My partner recently claimed against hes previous employer for damages.

he was at work when he was hit onthe shoulder with a heavy door by another employee,this has been confirmed and the insurance company has accepted liability.

 

His recent visit to a specialist(for the insurance purpose) claimed there was permanant muscle damage and degradation to his shoulder muscle.

 

He has only had a part time job since(working on the computer in the house for my little bro at 3hrs a day)as he is on long term incapacity.

 

how much it the payment likely to be and how much should we hold out for?

I don't know, but I do know there is a very specific scale (someone told me the name, but I forgot) according to injury, possible sequels, etc...

I know a super personal injuries solicitor in london who is like a Rotweiler with these things.

I don't think that he could handle it long distance, though.

You could call Govan law centre - linked in helpful organisations onthis site.

 

Whatever, get yourself a specialist PI practiotioner and you will quadruple your damages.

You are talking about many many thousands if handled correctly

Too right BankFodder.

 

Get a solicitor who specialises in Personal Injury claims. I contested the award for a back injury due to a rear car shunt and too a PI sol with me to the court and got 3 times as much as the original offer.

 

Anyway....

 

There is some advise regarding injury claims and compensation from a website I found for you...

 

How much is my personal injury compensation claim worth?

 

This is another of those unanswerable questions.

 

Any competent professional organisation cannot feasibly value a personal injury claim without medical evidence / records to support their view. If you are currently represented by a solicitor then you should seek advice from them directly.

 

 

 

What we can do is provide a summary of common awards that illustrate the kind of compensation payments that are made to our claimants - specifically for pain & suffering.

 

 

 

The figures below are not etched in stone and merely serve to provide you with a rough idea of the compensation you may be entitled to.

 

 

 

INJURY RECOVERY PERIOD COMPENSATION AWARD

Whiplash claim 1 month £750

Whiplash claim 12 months £2500

Whiplash claim 24 MONTHS £3700

Whiplash claim Permanent injury £8000-10000

Fractured collarbone 12- 18 months £3000

Fractured wrist 2 years £5000

Fractured sternum 2 years £3000

PTSD / Shock 2 years £3500

Simple leg fracture 2 years £5000

 

As we have stated before - all accident claims are different and involve consideration of the various facts involved regarding any personal injury.

 

 

 

Before settling any accident claim you should try to ensure that medical evidence is in place and that the full facts are available for both sides to consider.

 

 

As you can see they say £3k for the collarbone injury, but we do not know the facts surrounding that injury.

 

Suggest you find a good PI Sol in your area, ask for a free 15 minute consultation (lots of sols offer this now if they think there is a chance of a good case for them) and take it from there.
