Industrial Injury Claim

Employees who suffer personal injury or contract disease arising as a result of their employment may be entitled to financial compensation if it can be shown that the injury was caused by negligence or breach of statutory duty on the part of their employer. Liability may also fall on the employer if the injury was caused by a fellow worker as employers are required to provide competent employees and are vicariously for their acts or omissions.

Proving that the employer is liable is one aspect of the claim but it is also necessary to quantify the amount of compensation to which the claimant is entitled. There are various headings under which compensation may be payable such as :-

  1. Pain and suffering
  2. Permanent disability or disfigurement
  3. Loss of past or future earnings
  4. Medical, surgical or nursing expenses, prescription charges
  5. Other expenses incurred eg. transport
  6. Costs of paying for housework, gardening etc if the claimant can no longer carry them out
  7. Gratuitious assistance such as unpaid help from friends/family
  8. Loss of or damage to property.

Testimonials
Pedestrian run over by car
Mrs K was knocked over by a car that mounted the pavement, fracturing her tibia. Following extensive medical investigations organised by Cooks, it transpired that the accident brought forward the need for a knee replacement operation in the next 5-10 years. Cooks settled Mrs K’s claim for £28,750.00 she said:
"I am very pleased with the service I have received and would recommend Cookss to my friends. My claim was handled in a very professional manner and I was kept informed of it’s progress. Everyone I met or spoke to was helpful and considerate and I felt confident in their abilities. This was important to me at the time of my accident and later."
Mrs K from Streetly
