Compensation solicitor in Hertford


Types of compensation

If you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault, then a solicitor in Hertford may be able to help you make a claim for compensation.

You may be well aware of this, after all, there are enough adverts on the television.  However, what you may not be aware of is that there are different types of compensation that you may be entitled to receive.

As well as the compensation you receive for the actual pain and suffering you have experienced, there is also something known as salary compensation.

Salary Compensation

Salary compensation is effectively reimbursement for loss of earnings. Your solicitor in Hertford will be able to speak to you about this in more detail and discuss your particular circumstances with you to establish how much you might be entitled to claim.

There are three things that are traditionally taken into account when determining the amount of salary compensation due during a personal injury claim.  Your solicitor in Hertford will look at:

  • Past pay compensation – this will take into account the actual amount of money you have lost through earnings up to the date that your claim is settled. This amount is easily calculated by looking at your wage slips and seeing how much time you have had to take off as a direct result of your accident and injuries. You may be required to obtain a letter from your HR department detailing the effect your time off has had on your earnings.
  • Future salary compensation – your solicitor in Hertford will arrange for you to see a medical expert who is independent from both yourself and the claims process.  They will assess your injuries and write a report outlining how reasonable any time off work you have had, or are continuing to have, is. The expert may determine that it is likely to take you another three months of recovery time before you are able to return to work. Your solicitor in Hertford will then take this into account and if this time extends past your settlement date, this amount will also need to be taken into account.
  • Disadvantaged with regards to work – you may have found that you could return to work by the time your claim is to be settled. However, your compensation solicitor in Hertford will be wondering what would happen if you were to find yourself unemployed and actively seeking work. Would you be disadvantaged in the working climate as a result of your injuries? Have they left you with a disability that means you would not be able to find alternative employment elsewhere? If this is the case then your solicitor in Hertford will take this into account when arguing how much compensation you should be awarded.
