Accident at Work Claim Calculator
The figures outlined below offer an indication of the recommended settlement amounts for the 'general damages' element of your claim (for the pain and suffering alone caused by your Accident at Work). These compensation values are published the Judicial College each year, providing clear guidelines to the Courts. These figures do not consider additional losses or damages that may be incurred, but that are directly associated with your accident and injury (i.e. 'special damages). Special Damages will likely increase the final value of your Accident at Work Claim.
