It can be difficult to know exactly what your compensation claims value in Pontypridd is likely to be, following an accident which was not your fault. There are many factors which affect the value of your compensation claim, and there are also things that you can do to make it more likely that you will get more money from a successful claim.
Here are some of the things that affect your claim amount, and how to help your claim along.
How bad your injuries were
Part of your compensation claim amount will come down to how badly you were injured and how much this is likely to affect your life in the upcoming months.
You should see a doctor as soon as possible after your accident and get a medical assessment, but wait until you have a proper, final diagnosis before you put your claim forward, so that the full extent of your injuries is known.
Whether you have to take time off or not
If you have to take a lot of time off from work then the loss of earnings can be brought into your claim and bump up the amount that you can claim significantly.
Ask your employer for a letter which states how much time you have had to take off and how much you would have earned in wages during this time.
Who was to blame?
Obviously you can only make a claim if another person was at fault for your accident, but you may have to take less compensation if it can be proved that you were partly at fault for your accident as well.
This is why it is key that you gather evidence proving the fault of the other person.
