When people first get in touch with us here at Accident Advice Helpline, one of the first questions they tend to ask is how much compensation they may be entitled to. On this page, we are going to answer some of your most burning questions when it comes to determining your compensation claims value in Cannock Chase.
We can’t offer any guarantees
As a personal injury law firm, we have been in the business for an incredibly long time now. Over the past fifteen years, we have provided representation in hundreds and thousands of cases. This means that we have, most likely, dealt with similar cases to yours in the past. When we first start to work out your compensation claims value in Cannock Chase, we will take a little look at cases that we have dealt with which are similar to yours. This will enable us to get a rough figure with regards to the amount of compensation you may be entitled to.
It is worth noting that no matter how similar a case is in terms of facts, there is still absolutely no guarantee that this is the amount of compensation that you will get at the end of the day. Small differences in case facts will have a huge impact on compensation entitlement.
What will be used to determine how much compensation you may be entitled to?
Well, at the start, we will need to get our hands on your medical report. Your medical report will be used to determine the amount of general compensation that you may be entitled to. General compensation is often regarded as compensation for pain and suffering. Generally speaking, the more severe your injuries are, the more compensation you may be entitled to. This is why we need access to your medical report. It is the only way in which we will be able to determine how much compensation you may be entitled to.
If you do not have a medical report available, preferably prepared as soon as possible after you were injured, you will not be able to claim a single penny of compensation through Accident Advice Helpline.
In addition to this, you may also be able to claim compensation for any financial losses that can be attributed to your injuries. For example, if you have needed to take time away from work, you may be able to claim compensation for that. You may also be able to claim compensation for any medical expenses. This includes the cost of renting any medical equipment.
