If you have had an accident at work - even if your employers have gone into administration or liquidation - Thompsons Solicitors will still be able to pursue a claim for compensation on your behalf on a No Win No Fee basis.
Even if you know that your employers have no money and a lot of bad debt, Thompsons Solicitors will be able to assist you in claiming the compensation you are entitled to - at no extra cost to you. The protection and safety you ought to be afforded by your employers does not change simply because your the business or organisation is in financial difficulty.
This is because, by law, your employers must have employee liability insurance. So, even if they do not have the money to pay compensation, it is likely that they were covered by insurance during the time of your employment, meaning that it is still possible to claim on the policy.
Although in some cases it may take longer to claim because of difficulties in tracing a company's employee liability insurers, in the vast majority of cases is it is likely that there will be little or no difficulty in tracing the relevant insurer; in such cases proceeding with a claim is much the same as it would be in a case involving a solvent business.
As such, employers cannot avoid paying you compensation by placing their company into administration or liquidation, as we can make the claim against your employers and their insurers.
