Compensation with Accident Advice Helpline
One thing everyone wants to know when making a claim is how much compensation they are going to be entitled to. Of course it is impossible to provide a definitive answer without knowing the ins and outs of your case. If you want an accurate estimate you can either take the 30-second test on our website or you can give us a call and one of our advisers will assist. Nevertheless, before doing so it is a good idea to have an understanding of how compensation is calculated.
Compensation is split into two parts. The first part is general damages. This is the amount of money you will receive for your injuries and suffering. It is calculated based on the severity of your injuries and the impact it is having on your life now and in the future. When you see a doctor they will put together a medical report that states your injuries and the recommended course of treatment. This is then used to determine how much general damages you will receive.
The second part of compensation is special damages. This is the sum of money you will receive for any out of pocket expenses you have encountered because of your injuries. Prime examples include prescription costs, counselling expenses, loss of income, travel costs, vehicle repair costs and much more. You will need proof of these costs, so make sure you don’t throw out your receipts or any other documents that are relevant to the expenses you have incurred.
