Below are some questions that we’ve been asked by our clients. We thought they may be of interest to you.
Do I have to hire Stonehewer Moss Solicitors after the free initial consultation?
No. The initial free consultation is just that, but we hope that having advised you initially you will allow us to help you should you decide to pursue the matter with professional help.
Can my employers legally dismiss me if I make a claim following an accident at work?
No. If your accident occurred at your workplace your employer is not legally justified to dismiss you if you make a claim for compensation. If he does so you may well be able to claim for unfair dismissal.
It is important that you remember that employers are legally bound to take out insurance specifically to cover accidents at work.
Any compensation that you are awarded will be paid for from that insurance and will not have to be paid for by your employer(s).
How much does it cost to take someone to court?
This will depend entirely on the circumstance of the individual case. Costs for this can run quite high but you may be able to claim these back from the person you are taking to court.
In these cases it is advisable to seek professional advice before proceeding. We will be able to tell you whether or not you have a viable case before you take any action.
