Calculating injuries compensation amounts can be simple with our help
Are you sitting at home, off work and injured? Perhaps you have a badly sprained wrist, all strapped up. Your job involves data entry and you can’t type, or work the mouse, so you have to wait it out a few days until you are fit to go back to work. Maybe your injury needs longer to heal before you can return to your job. The trouble is, you are an agency worker and you can’t afford the time off. You’ve bills to pay, and you need to eat. So, you’ve been thinking you only have a sprained wrist and maybe it’s not worth making a claim. You’re not entirely sure you can prove your last employer’s negligence in any case. You could get a bad name with the agency, all for the sake of a few quid. Perhaps it would be better not to claim? Wrong.
Would injuries compensation make it worth my while to claim?
Did you know that seven out of ten non-fault accident injury victims are not aware of their rights to claim, or of the injuries compensation amounts relevant to them? Seven out of ten people don’t bother to claim what is rightfully theirs. Our patron, Esther Rantzen, feels quite bad about that. She’s long been a champion of consumer rights in Britain, and especially sticking up for the little guy. Take a look at her video on the main site and see what she has to say about it.
Typical ways of calculating injuries compensation amounts
Our victim with the sprained wrist above could be eligible for anything from a thousand pounds to more, depending on the type of injury, or if it is a work-related injury built up over time. Whiplash injury commonly carries a pay-out of a few hundred for simple whiplash, but if the injury persists and there are complications it could be worth more. Of course, these are estimated figures, but you can use our compensation calculator to find out what your claim could be worth.
