    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    True or false? I am entitled to more compensation if my injuries get worse?

    If you’ve had an accident at work, or you suffered injuries as a result of your job, you may be eligible for compensation.

    What is work accident compensation?

    Work accident compensation is designed to compensate people who have suffered illness or injury as a result of their working conditions, the nature of their work or circumstances, which caused them to experience work related injuries. Compensation is available in cases where the individual was not at fault for the accident or the subsequent injuries they developed.

    How do I know if I have a valid work illness claim?

    If you became ill at work or you suffered a work accident, which was not your fault, you may want to think about claiming compensation. If you are unable to work, you have had to take time off work or you are worried about future employment due to your health, compensation can help to relieve financial pressures and the potential burden of debt on your family.

    If you think you may have a case, visit Accident Advice Helpline’s website and complete the 30-second test. If you think these statements apply to you, you may be able to make a claim:

    • you had an accident at work
    • you developed injuries or an illness as a result of working
    • the accident was not your fault
    • the accident took place within the last 3 years
    • you have evidence (such as medical notes) to support the case

    Is it true that I get more work injury compensation if my injuries get worse?

    It is impossible to say how much compensation you are entitled to without viewing all the details of your individual case. But, the legal experts at Accident Advice Helpline will consider a number of factors when dealing with your case, including the severity of your injuries, the impact they have had on your day to day life and possible implications for the future, which may include unemployment and being unable to support dependents. Generally speaking, the more severe the injuries, the larger the payout, but the specifics of each claim are different and this is why it is so important to seek the advice and expertise of a personal injury lawyer from Accident Advice Helpline.

    There is a strict time limit in most cases and if your injuries get worse after the compensation amount has been agreed and the time limit has passed, it may be difficult to appeal for more.
