Areas of Law / Employment

I had an accident at work two years ago, cutting and bruising my face after tripping over loose cables. My solicitor filled in all the paperwork but I have now received a letter saying my employer has denied liability and my solicitors are dropping the case. They say it’s possible we would not win and I am free to take my papers elsewhere. I was astounded. Where do I go from here?

If the solicitor took on your case on a “no win, no fee” basis you will have to look carefully at the agreement you made. It’s possible they will have the option to drop the case if they feel it is no longer cost effective to pursue it, depending on the evidence available. If you intend going elsewhere you should act quickly, since there will be a three-year time limit.
