How much compensation can you claim?
We have over 20 years experience in helping the people of Lincolnshire claim compensation for serious workplace accidents and one of the most common questions we are asked is ‘how much compensation can I claim for my injuries?’.
This is a very difficult question to answer as every workplace accident is different, with different sets of circumstances surrounding each claim.
When calculating the value of a serious workplace accident claim, two main elements make up the basis of a claim, this being general damages and special damages.
Guidelines for general damages are set out by the Judicial College Guidelines, also commonly referred to as JCG guidelines. These guidelines are used to calculate how much compensation should be awarded for a specific injury. They are used as a benchmark so that we are able to work out how much compensation has been awarded to clients in similar claims in the past and thus value your particular claim.
The second element of a claim is referred to as special damages. These special damages include any financial loss suffered by a client as a result of the accident. For example, any past, present and future loss of earnings can be accounted for. These damages can be significant in value and are often only fully taken into account once it is clear how long a client takes to fully recover, if ever from their injuries.
Other financial aspects that are taken into account include medical and rehabilitation costs as well as any adaptations and changes which are required to a client’s home to cope with living with serious injuries.

How much compensation can you claim?
There are many different types of workplace accidents that our solicitors are able to offer expert claim advice on, which include:
- Construction and building site accidents
- Factory accidents
- Farm & Agricultural Accidents
- Manual handling accidents, including lifting and pulling
- Work related musculoskeletal injuries
- Dangerous or faulty equipment accidents
- Industrial injuries, including HAVS, VWF and NIHL
- Asbestos related disease
If you have been injured or developed a serious work related illness, you may be entitled to make a financial claim for compensation.
All employers owe their staff a duty of care and must do everything possible to prevent injury or illness. If they have fallen foul of safety procedures and risk assessments and have failed to provide a safe working environment for their staff, they may be deemed negligent.
