If you are looking into the idea of making personal injury claims in Basildon, then it is likely that you will have your mind set on compensation. On this page, we at Accident Advice Helpline are going to discuss what compensation is and how much you may be looking to obtain.
What is compensation?
Compensation is there to ensure that a person is not left out of pocket due to the negligence of another person or company. It is also there to ensure that a person is awarded an amount of money for the pain, suffering and inconvenience of having to deal with their injuries. It is, unfortunately, impossible for us here at Accident Advice Helpline to predict how much compensation you may be entitled to, as all claims in Basildon are different.
However, you can get an estimate of how much it could be by completing our online 30 second test, or chatting to one of our friendly advisors.
General compensation is going to be the base amount of compensation that you receive. As you can probably guess, the amount of general compensation that you will be able to claim will be dependent on the severity of your injuries and how they have affected your life. The more severe they are, the more compensation you will be entitled to.
Compensation for financial losses
If your claim is successful, you may be entitled to compensation for any financial loss that you have had to deal with due to your injuries. This is to ensure that you are not left out of pocket because somebody else was negligent. At Accident Advice Helpline we can provide assistance when it comes to claiming compensation for all manner of financial losses. Some of the most common that we can claim back are:
- Loss of income. Whether you have had to take a couple of days off of work or are unable to return to work ever again, we will be able to help you claim compensation for your lost income. This will ensure that you are able to meet your financial commitments.
- Medical expenses. This includes, for instance, the cost of medication and the cost of renting certain medical equipment.
- Childcare expenses. These can very soon amount to a lot of money, but children come first and if you need help to care for yours until you have recovered, then it has to be paid for.
- Travel expenses. If you now need to take public transport due to your injuries, or use taxis to and from hospital appointments, the cost of these can be reclaims.
