    Compensation Calculator: Workplace Injury & Accident Compensation

    The Accident At Work Compensation Calculator can help whether your injury has occurred at work or elsewhere.
    Grieves Solicitors specialise in all forms of Personal Injury Claim, including life-changing serious injuries and Work Accident Claims.

    One of the first questions people ask us about their claim is, “How much is my claim worth?" That’s why we developed the accident at work claim calculator. But of course, this is just a starting point.

    Our expert and friendly Personal Injury Solicitors will take all the necessary conditions into account before putting a more accurate compensation value on your claim.

    Our team at Grieves Solicitors specialise in Workplace Injury Compensation Claims. We have expert Personal Injury Lawyers who are experienced in handling substantial accident at work claims for clients across England and Wales.

    As a recognised injury claims specialist we can support your needs wherever you live in Wales, England.

    If you have been injured in a work accident that was not your fault, you may be able to make a claim for financial compensation, helping you to pay for ongoing medical care, rehabilitation or any bills incurred during the period spent out of work.

    Our solicitors have experience in dealing with cases that involve:

    Making your claim with Grieves Solicitors is straightforward. We will deal with all the correspondence which includes filing court proceedings if it is necessary.   Please note that most cases settle without the need to go to court.

    You can trust our strict client confidentiality policy and you will have no financial risk with our no-win-no-fee compensation claim agreements.

    We have found that many accidents at work are caused by avoidable situations such as lifting heavy objects or due to defective or dangerous equipment or lack of PPE.

    Your employer has a legal duty to make sure you are protected at your workplace and that the area in which you work is kept to a safe condition. If you have not received adequate training or safety equipment and consequently suffered an injury then you likely will have a claim for workplace compensation.

    Although no amount of money can truly compensate for your injuries, the compensation is there to make sure you are never out of pocket due to the incident. Fortunately, the law also provides for you to claim for future loss of earnings this is if you are unable to return to work and to cover any costs such as care or treatment in some serious cases.

    Key statistics regarding accidents at work:

    For the years 2018 - 2019

    • 1.4 million working people suffering from a work-related illness
    • 2,523 mesothelioma deaths due to past asbestos exposures (2017)
    • 147 workers killed at work (2018/19)
    • 555,000 injuries occurred at work according to the Labour Force Survey
    • 71,062 injuries to employees reported under RIDDOR
    • 30.7 million working days lost due to work-related illness and workplace injury
    • £15 billion estimated costs of injuries and ill health from current working conditions (2016/17)

    Histrocially, many non-fatal accidents at work have gone unreported. By the same token, injuries suffered by self-employed are also largely under-reported and therefore true figures are unknown.

    Generally, there is a declining pattern in the number of both serious injuries (including fatal injury) and minor accidents in the workplace.

    What are the worst sectors for injuries at work?

    The following work sectors have proven themselves as the most dangerous when assessing the number and likelihood of sustaining an injury at work:

    • Agriculture
    • Construction
    • Hospitality and Food Preparation
    • Logistics and Warehousing
    • Manufacturing
    • Retail

    Claiming work accident compensation

    The claim for personal injury compensation, whether your accident happened at work, in a public place or on private premises, is generally divided into two categories.

    General Damages compensate you for the pain and suffering you have sustained from your accident-related injuries and loss of amenity.

    In order for us to value your general damage claim, we will instruct a medical expert who will prepare a report on your accident-related injuries for your claim.

    The expert will investigate:

    • if any further treatment is required to assist with your recovery at this stage.
    • which of your current symptoms have been caused by the accident.
    • if any pre-existing conditions have been aggravated or brought forward by your accident.
    • the extent of the pain you have suffered as a result of this accident.
    • how much your life has been affected by this accident (i.e. any limitations on hobbies, leisure activities or holidays)
    • any sleep disturbances you are experiencing
    • any psychological or emotional problems you may have

    This fact finding investigation is instrumental in helping us to calculate accident at work compensation payouts.

    Depending on what the report says we may be able to advise you of the value of your general damage claim which will be assessed from the date of the accident to the date of recovery or estimated date of recovery if you have not yet recovered.

    Another major factor in accident at work compensation calculations are the more tangible financial losses you may have incurred

    These can be items such as:

    • loss of earnings
    • personal care
    • prescriptions
    • travel costs (i.e. to the hospital, GP or to see your Solicitor)
    • telephone bills
    • damage to clothing or other belongings
    • other reasonable expenses you incurred as a direct result of your accident

    Some of these items may seem trivial but they can mount up as the case progresses and show you just how much you have been inconvenienced as a direct result of your accident.

    What’s better than our accident at work compensation calculator?

    Our accident at work compensation calculator is designed to give you an idea of the amount you could expect to receive in general damages. However, it is no substitute for speaking to one of our experienced team of personal injury lawyers who will be in a better position to provide you with more information on the amount that you could expect to receive. There is more to building a comprehensive personal injury claim than putting a figure on the injury itself. This is where experience and a detailed knowledge of the law are vital.

    You can call us for free now on 0800 0747 644 or complete our contact form and a member of our expert team will be happy to speak with you to discuss any queries in detail with you.

    It will cost you nothing to make that call and there are no upfront charges if you decide to proceed with Grieves Solicitors. We take the majority of our accident at work cases on a no win no fee basis. If your claim is unsuccessful and you are not awarded any compensation for your injuries, then you will not have to worry about legal charges as you do not pay us a penny.

    How much compensation will you receive?

    The total amount of compensation you will receive will be a combination of general and special damages and will be calculated according to the individual circumstances of your case. General damages compensation awards differ according to the severity of your injury and how quickly you recover. Thus, a solicitor will need to gather more detailed information about your situation to be able to give you a more accurate idea of a potential settlement amount as well as advise you on how likely you will be to win, and how long it will take to receive your compensation.

    How do we calculate compensation for multiple injuries?

    Numerous injuries in an accident are generally defined as being injuries to different parts of the body that happen as a result of a single accident or neglectful act. They can have a catastrophic effect on the injured person’s life. The calculations for compensation on multiple injuries are determined on each case individually and will take into account the impact that the injuries have had altogether on your life. Multiple injury claims can be considerably more complex than single injuries and can be life-changing.
