How much can I claim?
Every workplace accident is different, each with its own set of legal challenges.
Personal injury claim amounts in England & Wales are based on a set of national guidelines called the Judicial College Guidelines. These guidelines 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.
In addition to compensation for your pain and suffering, Nigel Askew Solicitors can help you claim for “special damages”. Special damages include claims for loss of earnings as a result of not being able to work due to your injuries. They also take into account costs you may have incurred as a result of medical care and rehabilitation. In some cases, special damages can increase the value of a workplace accident claim by hundreds of thousands of pounds.
