    Compensation claims value in Newark and Sherwood

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Newark and Sherwood

    Many people, when they decide to pursue compensation wonder what their compensation claims value in Newark and Sherwood is going to be.  However, as with many things it is difficult to specify from the outset precisely what the outcome of a claim is going to be.

    While we of course hope that your claim is going to be a success there is absolutely no guarantee that this is going to be the case – so talking about the value of your claim may be a little premature.

    Things that affect the compensation claims value in Newark and Sherwood

    There are many things that need to be taken in to account when you are making a claim for compensation, and all of these will not only affect the validity of your claim, but how much you might ultimately be entitled to.

    For example, in an ideal world the accident that caused your injuries needs to not have been your fault.  If the accident was partially your fault you may still be able to make a claim but the value of your claim will be severely reduced.

    Take an example where the accident was not your fault at all, but something you did led to your injuries being more severe – perhaps you were knocked off your bike by another road user, but you weren’t wearing a helmet.  The injuries could be argued to be at least partly your fault, and there is no reason that another person should have to pay for them.

    The severity of your injuries will also have an impact on how much compensation you are likely to receive.  Generally speaking the more serious your injuries, the more treatment that is needed and the longer it takes to recover, the more compensation you will be awarded.  In fact, to find out how much you could be due to receive for your injuries alone you can take our 30 second test today.

    But this is not all that goes in to determining a claim value.  We will also look at whether you lost income as a result of taking time off work or if you had to make any outgoing payments.
