Hi there, giving you an idea of figures is going to be extremely difficult on here as that would inevitably depend on the strength of your case.
Unfortunately, the rules I work under do not allow me to discuss your chances of success in court. When solicitors determine these, we would conduct a formal case analysis and take the full details and evidence that are available into consideration. On this site we deal with very limited information in a Q&A format, so inevitably certain details and evidence will be missed. Therefore, if we discussed prospects of success based on this limited information alone, we could end up giving misguided advice and prompt you into either making a claim or not making one, when in reality we may have advised the opposite had we known the full details. That is why we are only limited to discussing the legal position and your options, without actually commenting on how good or bad a case you have.
However I can give you an idea of how the compensation for disability discrimination is calculated which may give you some insight.
If a claim for discrimination is made, the usual remedy would be to award compensation for injury to feelings. This is calculated by considering the level of discrimination, which the claimant has been subjected to. The seriousness of the discriminatory behaviour is assigned to one of three ‘bands’ known as Vento bands, named after a court case which considered this subject. The current compensation levels are as follows:
· Lower band - for less serious cases, for example an isolated incident or event (£900 - £8,800)
· Middle band - for serious cases which are not serious enough to fall within the highest band (£8,800 - £26,300)
· Top band - for the most serious cases, for example if there has been a lengthy and calculated campaign of harassment/discrimination (£26,300 - £44,000). Awards can exceed this only in the most exceptional cases.
The above are the general guidelines but the tribunals have the power to increase them by a further 10% to take into account inflation.
