How much is your accident at work claim worth?

The amount of compensation you will receive will depend on the type and extent of the injury or injuries you sustained during the accident. Here are some of the most common workplace injuries:

  • Crush injuries from faulty machinery
  • Soft tissue damage, sprains and fractures from slips, trips and falls
  • Serious injuries, including head injuries, from items falling overhead
  • Multiple injuries to the neck, back and limbs if struck by a vehicle

You can find out an estimate of how much compensation on average your injury is worth with our compensation calculator – but please note, this is only a guide.

Gathering evidence to support your accident at work claim

Where possible, Hampson Hughes Solicitors advise gathering evidence as soon as you can in support of your workplace accident claim:

  • Report your injury or illness to your employer and make sure they record it in the company’s accident book
  • Take photos of any injuries you sustained in the accident
  • Make a note of any visits to your GP or physiotherapist following the accident
  • Keep any documents relating to your medical care – prescription orders, receipts, x-rays etc.
  • Keep any letters from your employer evidencing lost working hours and income
  • Keep receipts for any other out of pocket expenses you have incurred as a result of your accident such as
    taxi fares etc.
