When would I need a car injury claim calculator?
It’s a broad term, and “car injury claim” covers all kinds of injuries. Clients of ours have included young mums who’ve been waiting patiently for the traffic light to turn green and been shunted from behind, resulting in shock and whiplash. Complications of this accident can include migraines, blurred vision and pins and needles.
Whiplash is the most common basis of a car injury claim. Our car injury claim calculator can provide an estimate of what these kinds of claims could be worth. A minor whiplash injury resulting in a few days off work and a full recovery will possibly achieve an award of a few hundred pounds, but if complications develop over weeks or months, the amount can be higher.
What other classes of injury will the car injury claim calculator work out?
After whiplash, the next most common injuries from car accidents are broken or sprained limbs, and the award values can range from a thousand pounds to several thousand, depending upon the type of injury, the recovery time and/or complications, and how it affects the victim’s life. If a professional footballer breaks a knee in a car accident, it will have a worse impact on his career than, say, a financial advisor.
Of course, a car accident injury is extremely inconvenient. If you are an office worker or do your work mostly online, then a wrist in plaster is going to cause you some significant loss of income. A wrist injury can pay two or three thousand pounds, depending on the detail and on your individual circumstances. A claim typically takes into account pain and inconvenience, recovery time, extra expenses incurred and loss of income.
