Notwithstanding copious domestic and European Union legislation, statutes and safety regulations there are still many employers in Sheffield who fail to ensure the health and safety of their employees by compliance with the rules, often by taking short cuts with the intention of circumventing the law in order to save money. To make matters worse, once a claim is intimated by a work accident compensation solicitor on behalf of an employee, to an employer, all of the documentation is immediately passed over to the compulsory employers liability insurers many of whom refuse to admit liability at an early stage as a matter of policy in the hope that such denial will give them a stronger bargaining position when it comes to compensation negotiations.
Many insurers will attempt to deal directly with an injured Sheffield employee in the hope that they can bamboozle that potential claimant and settle for a sum that is less than market value. These unscrupulous insurers will arrange for their own medical evidence using a 'friendly' medical consultant (friendly to the insurers that is) and in most cases the claim will settle at well undervalue because of a lack of knowledge of claims procedures by the layman who has not had the benefit of advice from a work accident solicitor.
