Legislation that came into effect in 2013 changed the procedure for how low value Employers Liability and Public Liability injury claims are processed and these now require immediate notification.
The time scales within which a claim is to be managed, the way a claimant's claim is funded and the amount in costs which will be recoverable by the claimant from the defendant have all been amended. The changes impose much stricter timescales for the investigation and handling of Employers Liability and Public Liability Injury claims, therefore we will now need:
- A full record of any incident that may lead to a claim, with immediate notification.
You should collate photos, statements, training records, risk assessments, wages information and CCTV Records as relevant.
- You must contact us immediately if you receive a claim notification form.
