Work injury, how much compensation can I claim?
Incurring a work injury can be a very stressful experience. As well as dealing with your injuries and any resulting changes to your lifestyle, you may also be worried about any potential fall-out with your employer. Making a claim for compensation following a work injury is perfectly understandable – compensation is in place to protect you, and if your employer has failed in their duty of care to you, then it is your right to make a claim. But following a work injury how much compensation may you receive?
Your compensation amount will depend on a number of factors including the type and severity of your injury and any ongoing impact on your life; physically, emotionally and financially. This compensation will be based on the work injuries you’ve suffered.
Following a work injury how much compensation you receive will be variable, and the best way to gain an initial idea is to use a tool such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test. This will provide you with an estimated figure, dependent on the severity of your injuries.
Other factors that will be considered include your finances ,including loss of earnings due to a temporary or permanent inability to work, care costs, specialist treatment and medication. In some more severe cases, you may need equipment to help with your mobility (for example, if you have suffered a spinal injury), and modifications to your home may be required. Take note of all expenses you pay out as a direct result of your accident – this will provide useful evidence during your claim.
