What Compensation Am I Entitled To Receive After An Accident At Work?
If you have been injured at work because your employer breached their duty of care to you or because of someone’s negligence, you are entitled to be compensated. Compensation is split into general damages and special damages.
General damages include compensation for the pain and suffering your injuries have caused you as well as the effect of the injuries on your day-to-day quality of life.
Special damages are to compensate you for the financial losses caused by the accident. They are intended to make sure that you are not in a worse place financially because of what has happened. Special damages include loss of earnings, the cost of treatment or therapy not provided by the NHS, travel expenses to medical appointments and the ongoing cost of any care or help that you might need.
How Much Compensation Will I Receive For An Accident At Work?
The amount you will receive will depend on how serious your injuries are and how long the effects of the accident are likely to last. You can use our work accident claims calculator to obtain some idea of the sum that you might receive.
Alternatively, you can ring us and speak to one of our work accident solicitors who will be able to discuss your situation with you and give you an estimate of the payment you could receive, based on your injuries.
How Do I Make A Claim For Compensation For An Accident At Work?
You are advised to ask a solicitor to take on your claim as soon as possible after your accident occurs. If you ask us to represent you, we will start work straight away, recording the facts of the incident and contacting those involved to obtain statements. This ensures that none of the details is forgotten and that an accurate report is recorded.
We will then contact your employer’s insurance company and advise them that you will be making a work accident compensation claim in respect of your injuries. We will ask our medical experts to examine you and put together a report about how you have been affected.
If the insurance company agree that your employer was liable for the accident, then we will negotiate with them to agree on a sum to compensate you. If they do not admit liability or the amount offered is not enough, we will prepare your case for court. We will make sure that you have our guidance, advice and support throughout and that you are represented by a work accident claims expert.
Our personal injuries have extensive experience in negotiating settlements however, and we are usually able to settle cases without the need for a hearing.
How Long Does A Work Accident Compensation Claim Take?
The time taken to secure compensation for a work accident will depend on how bad your injuries are and how long you are likely to suffer from their effects. If your injuries are relatively minor, it is possible to settle a claim within a few months.
If your injuries are more severe or they are likely to have a lasting impact on your life, you will generally be advised to wait before agreeing on a compensation package to make sure that you are fully compensated for the future. We can request interim payments while your case is ongoing so that you have financial security.
We can discuss the likely time it will take to settle your claim if you ring us for a free initial consultation.
“Absolutely amazing. I could not believe that I received £8,500 in compensation. I came to Michael McGee on a whim and he and the team dealt with my case. I did not think I would get anything and I did not think a solicitor would even take the case on. My case was unusual and I was not sure if there was any point in pursuing it. I kept 100% of my compensation as well. I am really grateful to Michael, he provided a great service. I did not have to do anything and only visited the office a couple of times.”
