If you are making a claim then there is every chance that you will be interested in knowing how to calculate compensation claims value in Preston. This is logical, and while we wish there was a straight forward answer the simple fact of the matter is that your compensation value will be determined by a number of different factors.
Once all of these things are taken in to account it is possible to determine how much you could be entitled to.
What determines the compensation claims value in Preston?
The first thing that is going to determine how much compensation you could be entitled to is the injuries you have sustained. You can take our 30 second test to find out what the range of compensation you could be entitled to for your specific injury might be.
However, this is just a guideline that will show the maximum and minimum values that you can expect. No two injuries are ever the same, even if they are similar. A broken leg for one person may not have that much impact on that individual’s day to day life, but for another it could mean the end of their professional dancing or football career.
These are the sorts of things that have to be taken in to account when looking at the effects of your accident and injury, and therefore looking at what compensation you should be awarded. This is why you will be advised to see an independent medical expert who will be able to assess your condition and determine how you are recovering.
We will also have to look at whether the accident has cost you anything. It might be that you had to take some time off work, which was unpaid. You might have had to take a lot of time off work which was paid at a lower rate than your usual wage. You may even find that you have to leave your job altogether because you are no longer fit enough to be able to do it. In this case you may have to remain on welfare benefits, or you may have to take a lower paid job. All of these things are going to have a huge impact on your income.
