Are you looking to claim compensation for a lifting injury on the Isles of Scilly? Well, you may have already started to think long and hard about the amount of compensation that you may be entitled to claim. On this page, we are going to take a very quick look at how Accident Advice Helpline determines compensation entitlement.
We offer no guarantees
Sadly, there is no way in which we are able to guarantee with 100% accuracy the amount of compensation that you may be able to claim for your lifting injury on the Isles of Scilly. This is because every single case is different. Yes, when we are coming up with a rough figure for compensation entitlement we will take a look at cases with similar facts to yours that we have dealt with in the past, however, these will only give us a rough figure.
The main facts of the cases may be similar, but there will always be small nuances which could have a drastic impact on compensation entitlement.
Who is compensation claimed from?
This will be dependent on who is actually at fault for your injuries. The vast majority of lifting injuries are actually caused in the workplace. Therefore, it is likely that we will be claiming compensation directly from the insurance company that provides the employee’s insurance for your employer.
When it comes to compensation entitlement for your lifting injury, the bulk of the compensation that you obtain will come under a heading known as ‘general compensation’. This compensation is there to cover you for the inconvenience of your injuries.
General compensation is directly related to the severity of your lifting injuries and how much of an impact they have on your day to day life. The more severe your injuries are, the more compensation you will be able to claim.
If you wish to claim compensation through Accident Advice Helpline, you will need to provide us with a medical report. If you are unable to do this, we will be missing one of the most important pieces of evidence in your compensation claim. Not only will the medical report be used to determine compensation entitlement, it will also be used to prove that you actually were injured.
Financial loss compensation
In addition to this, you may also be able to claim a small amount of compensation for financial losses. For example; if you have had to take time away from work in order to recover from your injuries, you may be able to claim back lost income.
