Personal injuries can happen under a wide range of circumstances and in a variety of situations. A personal injury may affect people in different ways. For example, a fall on some broken pavement may result in a head injury, a broken arm or a fractured jaw. Just as personal injuries vary, so do accident injury claim amounts. If you are considering making a claim for compensation following a personal injury, accident injury claim amounts may be one of the first things you would like to find out more about.
How do you find out more about accident injury claim amounts?
The quickest way for you to check the amount of compensation you may be entitled to is by using an online tool, such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second calculator. This tool will firstly assess your eligibility, which largely depends on the following three factors:
- Your accident must have occurred within the past three years
- It must have happened as a result of someone else
- Your injury must have required medical attention
If you are eligible to make a claim, the 30-second calculator tool will ask a short series of questions to determine your potential compensation amount. Within half a minute, you will have a good idea of the amount you may be entitled to.
How accurate are compensation calculators?
Accident injury claim amounts can be estimated by compensation calculators, using data and statistics from previous, similar claims. However, your final entitlement may vary depending on factors including:
- The severity of your injury
- The length of time you have suffered with, or are likely to suffer with your injury
- Any expenses you have incurred as a result of the injury
- Any loss of earnings
Once you have gained an estimation of your compensation entitlement, you will have a rough idea of what to expect once you progress your claim.
