    Compensation claims value in Portsmouth

    Once you know that you can make a claim for compensation one of the biggest things that you are likely to have on your mind is what your likely compensation claims value in Portsmouth is going to be.  This is perfectly reasonable as, after all, you are going to be making a claim predominantly so that you can secure compensation – you are therefore going to want to know that it is going to be worth it.

    However, it is not always as easy as we would like to determine how much a claim is likely to be worth.  There are many different things that can increase, or ultimately decrease the value of a claim and when you start the process it can be difficult to predict what factors are likely to be present in your case.

    Factors that can increase your compensation claims value in Portsmouth

    Let’s look at what your claim is going to be based on initially.  The first thing that is going to be taken in to account is the extent of your injuries and whether these have caused you ongoing problems.  The more serious your injuries and the impact that they have had on your day to day life following your accident the more compensation you are likely to receive.

    You can actually take our 30 second test, which is right here on our website to find out how much you could be entitled to for your specific injuries. Bear in mind though that this is just a guideline as even similar injuries will affect different people in different ways.

    Another factor that will potentially increase your award is whether or not you have had to take time off from work.  If this time off was unpaid, or impeded you in any other way then you can get compensation for this – as long as you can provide the necessary proof.

    You can also recover any out of pocket payments that you have had to make as a result of your claim. This can include paying for child care or other professional services as a direct result of your accident.  It most commonly refers to travel costs and prescription charges.

    Reductions to compensation values

    The biggest risk to your claim value is if it can be shown you were partially at fault for either your accident or the severity of your injuries.  If so, then you will not be able to claim 100% of the compensation you might be due.
