Workplace Injury Compensation Calculator

Below is a table of different compensation amounts corresponding to different injuries. The amounts listed align with the current edition of the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG), published in April 2022. Personal injury solicitors often use the JCG to help value the portion of your settlement known as general damages.

General damages aim to provide compensation for the physical harm and mental suffering you endure because of your injuries. The following table should only be used as a guideline.

Injury resulting in Brain Damage(b) Moderately Severe - You are left seriously disabled with a dependence on others and a need for constant care. Disabilities may be physical, such as limb paralysis. £219,070 - £282,010
Injury resulting in Brain Damage(e) Minor - Brain damage, if any, will be minimal. The amount receivable is affected by the following factors: (i) severity of initial injury, (ii) recovery period, (iii) extent of continuing symptoms and (iv) presence/absence of headaches. £2,210 - £12,770

Knee InjuriesModerate (i) - The knee has been dislocated, or the cartilage has been torn. This can result in minor instability, wasting and weakness. This also includes injuries which accelerate symptoms from a pre-existing condition.£14,840 - £26,190

Some claims may also result in special damages. These take into account any financial loss caused by your injuries. There are various costs you could claim back under special damages, such as loss of earnings, home adaptations, care costs, medical expenses and travel expenses.

However, you should keep hold of all financial records to prove any costs you claim back. 

As an alternative to the table above, you could use our workplace injury compensation calculator. It can provide you with an estimate of how much your claim is worth. However, you should only use the estimate you receive as a guide because several aspects are considered when valuing claims.

You could also call our team for a free valuation of your case.

What Is The Definition Of A Workplace Injury?

A workplace injury can be defined as an injury that occurs in the workplace or whilst performing duties related to your job. 

Your employer has a duty of care to take practical steps in order to remove or reduce the risks of any hazards that they are aware of. This duty of care is outlined in the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (HASAWA). 

Section 2 of HASAWA outlines the steps employers should take to minimise or reduce the risk of injury. If they don’t, it could mean they have breached their duty of care. 

In some cases, the injury you sustain could be a result of your employer’s failure to uphold the duty they owe you. This could lead to you making a claim. 

As such, you may find using a workplace injury compensation calculator helpful. For more information, call our team.

Examples Of An Accident Causing A Workplace Injury

There are various ways someone could sustain an injury at work. Below, we have listed some examples of workplace accidents:

  • You may have slipped on a puddle caused by a leak from the ceiling in the stock room. Despite your employer being aware of the leak, they may have failed to do anything to fix it. As a result, you may have sustained a severe brain injury in a slip, trip or fall
  • Your employer may have failed to carry out regular maintenance checks on a conveyor belt resulting in you sustaining multiple injuries, including a hand injury.
  • Insufficient training in manual handling from your employer may have resulted in you sustaining a shoulder injury.

If you have experienced a similar form of negligence, you may be eligible to claim for any harm you sustained as a result. Call our team for more information. They can also provide further guidance on how to use a workplace injury compensation calculator.

Latest Workplace Injury Statistics

Employees make self-reports to the Labour Force Survey (LFS.) These reports are then collated by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to provide workplace statistics.

According to the self-reports made by employees to the LFS, 441,000 working people sustained a non-fatal injury in 2020/21. Additionally, the reports showed that 102,000 took more than 7 days off from work due to their injuries.

Potential Impact Of Suffering A Workplace Injury

When suffering from a workplace injury, the potential consequences can be more than just your physical suffering.

Depending on the nature of your accident and the severity of your injury, you may suffer from psychological injuries as well. This could include conditions such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety or emotional distress. 

Your injury may also result in you needing to take time off of work, meaning you lose out on wages. Additionally, you may require domestic care while recovering from any injuries. This could incur financial losses.

You may wish to use a workplace injury compensation calculator to estimate how much you could claim back. However, they don’t always take into consideration the financial losses incurred as a result of your injuries.

Instead, you can call our team. They can discuss the specifics of your case and provide guidance on what costs you could claim back.
