Back Injury At Work Compensation – The Process
Your solicitor will discuss the case with you and assess whether you have grounds to make a claim. We then get in touch with your employer to see if they accept blame for the accident. If responsibility is accepted, we will try to arrange interim payments which will pay for medical care and ongoing expenses before your claim is settled. These interim payments will be deducted from your final compensation amount.
Independent medical professionals and health and safety experts may be consulted and will give feedback on why your accident happened and any long term health implications we may need to take into account.
Many cases are settled out of court and are quickly resolved, however if needs be the case may be taken to court. Often even if the case has a date made in court the case can still be settled before hand.
Throughout your case this is what you can expect from us:
Keep you informed of the progress of your claim
Confirm any receipt of documents sent by you
Always respond to queries in a timely manner
Ensure you are satisfied with your compensation
