When you’re at work, your employer owes you a duty of care. This means that they have a responsibility to take reasonably practicable steps to ensure your safety in the workplace.
If they breach this duty, and you’re injured as a result, you could be entitled to claim. Our work injury settlement calculator could give you an idea of how much you could receive.
It will ask you to input information about the accident, including who was at fault for the accident, where it took place and the injuries you sustained. It will also ask you to confirm whether you suffered any lost earnings, as you may be able to claim these back.
When you make a compensation, your settlement could be made up of up to two heads. In the table below is a list of injuries and their compensation brackets for general damages. General damages is the head of your claim that relates to the pain and suffering that your injuries have caused you.
How is compensation valued?
You may be wondering what your claim is worth. The Judicial College Guidelines are used by legal professionals to help value the general damages head of claims. They contain guideline compensation brackets for various injuries, some of which we have included in the table below.
|Brain and Head Injury||(a) Very Severe||No language function. Double incontinence. Full-time nursing care required.||£282,010 to £403,990|
|Chest Injuries||(b) Traumatic injury||Permanent impairment of function,|
reduced life expectancy.
|£65,740 to £100,670|
|Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder||(a)|
|Permanent effects in all aspects of life. Injured person will not function at the level they did pre-trauma.||£59,860 to £100,670|
|Back Injuries||(a) Severe (iii)||Disc lesions or fractures to discs. causing chronic conditions.||£38,780 to £69,730|
|Neck Injuries||(a) Severe (iii)||Severe damage to soft tissue, fractures or dislocations||£45,470 to
|Wrist Injuries||N/A||Loss of function in the wrist as a result of the injuries sustained||£47,620 to £59,860|
|Arm Injuries||(c) Less Severe Injury||Substantial degree of recovery will take place or be expected||£19,200 to £39,170
|Leg Injuries||(iv) Moderate||Severe crushing injuries or complicated fractures.||£27,760 to £39,200|

|Knee Injuries||(b) Moderate||Minor instability and possible mild future disability||£14,840 to £26,190|
You could also receive special damages. This head of the claim can compensate you for the financial impact an injury has had. For example, you could claim back loss of earnings if you had to take time off work. Your special damages could also account for travel costs to and from medical appointments, the cost of care or the cost of any medication you need to recover.
Our work injury settlement calculator could give you an assessment of how much you could receive in compensation. Alternatively, get in touch today to see if your claim is valid.
If your employer has been negligent, then you may be eligible to claim compensation for an injury you sustained as a result. Negligence is where an employer breaches the duty of care that they owe you.
The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 outlines the duty of care that all employers owe their workers. It states that they need to do everything practicable to reduce the risk of their workers being injured.
It’s important to note that you cannot claim just because an employer breached their duty of care. The breach must have led to an accident in which you were injured.
If you’ve been injured at work because of negligence, you could be entitled to claim. Why not use our work injury settlement calculator to see how much you could receive? If you have a valid claim, you can get in touch with one of our advisors to see if they could provide you with a solicitor from our panel.
There are a number of different ways that accidents at work causing injury could happen as the result of negligence. We’ve included some of these below:
- Poor housekeeping. Good housekeeping should be maintained in the workplace. Failure to do so could result in boxes and packing tape trailing across a walkway. This could result in a slip, trip or fall accident in which someone suffers a broken wrist.
- Lack of training. Your employer’s duty of care included providing free, relevant training that you need to do your job safely. If they fail to provide this, it could result in a manual handling incident in which you sustain a back injury like a broken back.
- Lack of appropriate protective equipment. You might need certain equipment to keep you safe while you’re in the workplace, for example, heat-resistant gloves or goggles. If you’re not given these, or if the equipment you’re provided is not fit for use, this could result in a burned hand injury.
For more information on the circumstances that might entitle you to make a claim, speak with an advisor today. They could advise you on how to use our work injury settlement calculator.
HSE Statistics For Work Injuries
Figures from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) show that:
- The most commonly injured site of injury in Britain in 2020/21 was the upper limb locations
- Of these, there were 5,181 injuries to one or more fingers or thumbs
- There were also 3,782 wrist injuries reported to the HSE in this timeframe
There are a number of different ways an injury could impact you. If you’re physically injured, you might not be able to do the things you usually do as you recover.
For example, you might have to take time off work as you recover from your injuries. If your injuries are particularly severe, for example, you’re left disabled as a result, you may be unable to return to work at all.
Furthermore, you may be unable to do the things you usually do once you have experienced your injury. For example, if you play football a lot in your spare time and you sustain a knee injury as a result, this might stop you from doing this as you recover.
The physical impact that the injury has on you can also cause a psychological reaction. For example, if your mobility is affected by your injury then you might be depressed at the impact this has on your independence. Psychological injuries can also be compensated when you make a claim.
For more information on the effect that a work injury could have on you, speak with our team. They can give you free legal advice on using our work injury settlement calculator.
Our accident at work compensation calculator is free to use and may be helpful when starting your personal injury claims process. You can use it to estimate the amount of compensation you could be entitled to.
Furthermore, this calculator can confirm your right to claim. It will consider the value of any loss of earnings you’ve experienced and include this in the valuation you’re offered.
However, this work injury settlement calculator will not take into account any other special damages, which could impact the value of your claim. For this reason, we recommend getting in touch with our team today. They’ll be able to discuss your injury and how it affected you at length, and give you an accurate assessment of how much your claim could be worth.
Our panel of solicitors can offer their services on a No Win No Fee basis, which can include a Conditional Fee Agreement. The benefit of this kind of agreement is that you will not pay upfront or ongoing costs during the claims process.
A small capped percentage of your compensation will be deducted by your solicitor if your claim is successful. If you lose your claim, then you won’t pay your solicitor for their services.
We will answer any of your questions regarding No Win No Fee agreements if you give us a call. If you have a valid claim, you could be connected with a No Win No Fee solicitor from our panel.
