How Much Could I Receive For My Work Accident?
There are many factors which will have a bearing on the amount of compensation you receive following a work accident but always remember this: thanks to our no win no fee system, every penny of the compensation you get will go straight to you.
The compensation you receive when making a personal injury claim following a workplace accident which wasn't your fault is intended to do several things. Although no amount of cash can ever truly make up for the stress, pain and anxiety, it will go some way toward helping you feel like you're on the road to recovery. On a more practical note, the compensation is intended to pay for things such as:
- Out of pocket expenses relating to the accident such as travel expenses.
- Any medical expenses.
- Loss of earnings.
- Long term detrimental effects to your social and personal life.
The amount you can expect to receive will be based on a calculation taking into effect the exact details of your injury and its effects both short and long term. This is why it's vital to provide as many details as you can regarding the precise details of your accident, using sources such as:
- An accident book.
- Any medical notes taken.
- Witness accounts.
- Previous accidents of a similar nature.
- Employer logs.
The court will use all of this evidence alongside a set table of compensation amounts relating to injuries which effect specific parts of the body. For example, someone who has suffered a minor head injury can expect to receive between £1,500 - £7,000, whilst a moderate injury to an elbow will generate compensation of £3,000 - £8,000.
As you can see, calculating the compensation for an accident claim is a precise process, which is why it's vital that you contact experts such as ourselves when you suffer from an accident at work, so that we can use our experience to make sure that you get, and keep, every penny that you deserve.
