Industrial Injury Compensation Amounts
The Government has scales by which personal injury compensation payments can fall within. Because the scope of work injuries for industrial employees is so large, it’s not possible to say exactly how much industrial injury compensation you could be awarded until we have spoken to you.
We do try to give you an estimate as quickly as possible though, and once you have called us and given us details on your accident, we can usually give a rough idea on what payments you might likely receive.
Compensation awards are split into two different categories. You will be compensated for your pain and suffering, and the actual injury itself. You will also receive additional payments for expenses. Below is an example list of what that could cover:
- Medication and private medical expenses
- Travel costs
- Loss of earnings and wages
- Care and rehabilitation costs
All of these costs will also be projected into the future so you have the peace of mind that you can recover without the financial burden of having to pay for expensive care.
Had an Industrial Injury at Work?
Many workers and employees will naturally be anxious about starting litigation against an existing employer. Of course, this is a natural reaction and we understand why you might be worried. However, let us put your mind at rest.
When you make an industrial accident claim in Stockport, or anywhere else for that matter, you are protected by the law. You have personal injury legislation on your side, as well as the various trade unions within the UK.
It’s actually illegal for a business to discriminate against a worker who has make an industrial injury claim, and there are strict guidelines in place to help prevent this happening. Not only that, but any compensation award settlements don’t actually get paid for by your company.
Instead, all compensation awards will be paid out by the insurance company that covers the business you work for this eventuality. All businesses in Stockport and Manchester will have effective insurance policies, so when we win your case it won’t mean your employer will be financially burdened.
