How much compensation will I get for a Crane Accident Injury?
The exact amount of compensation you will receive for your injury sustained in an accident involving a crane will be based on a number of factors and of course, every case is individual in its own way.
That being said, all injury claims are based on the evaluation of two elements to each claim:
- General Damages - to compensate for the loss of amenity, pain & suffering
- Special Damages - to compensate for financial losses or future costs incurred as a direct result of the injury
Our Accident at work Compensation Calculator will provide provisional guideline figures on how much compensation you may receive for the 'general damages' element of the final compensation award.
