As Law Society accredited Personal Injury Solicitors and experts in work injury claims, we will ensure that all your needs and those of your family are catered for and carefully considered when evaluating the potential value of your claim.

How Accidents at Work Compensation Calculation works?
Understandably, one of the first questions many people ask us is about the potential value of their Workplace Accident Claim. Calculating the levels of compensation for accidents at work is seldom straightforward and much depends on the details of the incident, the nature and severity of your injury, and the anticipated impact of the injury on your immediate and future life.
As with any form of personal injury claim, the Judicial College provides guidelines on compensation settlement values attached to the ‘general damages’ element of any Work Accident Compensation Claim. General damages seek to compensate injured parties for the physical pain and mental anguish caused by the injury itself and their value is determined by the type of injury sustained, its severity and the anticipated recovery time. As with any injury, there can be other additional knock-on effects of the injury such as prolonged periods away from work, these must also be considered before the final value of your Accident at Work Claim can be determined.
This initial assessment process is critical to ensuring you receive the appropriate levels of compensation and should not be rushed. As specialists in work injury claims, Shelden Davidson Solicitors will ensure that all essential circumstances are considered when assessing the value of your claim. In some instances, it can be sensible to allow the injured party time to recover or to take time to ensure the injury is assessed fully before valuing the claim. Once the full implications of your injury are evaluated, we then seek to secure the appropriate compensation settlement value from those liable for your injury. Where appropriate interim compensation payments can also be sought and made.
If you are in the unfortunate position of having suffered an injury in an accident at work that was not your fault, you may be entitled to claim financial compensation. Often this compensation may be needed to support you financially whilst you are unable to work and could help to pay for ongoing medical care, rehabilitation and any bills incurred whilst you recover.

What levels of compensation can you expect for being injured at work?
Your total work accident compensation award will be made up of both general damages and special damages. While general damages seek to compensate the injured party for the effects of the injury, special damages are designed to recompense the injured person for any financial losses sustained or any injury-related costs incurred.
General damages are determined by the guidelines set out by the Judicial College. These guidelines categorise injuries by type, severity, and anticipated recovery time, offering a bracketed range of potential compensation values for each injury category.
Our team of specialist solicitors will gather detailed information regarding the incident, your injuries, and your circumstances, enabling them to determine a more accurate idea of the potential settlement amount, as well as advising on the final amount you are likely to receive and what the timescales are for compensation.
The table below reflects Accident at Work Compensation & Work Injury Compensation Values as set out by the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG), and offers insight into the potential general damages element of your claim only.
