Workplace nerve damage compensation
Nerve damage can be very serious and in some cases can cause severe pain and even disability. If your nerve damage was caused by an accident at work, then we can help you get the compensation you need to start to move on with your life, after a potentially life-changing accident. As a team of solicitors with years of experience in work-related nerve injury, we will always aim to get the maximum amount of compensation for your situation. This is so you can access private medical treatment, rehabilitation and help in the home, if needed. Typically, compensation is calculated by taking into consideration several factors which include:
- The severity of the injury
- The treatment or rehabilitation that is needed and for how long
- Loss of earnings – this can include time taken off work, not being able to work again or having to change career due to the injury and this impacting on your earnings
- Loss of enjoyment
- Out of pocket expenses
Getting the right amount of compensation can make all the difference to your quality of life and it can help you move on from what has happened. Also, if appropriate, we can ask for an interim payment so you can access much-needed treatment whilst also helping you to stay financially afloat.
