COVID - 19 Supporting our Clients

Currently the UK is experiencing the worst viral pandemic in over 100 years. Normal life, by necessity has had to be placed on hold whilst, together, we battle this new threat to our prosperity and well being.

However, we at Lawyers4u are aware many of our clients have current ongoing legal proceedings and we wish to reassure and reconfirm our commitment to them.

Where legal proceedings are currently before the Courts we shall ensure that your interests are fully represented and that there will be no detrimental effect to your case because you are unable to attend scheduled hearings.

Further, new clients can continue to request our help in preparing new claims before the Court, be they as Claimant or Defendant.

Our professional legal teams are ready to help and we are in constant communication with the Courts so we are able to immediately advise our clients of any new developments.

At present the Courts are still allowing the filing of cases but, as to be expected, actual hearings are often conducted over the telephone.

However, in Civil Court Practice this is often the norm regardless. Civil Court hearings are primarily decided on the submitted statements of case and we at Lawyers4U pride ourselves on being amongst the forerunners in this drafting field.

So stay safe and be reassured that as an existing client we got you and if you have need of our services as a new client, we got you too.

Coronavirus Compensation Claims

COVID – 19: EMPLOYERS AND PUBLIC LIABILITY

Employers’ liability claims and public liability claims are both types of personal injury claim, however there are differences between them:

  • Employers’ Liability Claims are for employees who are either injured in accidents at work (or, as here, whose health has deteriorated as a consequence of poor working practices)

If you believe you contracted Coronavirus during the course of your regular employment practice, your employer may be liable to pay you compensation. Employers’ liability claims often occur when an employer breaches their ‘duty of care’. All employers owe their staff a duty of care, which means they have a legal obligation to create a safe working environment, especially during the Coronavirus outbreak.

  • Public Liability Claims are for people injured or hurt in a public place (such as clinics or hospitals, premises at which members of the public are expected to be).

If you believe you contracted Coronavirus during a scheduled appointment visit to a clinic (e.g. Doctors or dentist) or non Covid – 19 related hospital appointment, or at any other public venue – including shopping and retail outlets prior to March 23 – then you may be entitled to compensation from that practice, company or supervising local authority. Any place that is going to be used by members of the general public must be maintained to a safe standard. it doesn’t really matter where you are. If you are permitted to be there as a member of the public the business, organization or public body that oversees that area has a duty of care towards you. This means reasonable steps should be taken to safeguard your health.

WHAT CAN I CLAIM?

Lawyers4 was established in 2007 and we have a huge depth of experience in drafting successful civil court liability claims. We believe if we can get enough signature claimants who wish to claim Coronavirus compensation, then we can instruct barristers under Part 3 of the Civil Procedure Rules to consolidate those claims into what is known as a “class action” for the UK courts. We expect individual claims to be worth between £ 10,000 – £ 25,000 per claimant* However, this is a limited opportunity as once our subscription target is met, we shall withdraw this service.

WHAT DOES IT COST

All that is required form any person wishing to register a claim is a one-off fee of £ 99*. This fee will be used to pay the upfront legal costs of barristers and legal specialists who will draft advice and opinion that will form the basis of your claim. The fee is extremely low in comparison to usual barrister rates (which are usually several hundred pounds per hour), but we feel by combining individual claims into similar consolidated claims, we can achieve this. Further, no further fee will be taken from any award won for our clients. Lawyers4u will be compensated via the standard CPR protocols.

WHAT DO I DO?

Simply fill out the below questionnaire, sign where and how indicated and pay the fee. Once your details and fee have been received you will receive a notification your claim has been logged.

EXEMPTIONS

Unfortunately this service is not for claims by surviving relatives of victims of Coronavirus. In such cases you should seek consultation with your local authority for guidance. Nor, should retirees actively sign up for this action (although it is not forbidden) as government measures may be soon announced exempting retirees from Coronavirus compensation legal fees.
