Typical Compensation Amounts For Work Accidents
Although we understand why you want to know how much compensation you can receive for your work accident, every compensation claim is unique. The amount that you receive will depend on the exact nature of your injuries and how severe an impact your work accident has had on your life.
Compensation claims can best be thought of in two parts. The first is there to make up for the pain and suffering you have endured, at least as far as this is possible. This follows national guidelines set down by the Judicial College. Under this framework, each injury has a range of compensation and payments for that injury are expected to fall somewhere within that range. The range can be very broad, however, to account for the vast individual differences in each injury.
The second, and often much larger, part of your compensation claim is to compensate you for any costs, expenses or losses associated with your work accident. The aim of compensation is to give you as close as possible to the same situation as you would have ad if your work accident had not occurred. This means that you are able to claim for any loss of earnings if you are unable to work as a result of your work accident, or even for the loss of the earnings you would have been likely to receive if your injuries mean that you are unable to return to your previous work. You may also be entitled to claim for additional medical support, the help of a carer if this has become necessary and even some modifications to your home or vehicle if they are necessary to allow you to resume the life you had previously.
Working with our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors means that you have the benefit of our years of experience, allowing us to claim for many expenses that you might not have realised could be included in your compensation claim. We want to get you the financial support you need to help get your life back on track.
Does It Take Long To Make A Work Accident Compensation Claim?
Each work accident compensation claim is unique, and it is not possible to give an exact answer as to how long each one will take. We realise that it is important to you that your claim is finished as quickly as possible, to ensure that you can put your work accident behind you with the financial support you need.
In cases where agreement is reached quickly, the entire case can be concluded in just a few weeks. This requires that the other party accepts liability almost immediately, as gathering evidence and demonstrating liability can add significantly to the duration of the case. It is only possible to complete a case in this period of time if it very straightforward, which usually means that the injuries are relatively minor as well. Cases involving smaller sums of money are often easier to resolve quickly, as the other party has less to gain from fierce negotiations.
If you are unlucky enough to have a very complicated case, for example if multiple people were to blame for what happened, or if your accident resulted in very serious injuries and there are complex negotiations as to the amount of compensation that is appropriate, your case can take significantly longer to be resolved. Cases that have to go to court are the longest compensation cases.
No Win No Fee Work Accident Claims
We want you to have access to the expert legal advice you need to have the best chance with your work accident compensation claim, without needing to put yourself at financial risk or making any up front payments. This is why we offer our services on a no win no fee basis to most of our clients.
With a no win no fee agreement, we are able to work on your behalf, without you having to make any payments to begin. We will only receive our payment once you get the compensation you deserve. If we are unable to secure this for you, you won’t owe anything. Importantly, our fees are set at a percentage of your compensation payment, meaning that you can rest assured that you will always receive the vast majority of the money awarded.
Under some circumstances, we are not able to offer our services on a no win no fee basis. If this is the case for your work accident, we will make sure that you know as soon as possible and we will suggest alternative funding options.

How Long Can I Delay Making A Work Accident Compensation Claim?
Compensation claims for injuries sustained as the result of an accident are expected to be made as soon as possible, and at the very least within 2 years of the event. Although the process only needs to be begun by this date, not completed, it is important that you get prompt legal advice from our personal injury solicitors today.
There are certain injuries or situations where there can be an advantage to waiting a little while before making your claim. This allows all of your symptoms to fully develop and means that you have a better idea of the full range of your injuries and how long you are taking to heal. It is still worth talking with our ekyword1 as soon as possible, however. This doesn’t start any formal process and it allows us the time to help you make the best decisions and to get you the compensation you deserve.
The Process Of Making A Work Accident Compensation Claim
Making any work accident personal injury claim for compensation follows the same, simple process.
Before making a work accident compensation claim, it can be important to get some legal advice and help. Our expert team of experienced personal injury claims solicitors are here 24 hours a day to make sure that you can access the support you need. Call us or claim online to give yourself the best possible chance of getting the compensation you need.
Our first step is to write to the person responsible for your work accident, explaining that you are making a personal injury compensation claim, that you consider them to be liable (the legal term for being to blame) and giving them a deadline by which to respond.
If the person at fault in your accident denies that they were to blame, we will collect all of the evidence we can find and present them with a strong case as to why they are liable. This can include pictures, videos and statements, as well as more technical and legal backing documents if needed. Once presented with this evidence, almost all employers will accept that they are liable.
As soon as liability has been agreed, it is time to decide how much compensation should be paid out. This is agreed through a process of negotiation. Throughout these negotiations, you remain in full control. We will inform you of every offer that is made, and give you our expert opinion as to whether the offer is fair or not, given the exact circumstances surrounding your accident. This means that you can be sure that the offer you accept is reasonable and fair, given your specific injuries and the way in which your injuries have impacted your life.
In the unusual situation that it is not possible to reach agreement, either because the other party refuses to accept that they are liable, or because it is not possible to find a compensation amount that both parties will accept, it may be necessary to go to court to resolve your personal injury compensation claim. This is very rare, and we will support you throughout the process if it does turn out to be necessary.

What Are The Requirements For Making A Work Accident Compensation Claim?
Many people are confused as to whether they are allowed to make a compensation claim. Compensation claims following a work accident are relatively simple, but there are a few things that must be true for you to be entitled to compensation.
The first essential requirement is that you must have sustained some kind of damage or loss as a result of a work accident that you have experienced. Narrowly avoiding injury can be alarming and worrying, but you are only able to claim compensation for the damage you have actually sustained.
The second thing that is required for you to make a compensation claim is that there must be someone else who was at fault in your work accident. They do not have to have caused it directly, but they must have been in some way responsible for keeping you safe. If your accident or injury occurred at work, this can be very easy to demonstrate, as your employer has a legal obligation t consider your health and safety and to take all appropriate steps to protect you.
The other person must also have been able to foresee or anticipate what has happened to you. This doesn’t mean that they must have actually known that it would happen, but that they could have considered it, if they had put sufficient thought and care into health and safety concerns.
The final consideration is what measures were taken to protect you. If no protective measures were put in place, your claim is highly likely to be successful. If they did take some steps to keep you safe, you may still be able to claim if these were not sufficient, given the degree of risk.
If you have suffered a work accident and believe that you fit these criteria, or if you are unsure and would like to discuss it further, call us or claim online today to arrange your free, no obligation consultation.
What Should I Do Following A Work Accident?
The most important thing after any work accident is to make sure that you are safe from any further harm and that you have access to the medical assistance you need. Only once you have made sure that this is sorted should you consider taking a few simple steps to help support your claim, if you feel that you are able to do so.
The simplest thing you can do to help your work accident compensation claim would be to write down everything you can remember from the time surrounding your work accident. This can include anything that happened prior to it but that might be relevant as well as details of the aftermath. The more details that you can write down now, the easier it will be for you to remember all of the important information if your case has to go to court.
It is also important that you try to get the names and contact details of anyone who witnessed your work accident. You are welcome to get them to write down what they have seen, if this is simple to arrange, but if we have their names and contact information, we are able to do this for you at a later date if needed.
Videos and photographs of the area in which your work accident took place can also be helpful, especially if they show any details which might have made your work accident more likely or which led to your injuries being more serious than they should have been. Only take photographs and videos if you can do so legally and safely. If you are unsure, we are more than happy to organise this for you.
