Radial Nerve Damage at Work

How much compensation for radial nerve damage at work am I entitled to?

Before considering how much compensation you may be entitled to for your claim for radial nerve damage at work, you must ensure that you are in fact eligible to pursue a claim for nerve damage compensation. In order to pursue a claim for damage to a radial nerve you must be able to identify a person whose negligent behaviour led to your injury. This person must have owed you a ‘duty of care’ – a responsibility to protect your health and safety – and as your accident occurred while you were in work, this is most likely to be your employer.

Once you have identified the person against who you are entitled to pursue a claim for damage to a radial nerve and have had your injuries treated by a medical professional, you should make an appointment to speak with a personal injury claims solicitor. At your initial consultation – which many solicitors in the UK now offer free of charge – your solicitor will be able to evaluate your claim on its merits and tell you whether or not you are entitled to claim for radial nerve damage at work, and if so, how much compensation you may be able to claim.

If your solicitor believes that you are entitled to pursue a claim for damage to a radial nerve they will begin their appraisal of your compensation claim by evaluating your entitlement to general damages compensation. To do this they will first consult the Judicial College Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages to obtain a base figure, and then augment that number taking into account a number of factors specific to your claim: your age, sex, state of health prior to the injury, and any loss of amenity – the inability to perform everyday activities and participate in social and family events – are taken into consideration, as are the location, nature and severity of the injury.

You can also be compensated for any psychological injuries you sustained as a direct result of your injury – anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress are among the illness for which you may be entitled to receive remuneration. It is important to note that the existence of these conditions will first have to be confirmed by a trained psychologist before you can include them in your damage to a radial nerve.

Once your solicitor has evaluated your entitlement to general damages nerve damage compensation they will ascertain how much special damages compensation you may be entitled to – special damages compensation is the portion of a claim for radial nerve damage for work which provides remuneration for any quantifiable monetary losses incurred as a result of your injury. Medical bills, any loss of earnings and the cost of alternative transport can be redeemed through the special damages portion of a nerve damage compensation settlement.

It is impossible to determine exactly how much compensation you may be entitled to using only the information provided in your question. For a full and comprehensive assessment, speak with a personal injury claims solicitor at the earliest possible opportunity. Only a personal injury claims solicitor is able to provide you with a reliable estimate of your true entitlement for your claim for radial nerve damage at work.
