Such claims frequently relate to life changing or life threatening injuries for those involved and are usually costly to settle. Dealing with Employers’ Liabiity claims can also be time consuming with complex claims requiring detailed investigation and taking up to four and half years to conclude. This compares to the insurance norm of three years for other bodily injury claims.
Lycetts specialises in providing all aspects of insurance cover for the arboricultural and forestry industries through its Arbcover brand. Our Forestry and Tree Surgery team deals with a wide variety of claims, covering a range of situations. From the more usual claims to the tree contractor who pulled up at a set of traffic lights and had a wood chipper stolen off the back of their truck. Or the team of tree surgeons who suffered toxic burns as a result of the misidentification of a poisonous Japanese Lacquer tree.
