Accidents, of one sort or the other, are unfortunately commonplace. Some of them can be unavoidable, but many accidents can be foreseen and prevented through certain precautionary measures.
If however, you are unable to avoid an accident and it was not you, but your employer or someone else at fault, you are eligible for a personal injury compensation claim.
The Worth of Your Claim
The accidents people usually suffer from can occur for a myriad of reasons, in a large variety of places, due to varying circumstances, and can involve only you, someone else, or multiple other people, any one or more of whom can be at fault. Therefore, the worth of your potential injury claim is variable too and there is no way to guarantee how much you will actually receive.
There are certain ways through which you can gain an estimate though, and obtain a fairly reasonable idea of the compensation you might be liable to receive. The primary method is of course, to consult with a personal injury solicitor with sufficient experience and expertise. Not only can they help you calculate the amount due to you, but they can also assess your case and determine whether or not your claim will be successful.
Alternatively, you could use a personal injury claim calculator, such as the 30-second test provided by Accident Advice Helpline to determine how much compensation you can expect for the injuries and losses you have suffered as a result of the accident. The calculator is easy to use and provides an average worth for your claim based on the compensation typically awarded to those who suffered from injuries similar to yours.
Knowing Just How Much
You would hardly want to file a lawsuit only to find that the compensation you receive is barely, or not at all, worth all the time and effort invested. It is useful therefore, to find out exactly how much your accident claim might be worth before you begin any legal proceedings. We can give you an estimate in merely 30 seconds, without having to set up appointments with a solicitor or even needing to pick up the phone.
Once you have an idea of the compensation you are eligible for, you can decide whether it is worth your while to file an injury claim or if it would be better to simply recover from your injuries at home and to carry on with your life. The first thing you have to consider when filing a claim for work injury compensation though, even before the amount you can receive, is if you could have somehow avoided the accident.
Evaluate what happened with an impartial mind and try to determine whether or not you are responsible for the accident yourself. If you determine that the accident was not your fault and that the actions or negligence of another party were to blame, contact Accident Advice Helpline for expert legal assistance on a no win no fee basis.
