    • Thanks DX.  I've ploughed through the pages and dug out what I feel are the relevant ones. Obviously, some of these are duplicates of what I've put up before.  Anyway, I would be hugely grateful if someone can look over and advise. Reading though other posts and on other cases that I've had help with from here, I don't think they have much of a case - given the weakness of much of their "evidence" - but obviously I would be grateful for some expert advice from the helpful souls on here.    Thank you.    B   Witness Oct19_redacted.pdf
    • You came here for advice, soem advice has been given adn you question the validity and source of that advice. We are all lay peopele, ie not giving professional advice but it is based on experience of the world and in some cases working in the field that advice is given on. Now you dont have to take our advice, we wont get the huff if you prefer to look elsewhere or do something else. when I asked what you think they would do with your NI number it is to prod you to think for yourself and question why they would ask for this when there is nothing legal they can do with the information so wouild you be wnating to give it to them knowing that they would want it to break the law if they processed it. Now you can take that up with the company at the top but TBH unless you want to spend money on a lawyer they will not answer the question or fob you off with some ridiculous answer anyway.   so for the moment read a lot about  RLP and similar situations to yours ans make particular note of what happened to the peopel in the end. You will find no threads theat ended by saying " thanks to you I gor sued by RLP and owe them a fortune". It isnt going to happen and the reasons why are explained in many threads. They rely on your feeling of guilt to get anywhere
    • you need to respond to their letter saying that you belive that you ahve been paid correctly ( or underpaid if you are due a small amount of accrued holiday pay etc) and demand that they show a full account of what you received, when and why and how they arrived at this figure. You then reconcile that with your P45 and use the figures to bat off any furhter demands if they still akke one. Come back if they dotn drop the matter and give us the full breakdown on hours worked, hourly rate, gross pay, tax paid  etc
    • @dx100ukI never got a response to my SAR from Octopus.   But I have just received a 'letter before court action' from one of their legal representatives, who have been "instructed to consider legal action against [me] if full payment, a settlement or your proposals to make suitable repayments arrangements are not received in the next 30 days."   I'm reading the threads now. Any advice on how to proceed? 
    • I would say let them do their worst, it will surely backfire on them. Now with restrictive contracts that stop you working fro competitors- these are notoriously vague so often not worth the paper they are written on. also they have to be fair so for example if there are only 2 companies in the UK that make a certain product your employer cant say you arent allowed to work for the other one. If you were for example trained as a hairdersser and you were going to open a salon in the next street to your ex employer then the restriction would apply if worded correctly. Dont panic about this, your new employer will be au fait with the situation and time spent worrying about a nastly letter will in their eyes take you eye off the ball so concentrate on the new job.

Industrial Injuries Benefit advice

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am considering applying for Industrial Injuries Benefit but I am finding it difficult to get any evidence of the accident I had.

The accident was way back in 1990 (February) and I am unsure if records are kep’t this long by an employer.

My GP has records of the treatment I received after the injury but nothing that states that it was a work place accident.

I already qualify for PIP (lower rate care & higher rate mobility) because of the injury I sustained and the effect it has on my daily life.

 

Would my claim be accepted without evidence to support it was an accident or would the benefits adjudicators just refuse the claim ?

 

Any advice greatly appreciated.

 

Nic

I could try that but the employer at the time was taken over by Wincanton about 6 Months later so I doubt that they will have anything going back as far as 1990.

They wont have any info on you that goes back 28 years, sar wouldn't produce anything of significance. If they did then they are breaking the law. Unreasonably holding personal data.

 

If it was an accident, and it sounds a serious one, did the health and safety get involved with an investigation?

I am on Industrial Injuries Dsablement Benefit (assesed at 40%) and have been since 1980. When you had you accident were you paid Sickness Benefit or Industrial Injuries Benefit

 

I ask as if it was Industrial were you not invited to attend a medical to assess the severity of the injury and was the HSE involved. If so what was the outcome? If you were awarded a weekly/2 weekly payment then you would have attended future medicals. If you were paid a one-off lump sum (that is assesed at 20% or less) then you will not be able to make a further claim

Was any union involved at the time?

They might have kept the documents.

I received no compensation or payment at the time, I spent a while on Company Sick Pay and the Union rep was not willing to pursue a claim maybe due to him wanting a Management job.

I was pretty naive back then about what should have happened after the accident but I am quite sure it was put into the accident book.

I am unsure if I received SSP at any point but subsequently had to leave the job due to time off.
