Injury At Work Compensation

The amount of compensation you can claim following an injury in the workplace will depend on the seriousness of the injury, its impact on your life, government guidelines and precedents set by previously decided cases. In most cases, once liability has been established, a settlement will be negotiated by your personal injury solicitor. In addition to compensation you can also reclaim any expenditure or loss you have incurred or will have to incur such as medical bills, physiotherapy and loss of income.

If you have suffered a workplace injury there are some steps that you should follow that will help your personal injury solicitor when it comes to gathering evidence. This includes ensuring that the incident is recorded in your employer’s accident book, you take pictures of what happened and you make a note of the details of any witnesses. You should also make sure that you seek immediate medical attention.
