Mr H of Barnsley suffered a fractured knee at work. He slipped on moss on the forecourt of his place at work. Mr H thought he may not be able to claim as the insurers for his employer went bust and had ceased trading.
Mr H contacted Richard Meggitt of ASD Solicitors who advised that any claim should be met by the Financial Compensation Services Authority.
The FCSA appointed an agent who admitted liability and made a reasonable offer following service of the medical evidence.
Richard Meggitt, Solicitor, part of the ASD serious injury team confirmed that even if an employer or an insurer goes out of business this does not mean a claimant will be prevented from making a claim.
