How much can I claim?
Every work accident claim is different, however compensation awards for personal injury claims are based on a set of national guidelines called the Judicial College Guidelines. These guideline are published for the assessment of general damages in personal injury cases.
The latest set of guidelines (the 15th edition) were published at the end of 2019. Some example guideline amounts for injuries are as follows:
- Serious back injury causing significant permanent impact – £59,120 to £70,490
- Serious shoulder injuries that cause a weakness of grip or injury that leads to restricted shoulder movement – £8,400 to £12,600
- Serious hand injury with significant loss of use of the hand – £23,110 to £49,350
- Serious neck injury involving fractures or damage to discs – £52,390 to £104,370
- Minor permanent damage to vision in one or both eyes – £18,880 to £31,320
Every injury is different and your claim may be worth more or less than these figures quoted. These guidelines are purely used as an estimate.
Claims are worth significantly more when “special damages” are factored in. Special damages include loss of earning claims and costs associated with long term care and rehabilitation. Special damages can increase the value of a claim by hundreds of thousands of pounds and in some cases, millions of pounds.

Free consultations to Boston clients
We are pleased to offer all of our Boston based clients a free initial consultation to discuss your potential claim.
During our call we will build a picture of your potential claim so will ask you in detail about your employment, how the accident happened, about the injuries you suffered and your recovery and whether you have sustained any financial loss as a result of the accident. We may also request to see your medical records, which we will request on your behalf, from your GP or consultant.
If after we have spoken to you and reviewed your medical records, we believe that your potential claim has good prospects of success then we will offer to represent you on a No Win No Fee basis.
What is a No Win No Fee Agreement?
We fund all of our compensation claims using Conditional Fee Agreements. These agreements are commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee agreement”.
To enable us to act on your behalf, we will ask that you enter into an agreement with us.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
Our fees are mostly paid by the insurers of the negligent party.
