    Injury claim jargon buster: Maximum severity


    At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that the words and phrases used in the claim process can be a little bit difficult to comprehend.

    As a result, we publish these handy jargon buster guides to enlighten our clients as to how the claims process works, making the legal journey more transparent and straightforward.

    In this article we’ll be having a look at the term ‘maximum severity’ and what it means to you as a personal injury victim.

    Maximum severity

    When used in the context of a claim for personal injury compensation, maximum severity refers to most serious of cases where a person has suffered a catastrophic injury. This may be losing a limb as the result of a road traffic accident, severe brain damage from a fall from height or spinal injury which renders the victim unable to walk.

    Cases of maximum severity are extremely unfortunate to say the least, and it’s important to get the justice you deserve, if your life has been radically altered for the worse as the result of an accident such as a car crash.
