Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we want to help you to claim compensation for head injuries in Bournemouth. On this page, we are going to take a little look at how much compensation you may be looking to claim when you work with our team of experienced lawyers.
We offer no guarantees
Sadly, we at Accident Advice Helpline are unable to provide any guarantees with regards to the amount of compensation for head injuries in Bournemouth you may be looking to claim when you work with us. We will, of course, quote you a rough figure, however, you should be aware that there is a good chance that the figure you are quoted may go up or down. We will, of course, work hard to keep you up to date each and every step of the process.
The bulk of your compensation claim will be focused on general compensation. This is where you are awarded a payment based upon the inconvenience of being injured. You can think of this as compensation for pain and suffering. Every compensation claim will have some element of general compensation incorporated into it.
Now, the amount of compensation that you will be entitled to here will, obviously, be based around how serious your head injuries are. This means that if you wish to work with Accident Advice Helpline, you will need to supply us with the medical report which outlines the extent of your injuries. You should visit the doctor or hospital as soon as possible after you have been involved in the incident to ensure that the medical report is as accurate as possible and to ensure that you are able to claim as much compensation as possible.
Compensation for financial losses
Not everybody will be able to claim compensation for financial losses. However, if there is a good chance that you will be entitled to claim it, we will be able to help you out. You will not be able to claim for financial losses unless your claim for general compensation is also successful. Losses that you may be able to claim for include:
- Loss of income. This means that if you have had to take time away from work due to your injuries.
- Medical expenses. This can include something as simple as medication or, perhaps, certain pieces of medical equipment.
- Travel expenses if you are no longer able to drive due to your injuries e.g. if you now need to use public transportation which is more expensive and, ultimately, a whole lot less convenient.
