As anybody who has been injured in an accident caused by somebody else’s negligence knows all too well, you could be entitled to claim compensation provided it has been three years or less since your accident. Many people avoid making a claim as they either don’t think their injuries are serious enough or they don’t feel it will be worthwhile for the small amount of compensation they assume they will be entitled to.
Finding out your bodily injury claim value could help you to decide whether or not to proceed with a claim, and there is a quick and easy way to see how much compensation you could be entitled to in the event that your personal injury claim is successful. The 30-second test on Accident Advice Helpline’s website will give you an idea of how much you could receive.
Why does bodily injury claim value vary so much?
There’s a reason why bodily injury claim value can vary so much. Every claim is handled individually, taking into account a variety of different factors to work out how much compensation you are entitled to. For example, if you have sustained a serious head injury in a road traffic accident, you’re likely to receive more compensation than somebody who has simply sustained a minor whiplash injury.
Yet depending on the amount of time you have needed to take off work and any treatment you may need now and in the future, claim values can vary considerably even for two people who have sustained similar types of injuries. We take any loss of earnings into account when handling your claim, so you could be compensated for lost wages which will help your family out financially after your accident.
