How do I make a claim?
In a case where your employer is responsible for an accident, the claim isn’t made against them but the business, where employers liability insurance should have been taken out to cover such matters. This compensation can help cover loss of wages, as well as unexpected expenses such as medical treatment, travel expenses, adaptations to the home and rehabilitation.
Our expert solicitors are on hand to guide you through the claims process, ensuring it goes as swiftly and stress free as possible.
