If you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault, you will want to ensure that the guilty party is brought to justice and that you do not lose out financially as a result of their carelessness. You may therefore be curious to learn more about your eligibility to claim personal injury compensation.
At Accident Advice Helpline, our dedicated personal injury solicitors handle thousands of compensation claims each year. Since every case is unique, it is often difficult for us to determine the validity of your claim without first taking down the details of your accident.
Generally, if you’ve been hurt because of someone else within the last 3 years’ and you received medical treatment, you should be able to make a claim and an accident solicitor in Yatton could help.
Factors affecting your compensation settlement
The amount of compensation you will receive will depend on a range of factors, including:
The nature and severity of your injuries
Minor injuries, such as cuts and lacerations, are associated with lower compensation settlements than severe injuries, such as brain and spinal damage.
The length of time it will take you to recover from your injuries
Injuries that resolve themselves within weeks of an accident are associated with lower compensation settlements than those that take numerous years to recover from or, in serious cases, result in permanent symptoms. Injuries that cause a permanent level of disability are associated with large compensation settlements
