When you have suffered because of a road traffic accident, work-related injury or travel incident, which was no fault of your own, you are right to feel as though you are entitled to some amount of compensation.
It may be that a friend or family member has recommended that you seek help or advice following your car collision, after his or her own experience of the aftermath of road-related injury. When this is the case, details of their pay-out sum may entice you to investigate your claim further.
Will I receive the same car crash compensation as my friend or family member?
In a word, no. It is unlikely that your road traffic accident claim will match that of the person who has recommended you seek legal advice.
In 2012 alone, there were 195,723 cases of injured or killed victims of road traffic accidents, all of which are unique incidents. It is the details of these accidents, the how and why and the outcome of the collision, that determine the scale of your compensation.
Can I get a rough idea?
Accident Advice Helpline provide a compensation calculator on their website – also known as the 30-second test – which will inform you almost instantaneously if you are eligible to claim compensation for your accident on the road.
Other than this, advice can be sought 24/7 via the law firm’s free advice helpline, with no pressure to proceed following the phone call.
It is important to remember that although you may be given a guideline figure for your car crash claim, this is merely an estimate. Exact figures cannot be provided until after your claim is processed.
