Most of us have heard about a car accident injury calculator but not so many of us understand how to use one or how they work. Before you start trying to use a car accident injury calculator yourself, you may find the following simple guide very useful.
A simple guide to using a car accident injury calculator
You will find a very fast and straightforward car accident injury calculator on the Accident Advice Helpline website. You have a choice of using it independently, by yourself, or having an advisor talk you through it. You can call Accident Advice Helpline for free at any time of the day or night if you would prefer to have someone help you use the car accident injury calculator.
You only need to set aside around half a minute to complete it although it would be useful if you have had a think about the questions that it will ask you before you actually start. You could have a think about:
- Was the car accident someone else’s fault?
- Did you receive medical attention for your injuries?
- Was your accident less than three years ago?
- Which part of you was injured?
If you are taking the test online then this will only take a few clicks of the mouse and keyboard to input. Before long you will have the information that you wanted and you will be able to make a decision about going ahead with your claim.
How does the car accident injury calculator work?
The Accident Advice Helpline car accident injury calculator is designed to give you two very useful pieces of information. Firstly, it tells you if your claim is likely to be successful. Secondly, it provides you with an estimate of how much money you might get if you win your car accident claim. Clients have said that these were the two most important pieces of information that they needed before they made the decision about whether to go ahead with their personal injury claim.
The car accident injury calculator takes the information that you have entered and does the following:
- It looks at whether the accident was your own or someone else’s fault. If the accident was your own fault then you cannot make a personal injury claim and the car accident injury calculator will tell you that your claim is unlikely to be successful.
- It looks at whether you received medical attention for your injuries. If you did not then your claim is unlikely to be valid.
- It looks at the date of your accident, if this was more than three years ago (the legal time limit) then you have probably missed your chance to claim.
- It looks at which part of your body was injured and calculates how much compensation you may get.
