When making a claim for injury compensation people are often worried that it may not amount to much or be worth the stress and hassle. However, even the most minor injuries may be liable for some compensation if they have put you in a vulnerable position.
Amount of personal injury compensation
The amount of money you will receive in compensation depends on the seriousness of the negligence. As it is awarded to compensate for the pain, suffering and general hindrance and effect your injury has had on your normal way of life, the amount received is different depending on each individual case. The amount of compensation you are awarded will also take into account the amount of pain and suffering you are likely to go through in the future. In addition, the amount of injury compensation you receive should cover the financial costs if you are unable to work and any costs associated with the injury, such as prescriptions or travel expenses for attending hospital and doctor appointments.
