When we deal with your claim, one of our main jobs here at Accident Advice Helpline will be to assess the compensation claims value in Ashford i.e. the amount of compensation that you may be entitled to claim. On this page, we are going to discuss a little bit about the process that we follow here.
A brief note on compensation claims
Whilst Accident Advice Helpline is an incredibly experienced law firm, it is impossible for us to give an accurate figure when it comes to compensation claims value in Ashford. This is, simply, down to the fact that there are a number of different factors at play which may have a huge impact on the amount of compensation that you are entitled to. It is tough to predict these factors. That being said, we will always do our best to provide you with the most accurate figure possible.
The bulk of the compensation that you will be rewarded, in most cases at least, will come under this category. Most people like to think of general compensation as compensation for ‘pain and suffering’. We like to see it as compensation for the inconvenience of suffering from an injury.
The amount of compensation that you will be entitled to claim here will be determined by the severity of your injuries. The more serious your injuries are, the more compensation you will, most likely, be able to claim. Remember, we can deal with injuries of all severities and types here, all you need to do is supply us with a medical report which demonstrates that you have had to deal with that particular injury. We can’t proceed with a compensation claim without this medical report.
Compensation for financial losses
Not everybody will be able to claim compensation for financial losses. Obviously, you will only be able to claim compensation here if you can demonstrate a loss, and we will help you to gather the evidence that you need, that you have suffered some sort of financial loss. You will only be able to claim this type of compensation if your claim for general compensation is successful. We can provide assistance when it comes to claiming all sorts of financial loss, but the most common ones that we deal with here at Accident Advice Helpline include:
- Loss of income due to needing to take time away from work as a result of your injuries e.g. for treatment, or simply during recovery.
- Medical expenses
- Travel costs
- Childcare costs, if you can’t look after your children due to your injuries.
