Calculating A Personal Injury Compensation Claim
It may surprise you to learn that, on average, most of the working population spend over one-third of our day centred around work. This includes both commuting to and from work and physically being in the workplace.
According to The Compensation Experts, workplace accidents are widespread across the UK, mainly due to the high number of people working in manufacturing. Warehouse environments, for example, can be hazardous and have a higher incidence of workers injuring themselves. Injuries resulting from heavy lifting or from incidents involving forklift trucks are far more frequent than they should be.
Common claim types relate to health and safety issues, inappropriate procedures and practices, accidents that could have been prevented if proper Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) was worn and faults with warehouse equipment, such as ladders and roll cages.
The top three regions of the UK with the most accidents at work are the South East with 20% of all cases, the North West with 14% and Yorkshire with 12%.
If you’ve been unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident, it can be difficult to know how to make a claim and how much it is worth.
Making a claim for a personal injury can also be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be.

How A Personal Injury Claim Is Calculated
As every injury is different, the amount of compensation can vary between cases due to the vast range of claim types and the different areas of the body that can be affected. Furthermore, you may be entitled to either General or Special damage compensation or both. General damages meaning physical harm and compensation for non-monetary issues. Special damages refer to monetary issues, such as lost wages and time off work, medical costs, etc. Other factors such as the extent of injuries, missed earnings and future losses are considered as well. The Compensation Experts have a compensation calculator available which allows potential claimants to select a region of the body and see how much compensation could be available for injuries in that area.
If you live in England or Wales and have suffered an injury in the last three years that was not your fault, you may be eligible to make a claim.
