If you have been injured and have had to take time off, a work injury compensation payout could help you get back on your feet.
If you would like to find out what you could claim for, call us at Imperium Law on 0800 633 5730.
Thousands of workers suffer work related accidents or go on to develop work related illnesses each year. Accident and illness can be caused by faulty equipment, lack of training, lack of safety equipment and exposure to dangerous chemicals and substances.
If your accident was caused because your employer failed to keep you safe from harm, you are entitled to make a claim.
What can you can claim for?
Loss of earnings.
When claiming for a work related injury, any financial settlement will factor in loss of earnings to ensure you are fully compensated and are paid what you are due.

Depending on the extent of your injuries you could find yourself having to take time off work. If because of ill health you are forced to take an extended leave of absence, you could find yourself out of pocket because you will no longer be paid your full salary, instead you will receive sick pay.
Statutory sick pay is a minimum of £87.55 a week and is payable by your employer for 28 weeks. If you earn more than the sick pay you receive, you could be quickly out of pocket if you are off work for any length of time. When claiming compensation you can claim for the earnings you have lost.
Pain and suffering.
The pain, suffering and distress you have endured will be factored into any payout agreed.
Home help / assistance.
If you find you can no longer carry out tasks at home which you would have been able to do before your accident, could also receive compensation to pay for any help you now need.
On going medical care.
In addition you may also require compensation to cover any ongoing medical care you need to help you get back on your feet. You can also seek compensation for the expense you have incurred travelling to and from medical appointments.
Home adaptation or assistance.
In cases where injuries sustained have been significant and life changing, you can claim for any home modifications you need and for any ongoing day to day care that could be required.
We are ‘No Win-No Fee’ solicitors dedicated to winning the maximum payout possible.
Future loss of earnings.
If your accident has led to your permanently being unable to return to work, your compensation settlement will take into account any future earnings which are now lost to you.
