2. Should you use a specialist work injury solicitor to make your compensation claim?
“Yes,” a specialist work injury solicitor will give you much better chances of ensuring you win your claim and maximise the sum of compensation you are entitled to receive.
So long as your personal injury is worth over £1,000 you can recover your legal costs from your employer in addition to your compensation. You state that you suffered a broken finger in your workplace accident – for this type of injury your work injury claim would be worth over £1,000.
The exact amount of compensation for a broken finger depends upon which finger was broken and the duration of the pain you suffer, which can only be accurately assessed once a medical expert report has been prepared describing your injury.
I recommend before you notify your employer of your claim you speak to an accident at work solicitor, as making a claim on your own behalf without expert legal help can put your compensation claim in jeopardy.
