    What compensation injury award should I receive?

    If you’re seeking compensation injury lawyers who specialise in personal injury compensation can help you win the award you need to pay for your medical treatment and get you back on your feet.

    The most important issue at the front of your mind will be how much your compensation injury award is worth. Following on, it makes sense to find the legal representative right for your case, because the location, instance and nature of the injury demand different specialisms.

    Why expertise matters

    Lawyers specialise in different areas of the law for compensation injury cases:

    • Injury at work
    • Industrial disease (acquired over a period of time)
    • Medical negligence
    • Road traffic accidents
    • Accidents in public places
    • Sports injuries
    • Boating accidents

    A step at a time

    The first thing to do is to see if you have an eligible claim. If so, answering some quick questions about your injury will help establish what your claim might be worth. Many common injuries, such as whiplash, sprains, broken limbs and back injuries, for example, already have precedents for compensation injury pay-out amounts.

    Ask for advice

    Online there are many compensation providers, such as Accident Advice Helpline, who will provide a quick estimate of what a claim might be worth, but it is important to remember that it is only an estimate and final amounts are never guaranteed.

    If you have a friend or a contact who works in a law firm or who knows somebody, you may be able to find a lawyer by personal recommendation, but if you don’t, there is plenty of information on the net.

    I don’t want to go to court

    You may not have to. Most cases are settled out of court, but if there are complicating circumstances, or the claimant feels the defendant has not offered enough money to settle the compensation injury claim, and then it may do.

    Usually the solicitor would advise at this stage whether to accept the lower offer, or go to court and take a risk of running up a bill for costs. At all stages, the claimant should make certain he understands what costs he may be liable for, whether he wins compensation or not.
