How Can I Pay For A Work Accident Compensation Claim?

We offer our clients full protection from legal costs. When your case is successful, you can expect the other side to pay all of your legal expenses.

We are also able to provide the following:

Legal expenses insurance

This is insurance cover that would pay all of the costs of your claim if it was not successful. If you win your case, a modest premium is paid from the sum you recover. This is a risk-free way to make a work accident compensation claim.

Legal Aid

You may be entitled to Legal Aid for your case and, if you are eligible, we will make the application for funding on your behalf. This will cover your legal fees whether or not your case succeeds, although if you win, the other side would still usually be expected to pay your costs.

Settling Your Case

Most cases are settled out of court and as part of the settlement, we will ensure that your employer’s insurance company covers all of your legal costs. If there are any costs that you might be liable for, we will always advise you of this before they are incurred.

We can discuss costs and how to fund your case at a free initial consultation, so if you have any questions, please give us a call and we will be happy to answer them.

How Much Compensation Will I Receive For a Work Accident?

If you are entitled to receive compensation following an accident at work caused by a breach of your employer’s duty of care towards you, you will receive two types of payments. The first, known as general damages, is to compensate you for the pain and suffering you have experienced as well as for any reduction in your quality of life.

The second type of payment is known as special damages and includes your expenses arising from the accident. This could include loss of earnings, the cost of therapy, healthcare not provided by the NHS, any special equipment you may need and the cost of ongoing assistance where necessary.

The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the severity of your accident and how long you are likely to be affected. Our solicitors can discuss your injuries with you and give you an idea of how much your payment could be.

Alternatively, you can fill in our Accident At Work Compensation Calculator Compensation Calculator which will give you an estimate of the sum you might receive.

If your injuries are fairly serious and you will not be at work for some time, we can request interim payments to support you until your claim is finalised.

At McGee Solicitors, we guarantee you will keep 100% of your work accident compensation payment.

“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.”

Is There A Time Limit For Bringing A Work Accident Claim For Compensation?

The time limit for bringing a personal injury claim for a work accident is generally three years from the date of the accident. Where you did not realise at the time that you had been injured, for example in the case of an industrial disease, the three years runs from the date on which you should have reasonably known that you had suffered an injury.
