Hi Folks,

 

Someone who was meant to be employed doing office work, was on site doing manual work to help out as asked by employer as they can do both.

 

Due to an accident, their hand was smashed and has had surgery and a finger has had to be removed and will be having more surgery etc.

 

They company have asked what amount they are looking for?

 

What is best practice in this situation please?

 

They are receiving full wages whilst off and been advised will deff be in office on return

 

thanks

my company has a schedule of payments for different kinds of injuries at work spelled out in the handbook. worth checking?

 

however I'd get a no win no fee solicitor involved.

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Are they in a union? If so, go through them and use the union solicitors. They normally get more than a no win, no fee one.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

My wife suffered an injury to her ring finger due to safety measures not being observed by the company. As a result they had to remove the last joint in the finger. She was paid out approximately £8500. She used her Union lawyers to progressed the claim but had to wait for about 2 years for it to be finalised. If they offer something close to this, take it as it saves a lot of agro.

Unions are self-seving entities, they aren't interested in individuals.

They will still help the union member when asked to. Especially for a personal injury case.

This could be a very serious injury with long term repercussions. I would strongly suggest a personal injury solicitor is the best person to advise. If more surgery is likely to be needed in future then it would probably be wise to wait for a while before agreeing a settlement anyway.
