The amount of compensation you can claim for an accident at work will depend on a number of factors. These include the type of environment you work in and the kind of injury you have sustained. If you work in an industrial or construction setting, you are at greater risk of injuries like vibration white finger or asbestosis.
However, the majority of accidents in the workplace are due to slips and falls. These can happen anywhere are often minor. However, sometimes, they can lead to more severe or permanent injuries, leading to higher compensation amounts.
Below are the most common types of accidents and the related amounts of compensation to give you an idea of how much compensation for an accident at work you can expect.
These figures are only a guide. Any award depends on the severity of the injury, as well as a number of other factors. These include your age, life expectancy, whether or not a full recovery takes place and whether there is any permanent scarring or any psychological damage.
The above list is not exhaustive but gives a rough guide of how much compensation for an accident at work. Diseases like asbestosis are not sustained as a result of an accident. However, they are still injuries which come about as a result of employers not meeting safety obligations.
All claims for accidents at work need to be proved. Evidence will be needed to show that you have suffered an injury as a result of the fault of your employer or a fellow employee for whom your employer is responsible. To help your claim, note down details of your injury, medical appointments you have had in relation to your injury and the contact details of any witnesses. In most cases, you have 3 years from the date of the accident in which to make a claim.
