Advice on claiming compensation in Leven
If you are here because you are researching how to go about claiming compensation in Leven following an accident that wasn’t your fault, then you’ve come to the right place. This short article will provide you with some useful information about personal injury compensation and give you some advice about helping your claim.
Personal injury compensation: the basics!
Personal injury compensation is a non-taxable sum of money paid out to the claimant, usually after an out of court settlement but sometimes after a court hearing. Claimants are people who have been injured or made unwell because of someone else’s negligence. Most personal injury claims arise from road traffic accidents, but thousands more stem from accidents at work, at home or out and about doing those daily chores.
You can claim personal injury compensation in Leven for any injury or illness, no matter how serious. You can even claim for psychological illnesses such as stress, anxiety and depression. Indeed, quite often these invisible injuries have a greater impact on people’s live than physical ones.
The amount of compensation awarded depends on the severity of the injury and the impact that injury had on the victim’s life and finances. For an estimate of how much YOU could get, use the compensation calculator on our website: www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk.
