    Claiming for accident expenses in South Somerset


    Personal Injury Solicitors in South Somerset

    At the Accident Advice Helpline, our trained claims advisors are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about claiming for accident expenses in South Somerset. One of the most frequently asked questions directed at our team is “How much is my claim worth?”, but unfortunately, the answer to this question is not as straightforward as you may think. Calculating the total value of your claim is never easy, as it requires us to put a price on things that do not carry a monetary value, such as your physical pain and psychological suffering.

    Calculating the value of your claim

    If you pursue a claim through us, your solicitor will work hard to collect evidence that proves you have suffered pain and distress. The primary factors we will use to calculate the value of this aspect of your settlement are:

    • The seriousness of your injury
      We will arrange for you to attend a medical examination so that an expert can report on the seriousness of your injury. If you have suffered a severe injury, you will receive more compensation than someone who has suffered a minor injury.
    • Your future prognosis
      If you have sustained a serious injury, you may require extended medical treatment and rehabilitation, and your pain and suffering may continue for some time. We will therefore fight to ensure you receive a compensation settlement that reflects the duration of your recovery.

    In addition to compensation for your pain and suffering, we can help you with claiming for accident expenses in South Somerset, that have resulted from your accident. To calculate the value of this aspect of your award, we will consider:

    • Your medical treatment charges
      You will be able to claim for any necessary private medical treatment costs you have incurred, plus any projected future medical treatment charges.
    • Your lost earnings
      You will be entitled to recoup the cost of any earnings you have lost, plus any projected future losses of income.
    • Your out-of-pocket expenses
      You will be able to claim for the sum of all your out of pocket expenses, plus any projected future losses.
