    Compensation Amounts for Personal Injury

    Claiming any compensation amounts for personal injury is a decision that may feel right after being involved in an accident caused by another person or organisation. If someone else is to blame, compensation is there to protect you and provide a monetary figure that may be able to help alleviate your suffering.

    How are compensation amounts for personal injury claims determined?

    Compensation amounts for personal injury claims are largely determined by your injury type and severity. For example, a sprained ankle will be eligible for a different amount of compensation than perhaps a brain injury or spinal injury, which will likely be much more severe.

    Financial impact is another consideration when determining compensation amounts for personal injury claims. This may include care costs, loss of income through an inability to work (either short term or long term), and medical expenses such as medication bills and specialist treatment costs. Compensation should help to ensure that you are not out of pocket as a result of your accident – either now, or in the future.

    By speaking with a compensation provider such as the Accident Advice Helpline, you will be able to get an idea of compensation amounts for personal injury claims in relation to your specific situation. We run a 24 hour advice line on 0800 180 4123, or alternatively you can use our quick and easy 30 second online tool, which will assess your eligibility to claim and if you are entitled, return an approximate compensation figure with a lower and upper range depending on severity.

    What types of injury may be eligible to receive compensation?

    As long as your personal injury happened within the past three years, someone else was to blame and you required medical attention, then you should be able to claim for compensation. Personal injuries encompass a wide range of accidents types, including work accidents, road traffic accidents and slips, trips and falls. Injuries caused by these accidents could include:

    • Back injury

    No matter what your accident or resulting injury, if you are eligible to receive compensation you should pursue your right to make a claim.
