Your accident and injury claims in Stratford-on-Avon questions answered
Making a claim for compensation can seem like a daunting process. Most of us have little to no experience of these situations and therefore rapidly feel out of our depth. However, the team at Accident Advice Helpline are on hand to help you quickly figure out where you stand and the best way to proceed.
Over the last 14 years or so we have answered numerous questions about how accident and injury claims in Stratford-on-Avon are made, and what people should expect. To help you better understand what it is that you are getting involved in when you make a claim we answer a few of these below.
How can you put a value on pain? Surely compensation is just meaningless?
It is important to bear in mind that the compensation you receive as part of you claim is not solely for the pain you have experienced as a result of your injury. Although this is part of the claim, it is only a small element. This is because as pointed out, you cannot put a value on pain as such.
However, you can put a value on the inconveniences that such injuries have caused. If you have missed work then you will have experienced financial losses. If you have had to pay for medical prescriptions or travel to appointments then you will have incurred expenses.
All of these things need to be taken into consideration and these are just some of the elements that go in to making your final compensation award.
How do you know who is liable for my accident?
Your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will look at the facts of your case and help determine ultimately who is responsible and liable. Depending on where the accident occurred there will be different legal precedents and regulations that need to be taken into account.
For example if your accident occurred at work then your solicitor will look to see if your employer is ultimately liable. They may not have trained you or another member of staff properly and this could be what led to your accident occurring.
