How long will it take me to get paid Tesco work injury compensation, and how much am I likely to receive for breaking a bone in my finger?

It is not possible to determine exactly how much a Tesco work injury compensation claim is worth from the information you have provided, as there are many factors which affect how much compensation for a Tesco work injury will be awarded. The calculation of the level of Tesco work injury compensation you are entitled to receive will depend on the exact nature of your injury, the extent of the damage, the likelihood of making a full recovery and any permanent loss of functionality in your finger.
You can get a first impression of the range of compensation you may be likely to receive – should your Tesco work injury compensation claim be successful – by reviewing the Book of Quantum. The Book of Quantum provides a financial value for physical injuries and while the level of Tesco work injury compensation you should receive is likely to fall within the range suggested in the book it is by no means guaranteed. Please note that Tesco work injury compensation amounts published in the Book or Quantum relate to physical pain and suffering only, and any loss of amenity, emotional trauma or financial loss must be claimed separately.
The best way to determine how much compensation for a Tesco work injury you are likely to receive is to speak with a personal injury solicitor. A personal injury solicitor will confirm your eligibility to claim Tesco work injury compensation and, after listening to the details of your injury, you will be advised of the likely range of compensation which you should receive and the most appropriate way to claim Tesco work injury compensation on the Injuries Board´s Application Form A.
If the Tesco work injury claim is not contested and it is processed by the Injuries Board, it is likely to take at up to 12 months for you to receive compensation for a Tesco work injury. Tesco work injury compensation claims can be settled more quickly if your chosen solicitor can negotiate a settlement directly with Tesco’s insurers.
