    True or false? Work accident compensation payouts are usually around £5,000

    The aftermath of suffering a serious accident at work can be a confusing, daunting and stressful time. Injuries at work can be hugely damaging to confidence as well as physical prowess and it’s in this regard that the importance of work accident compensation as both a safety net and aid for recovery is emphasised.

    But how much is enough? As you’d expect, the size of your payout is dependent on a number of factors, but there is a tendency for the vast majority of claimants to underestimate just how much they ought to be awarded following their workplace accident.

    How much work accident compensation should I be receiving?

    Let’s say, for example, you have suffered a fractured arm as a result of an accident at work. The typical amount of compensation likely to be awarded in this instance is £6,000. However, many people go into such cases expecting accident compensation of less than £5,000.

    It’s a similar story with a broken leg. Here, the average pay out works out at a touch over £8,500. Again, most people would be happy with a settlement of £5,000 or even less.

    How can I avoid being short changed in my work accident compensation?
