How much compensation can you claim?
Every work related personal injury claim is different and the amount of compensation you can expect to receive depends on a range of factors including the type of work related accident you have been involved in, the severity of your injuries, whether you have lost any earnings and been unable to work and how long your injuries take to recover.
All personal injury claims are made up of two main elements, the first being general damages and the second element being special damages.
General damages are based on a set of national guidelines called the Judicial College Guidelines and are for the pain and suffering you have sustained as a result of the accident. The maximum amount of general damages is for claims involving severe brain injury trauma and paralysis, and is £337,000.
Special damages, which take into account factors such as loss of past, present and future earnings means work related injury claims can sometimes amount to several millions of pounds.

How much it will cost to make a Work Accident Claim near Lincoln
We fund all of our work related claims for personal injury using “Conditional Fee Agreements”, which are also commonly referred to as “No Win No Fee” Agreements.
We do not require you to make any upfront payments to start your claim, so contact us today by calling 01507 or submit an online enquiry using the form on right of this page.
How long do work accidents take from start to finish?
All work related accident claims are different and the time it takes to successfully settle a claim depends on several key factors, including the severity of your injuries and the complexity of the legal issues surrounding your case.
For example a lifting injury at work, may in some straightforward cases take just 12 months to settle, whereas more serious and complex matters involving serious head and brain injuries may take several years to settle. (link manual handling claims + brain injuries)
Claims involving industrial disease and asbestos rely strongly on medical evidence and it is necessary to prove employer’s negligence. These types of claims must follow strict legal protocol and can take 3 or 4 years to reach a successful conclusion.
Every work accident claim is different but rest assured, our solicitors are experts and we will keep you updated throughout the claims process and offer the highest levels of advice and support.
