When it comes to making a claim for accident compensation, the amount you’ll receive is calculated on an individual basis. Accident Advice Helpline takes into account things such as:
- How you have been injured
- The severity of your injuries
- How long you are likely to take off work
- How your earnings have been affected
- Whether you will be able to work in future
- How your future earnings will be affected (if at all)
- Any other financial losses you have suffered
These factors allow us to calculate a personalised injury settlement that ensures you are adequately compensated, however you have been injured. Because accident compensation amounts vary, it’s very difficult to say how much compensation you could get after your accident, but you can take the 30-second test on our website to get an idea of how much you could receive.
What are some accident compensation amounts examples?
You’re more likely to receive a settlement of hundreds of thousands of pounds if you have sustained a life-changing injury. For example if you have been left unable to walk after a spinal injury suffered in a car crash caused by somebody else, you could receive compensation for loss of earnings for the rest of your life, as well as compensation to cover the cost of ongoing care and medical treatment. If you suffer minor injuries in a slip, trip or fall at work – such as a broken ankle – your settlement is going to be smaller to reflect this, but you could still be compensated for loss of earnings for the time you need to take off work. It’s always worth getting in touch with us to find out how much you could claim, as accident compensation amounts can vary so much.
Should you make a claim?
We believe that anybody injured in an accident that was somebody else’s fault should consider making a personal injury claim. There is no pressure to proceed with a claim when you contact Accident Advice Helpline though – our advisors offer advice in confidence and on a no-obligation basis. You can call us on 0800 689 0500 (or call 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to find out more about what happens next and get answers to your questions, whatever has happened and however you have been injured.
You could even make a claim on behalf of a family member if they have suffered life-changing injuries and are unable to claim compensation themselves.
