One thing many people are intrigued by is their compensation claim’s value in Torbay; this is largely due to the fact there’s no one simple answer to the question, “how much is my claim worth?”
Because of this, we at Accident Advice Helpline have put together some information on the topic to help you better understand the potential value of your compensation claim.
Your compensation claim’s value in Torbay
Here are straight answers to some common claims questions.
What is compensation?
Compensation is the financial award that people are making a claim for when they’ve been injured in an accident. It is made up of special and general damages, both of which are paid out in recognition of different things.
Compensation is a payout in recognition of injuries suffered, pain and suffering, financial loss, and inability to perform certain functions that will affect your day to day life.
Why might my compensation claim’s value be different?
Compensation claims are assessed on individual merit. While there are “brackets” of compensation for different injuries, two people with very similar injuries may receive different amounts of compensation based on the individual factors of their claim.
Because of this, it is very difficult to put a singular number on what a case could be worth without looking at it in a relatively large amount of detail and examining the circumstances.
What factors could have an impact on the value of my claim?
There are a large number of factors which could have an impact on the value of your claim. These include, but are not necessarily limited to:
- the circumstances surrounding your accident
- the liability of your accident
- the location of your injury
- the severity of your injury
- the overall impact the accident or injury has had on your life
