Calculate the damages


One mistake that many people make, or rather something many people incorrectly assume, is that law firms such as Accident Advice Helpline calculate the damages that a claimant could potentially receive.

Law firms cannot calculate the damages

While it is true that we are able to make educated guesses, it is incorrect to say that we calculate the actual amount that would be awarded following a successful claim.

The reason why Accident Advice Helpline can make such estimations, is because we have amassed a considerable amount of experience over 15 years, and so have dealt with cases of varying nature on a daily basis.

Accident Advice Helpline

The process to calculate the damages for a personal injury that wasn’t the claimant’s fault is highly complex.

There are several factors to consider:

  • Nature of the injury
  • Severity of the injury
  • Impact on quality of life
  • Expenses incurred
  • Mental and emotional impact

This is not a definitive list, but it should give some indication as to how complicated the process can actually be.

At Accident Advice Helpline, our lawyers work on a no-win, no-fee* basis, which means that no money is required up-front to make a claim.

What makes a valid claim?

To begin a claim on a no-win, no-fee* basis, certain criteria needs to be met first.

Any accident that you are claiming for cannot have been your fault, and injuries that you are quoting for in the claim must have come about as a direct result of that accident.

Nobody expects you to file a claim the second that you pick yourself up off the ground, but it is expected that you make a claim within a reasonable amount of time. In the UK, the law says that this period of time equates to three years. Any claim made after that time will be discounted and basically, you have no case. There are exceptions though; for example if you were a child when the accident occurred, then you have up until the age of 21 to make a claim. Also, in the case of industrial disease, you have three years from the date of diagnosis, rather than the date of contraction.
