3 l Quick settlement - receive a cheque within ten working days once settlement is agreed l No cost to you - you can deal direct with us l 250 Consultation contribution, which can be used towards the cost of seeing a solicitor for confirmation that the offer made is appropriate l Your statutory rights remain unaffected so you can instruct a solicitor up to three years after the accident irrespective of where you ve got to in the Direct Settlement Scheme process Any disadvantages? Go direct for faster payment Key benefits No. You have a statutory right to consult a solicitor at any stage up to three years from the date of your accident. This remains your right throughout the process of dealing with us and afterwards. The benefit to us and your employer is in reducing legal costs and we have nothing to gain by reducing the compensation to which you are entitled. Direct Settlement Scheme Application Name: Telephone Number: With the offer of settlement we make, we will send you a cheque for 250 to contribute to the cost of obtaining a solicitor s advice should you choose to. This amount does not require repaying should you choose not to consult a solicitor. Date of Birth: NI Number: What is the Direct Settlement Scheme? Although you have a statutory right to consult with a solicitor we, your company s Employer s Liability insurers, operate a Direct Settlement Scheme, through which you can discuss compensation with the loss adjuster who investigated the accident you had at work. We believe that pursuing your claim through this Direct Settlement Scheme offers the quickest, most efficient way to recover compensation, but you may be concerned that discussing your claim directly with us without representation may leave you at a disadvantage. We assure you it will not. This scheme is not intended to reduce the amount of compensation you receive but to allow you the opportunity to recover the amount without the need for a solicitor, which will speed up payment to you. If you wish to discuss a direct settlement, please complete the attached form and post it to us. Upon receipt, we ll arrange for the loss adjuster to contact you directly. The best solution Pursuing compensation through this Direct Settlement Scheme offers the quickest, most efficient way to recover compensation Date of Accident: Employer s Name: A case study Having worked for the same company for ten years, Stan had an accident at work where he was hit by a forklift truck, which broke his arm. He had walked into the marked forklift truck lane by mistake. His employers paid his wages whilst he was absent but, whilst in hospital, he noticed an advert for a solicitor who would make a personal injury claim on his behalf. When he talked to the solicitor he was advised that there was no guarantee he would get his entire claim from his employer s insurers as he may have to pay up to 25% of his damages to make up the solicitor s fees shortfall. Despite being tempted by the solicitor s offer, Stan decided it was best to go for the Direct Settlement Scheme after all and cut out the solicitor s fees. He was happy that he did, as he received 100% of his settlement direct. What next? Location of Accident (if not at the above address): You will have received this leaflet from your employer, which means that, having investigated the circumstances of your accident, we believe that compensation will be payable. l I would like to discuss compensation for my accident at work on the above date. l I understand that I will be contacted by a loss adjuster acting on behalf of my employer s insurers. Please complete the form overleaf and post it, Freepost. Upon receipt we will ask the loss adjuster who investigated the circumstances of your accident to contact you. l I understand that I have a statutory right to consult a solicitor to pursue compensation on my behalf and my rights remain unaffected by making this application. He will discuss your current medical position and may ask you to see a doctor to provide a report to us. The amount of compensation to which you are entitled depends on the severity of your injuries and the medical prognosis.
