Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our job is to help you to claim as much compensation as possible when you file a personal injury claim. In order to do this, we will need to begin by determining your compensation claims value in Canterbury. On this page, we are going to highlight absolutely everything you need to know about determining how much compensation you may be entitled to.
We will look at past cases
One of the benefits of working with Accident Advice Helpline is the fact that we have dealt with thousands of cases over the years. This means that we have a solid idea with regards to the amount of compensation that you may be entitled to in your particular case. It is highly likely that we have dealt with a case that has similar facts before.
It is, however, worth noting that we are not able to completely guarantee your compensation claims value in Canterbury by looking at past cases. Yes, facts are going to be slightly similar. However, there may be small differences between the cases which may have a drastic impact on the amount of compensation that you may be entitled to at the end of the day. We will, of course, always keep you up to date with regards to the amount of compensation that you may be expecting.
Most of your compensation claim will be tied to something known as general compensation. This is compensation awarded based upon the severity of your injuries. You may want to think of this as compensation for ‘pain and suffering’. Obviously, the more severe your injuries are, the more compensation you may be looking to claim here.
This is why it is so important that you supply us with your medical report when you first get in touch with us. If you are unable to provide us with a medical report, we will be unable to ascertain the severity of your injuries and, ultimately, be unable to determine how much compensation you are actually entitled to.
Compensation for financial losses
You will only be able to claim compensation for financial losses if you are actually successful with your general compensation claim. Compensation here can be used to cover any time that you have needed to take away from work due to your injuries, transport expenses (in some cases, at least), cost of medical care, if you have needed to pay for it, and a whole host of other things. We will always ensure that you are able to claim the maximum amount of compensation possible.
