    Calculate how much you could claim for your Injury ?

    Although it is almost impossible to do this by specifying the exact amount you will obtain for your whiplash claim, you can get a rough estimate by using an online whiplash injury compensation calculator. While using this tool, keep in mind that the amount you will obtain depends on various factors, including the skill and knowledge of your solicitor.

    Essential facts to know about the whiplash injury compensation calculator

    This calculator actually delivers an ingenious test available for anyone who wants to find out if he or she has a claim and how much can be obtained for a whiplash injury resulting from a car accident. The calculator analyses the information you provide, telling you how much you can claim for your injury.

    Typically, most whiplash injury compensation calculators provide basic amounts that can be increased by knowledgeable lawyers quite easily. For example, if you have been diagnosed with a minor whiplash injury that leaves you with pains and aches in your shoulders and neck, the lawyer may ask you to see another doctor as soon as possible. This is because a minor whiplash injury can turn into a moderate or severe whiplash injury. In this case, the compensation amount you can get is quite large because the costs of regular medical check-ups, medication, sick leave, and specialist treatment such as physiotherapy, add up quickly. If you are aware of all these before approaching a personal injury solicitor, you can use the calculator to assess the additional costs you can claim back. If the calculator confirms that you are entitled to receive compensation, it is vital to approach a personal injury attorney as soon as you can.

    Another thing you should know is that these calculators are available online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Thus, you can use any of these tools to find out how much compensation you can get for your claim when it is convenient for you.

    What should you do after using the calculator?

    After you use the whiplash injury compensation calculator, it is time to search for a reliable personal injury solicitor who can handle your case. An expert whiplash solicitor can easily set your claim for the highest amount relating to the severity of your injury.

    This is because expert solicitors take into account two different types of damages: general damages and special damages. While the general damages refer to the amount you are entitled to receive for the physical and emotional pain – actual damage – as a direct result of the car accident you had, the special damages relate to special losses you encountered due to the accident. Particularly, these damages include: any loss of earnings together with potential loss of future earnings as a result of your injury; transportation expenses as a result of your vehicle being in a repair shop; personal care expenses as a result of paying someone to look after you during the recovery period; and medical expenses necessary for treating the injury and associated complications.
