All injuries can result in one of two outcomes, no matter what sort of injury you have. Firstly, it might completely resolve itself in time, leaving you with no outstanding problems. Secondly, it may never fully heal, which means you will have problems from that moment on. These issues could be severe or minor, depending on what injury you had and how bad it was. Therefore, when you are wondering about a shoulder injury claim value, you should understand you can only get a better idea of a claim’s value through speaking to a personal injury lawyer.
Claims are usually calculated depending on whether the injury is mild, moderate or severe. The length of time the injury causes problems for will also be considered. This is the main reason why someone making a compensation claim will need to see an independent doctor. They will assess the injury and the prognosis and make a report that will help lawyers determine how much compensation should be paid, if the claim is successful.
Can I use an online calculator to find my shoulder injury claim value?
You can certainly use online calculators that claim to provide an idea of what you could potentially win. However, you should remember these calculators won’t have all the facts. You can usually enter the type of injury you have and that’s about it. You might be able to specify the severity of it, but you may over or underestimate this.
Therefore, we would always recommend you have a chat with an expert to get a better idea of your position. You can find out for certain whether a claim might be possible, and you can also see what you might potentially win. Even then, you will not know for certain until your lawyer advises you of any offer the third party’s lawyers might have made.
