The process of car accident compensation for UK residents has been improved greatly in the last decade. National law firms, such as Accident Advice Helpline, were established between ten and fifteen years ago with the sole purpose of helping people with their personal injury claims following a car accident.
What’s so great about car accident compensation for UK residents?
UK residents can claim for all sorts of injuries following a car accident. The scheme of car accident compensation for UK residents is so flexible that it can deal with moderate whiplash injuries right through to life-changing spinal injuries. All claimants have an opportunity to get the compensation that they deserve. Car accident compensation for UK residents is also relatively simple compared to some other areas of law. The claimant (that is the injured person) merely has to prove two things:
- That they were injured in the accident
- That the accident was someone else’s fault
Once this has been established then the process of negotiation can begin.
Who negotiates car accident compensation for UK residents?
For many people, this task is carried out by an Accident Advice Helpline personal injury lawyer. They will be negotiating some money for the injured person for two categories. Firstly, they will try and get some money for the injury itself. This can be a physical or psychological injury or a combination of the two. For example, you could suffer from whiplash and anxiety following a car accident.
In general terms, you will be more likely to get more money if you have a serious injury – this is fair and makes sense as it reflects the impact that the injury has had on your life.
The second element of the compensation is for the money that you have lost because you have been injured. Your Accident Advice Helpline personal injury lawyer will be asking you about things like loss of wages, childcare bills and even personal care and household help bills.
You will not find out the final amount of your compensation until your claim is finalised. However, UK residents can get an estimation of their final compensation amount. Accident Advice Helpline operates a unique 30 second test which will use some very simple information to calculate what your claim may be worth. You can access the unique 30 second test on-line or via a 24/7 hotline. As an added bonus the test also sorts out which claims are likely to be successful and which are not. It uses lots of information on car accident compensation for UK residents and uses it to calculate an answer for your particular circumstances. At the end of your claim your personal injury lawyer will contact you and inform you of your final compensation amount.
