. Awards depend on the length of time you suffered from injuries, the extent of the treatment you required and the impact the injuries had on your everyday life.
Our personal injury team will be able to give you a valuation of your claim once we have received completed medical evidence. Find out more about this process on our blog post here.
Making an accident at work claim
Adults have three years from the date of the event to make an accident at work claim. If a claim has not been settled or Court Proceedings have not been issued by the 3rd anniversary of the accident, a claim may be considered ‘time-barred’ leaving you ineligible for compensation.
