Do you need to know how much compensation for occupational disease you could receive?
You may have suffered an injury in an accident that was not your fault in the last three years, and be currently wondering how much compensation you could get for your injury.
It is also possible that you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease within the last three years and be wondering, ‘How much compensation for occupational disease is paid?’
Did you know that you can also claim personal injury compensation for an illness for which another person was responsible, such as food poisoning?
How much compensation for occupational disease or illness is paid?
It is difficult to answer this question whether it is for an illness or an injury, because there are so many variables to take account of when calculating the amount of compensation you might be awarded. There is a big difference between the minimum and maximum amounts of compensation you might receive. To answer the question more accurately, (although not precisely) a solicitor would need to study your medical reports, as well as research past payments of compensation for claims such as yours. They would also need to consult the guidelines for compensation set out by the Judicial Studies Board.
Making a personal injury claim
If you are thinking of making a personal injury compensation claim, then you would have to prove that your illness was in no way your fault, but that it was caused by negligence of another person. If you are suffering from an occupational illness, you have three years from the date of your diagnosis to make a compensation claim. Your illness may have been developing for much longer than this.
