Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we will put a lot of effort into helping you to claim compensation for head injuries in Boston. Now, of course, most of this work will be spent dealing with the insurance company of the party at fault. Before we get to this stage, however, we are going to need to determine how much compensation you may be entitled to. On this page, we are going to walk you through the process that we follow in order to determine this.
We look at previous cases
When we first take on your case, we will look in our backlog of thousands of cases to see whether there is something which has similar facts to your case. This will give us a rough guideline with regards to the amount of compensation for head injuries in Boston you may be able to claim through us. It is, probably, worth noting that the figure we give you will, most likely, not be 100% accurate. This is because there can be a lot of differences between cases, even if the most basic facts are the same. Rest assured, however, we will always do our best to help you to claim as much compensation as possible.
How do we determine the amount of compensation that you are entitled to?
Firstly, we will need to get our hands on the medical report that you had produced close to the time of the accident. This is because the medical report will highlight the extent of your injuries. Accident Advice Helpline can’t take on any compensation claim if no medical report exists.
The bulk of your compensation will come under a title known as ‘general compensation’. You can think of this as compensation for ‘pain and suffering’. The amount of compensation that you are entitled to here will be dependent on the severity of your injuries. The more severe your injuries are, the more money you will be able to claim through Accident Advice Helpline. So, in terms of head injuries, a light bump on the head which causes headaches for a month or two will attract less compensation than a concussion or coma.
If you are successful with your general compensation, you may also be able to claim compensation for financial losses. This includes being able to claim compensation for lost income, medical expenses, including medication and medical equipment. In a few cases, we may also be able to help you to claim back certain amounts of cash related to travel expenses.
