How do I know if I can make an accident at work claim?

You can make a compensation claim for an accident at work if your employer has failed to keep you safe. This is dependent on several factors, including how hazardous your workplace is, and the specific laws that your employer must comply with.

If your employer has failed to keep you safe, for example, leaving out trip hazards, giving you faulty machinery or failing to carry out risk assessments, you may have suffered an injury. Our accident at work claims calculator can help you to see how much you could claim based on a successful personal injury case.

How does the accident at work calculator work?

Our accident at work compensation calculator is simple to use. It helps to calculate the compensation value of your case based on the severity of your injury. To get started, simply:

  1. Select the area of your body that was affected (for example, upper or lower body)
  2. Select the specific body part that was affected (you can do this multiple times for more than one injury)
  3. Select how serious your injury was – minor, moderate or severe.

How do you calculate an accident at work claim?

This injury compensation calculator should be used as a guideline only. Our specialist accident at work solicitors will be able to give you a much clearer picture of what your claim could be worth.

What our accident at work calculator includes

The injury compensation claim calculator works by analysing the seriousness of what we call ‘general damages’. These damages refer to the physical and mental trauma you have suffered. Depending on the area affected and the severity, your claim amount could vary.

For example, a claim for a spinal injury caused by a warehouse accident would result in a much larger settlement than a claim for a twisted ankle caused by a fall at work.

What our accident at work calculator doesn’t include

Please note that this calculator does not factor in ‘special damages’. These are damages beyond the injury itself – for example, financial loss through time off work.

Injuries in the workplace can be severe and may need significant time off work. You may also have to make adjustments to your home at a cost to you. Our calculator does not cover this, but our expert accident at work solicitors will be able to adjust your calculation to cover all impacts of the accident.

What are the accident at work claim figures based on?

These amounts are guideline figures only, and based on average accident at work claims figures awarded by judges. We update these figures regularly to reflect the latest cases.

Accident at work claims are partly calculated based on the Judicial Board Guidelines, which offer example claim amounts based on injuries to specific body parts. For example, with accident at work claims we might expect:

  • Neck and back injuries to range from £3,000 to £100,000 in compensation
  • Upper limb injuries to be worth as much as £30,000
  • Burns to be worth as much as £83,000 in compensation.
