When people first start to discuss their case with Accident Advice Helpline, quite often, their primary intention will be to determine how much compensation they are able to claim. On this page, we are going to walk you through absolutely everything you need to know about determining your compensation claims value in Buckinghamshire.
How much compensation can you claim?
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have provided representation for thousands of cases over the years. This means that at the start of the process, we will be able to look at some of these past cases which have similar facts to yours. This will give us a brief overview with regards to the amount of compensation you may be looking to claim.
However, do bear in mind that no matter how similar the facts of a particular case are, there may be small differences which have a drastic impact on the amount of compensation you will get at the end of the day. Basically, this will be used to provide a compensation claims value in Buckinghamshire which may go up or down.
Determining the value of your claim
In addition to looking at the past cases that we have dealt with here at Accident Advice Helpline, we will use a few other tools in order to determine how much compensation to claim for when we approach the other party’s insurance company. This includes the following:
- General compensation: This is where most of your compensation will come from. Many people like to think of general compensation as compensation for the pain and suffering of being injured. It is a little more than that, however. The amount of compensation that you will be able to claim here will be based on the severity of your injuries. The more severe your injuries, the more general compensation you will be entitled to. This means that somebody with a broken arm, for instance, may be able to claim less compensation that somebody with a broken leg as it will have a lesser impact on their life. We will need access to your medical report in order to determine the extent of your injuries here. If you do not have one, we at Accident Advice Helpline may be unable to help you.
- You may also be able to claim compensation for any financial losses that you have had to deal with. You will only be able to claim compensation here if your other claim is successful. Losses claimed for include time you have had to take away from work.
