What is the cost of claiming compensation in Suffolk? Two different victims can be awarded totally different amounts for their ‘no win, no fee’ accident claim, even though they might have the same injuries sustained in the same way. Because the way injuries affect your life are accounted for when you are making a compensation claim, your personal circumstances can have a huge affect on the amount you are awarded.
What is the cost of claiming compensation in Suffolk?
If for example you had a single mother of young children break a leg and perhaps get whiplash in a road traffic accident, and maybe a high flying advertising executive in a similar accident with the same injuries the way their lives would be affected would be totally different. The expenses they had to cover would be different as well, as the parent may need to pay for childcare to help them cope with the injuries until they have recovered. They may also need help around the home.
It could be that they work part time while the children are at school, and will now lose the income from that as well as having to face all the extra outgoings.
The man that works in advertising will probably be paid whether he is at work or not, and even if he has young children the care of them will already be well sorted because of the lifestyle he lives.
The mum will get more for her ‘no win, no fee*’ accident claim
The life of the young mother will be much more affected by her accident and injuries than the life of the advertising guy, and this would all be taken into account when she makes her ‘no win, no fee*’ accident claim.
One thing they will have in common though is that to make their respective claims, the accidents they were in must have been caused by someone else. We already know their injuries were bad enough for medical attention to be needed, so the only other specification for making a claim is that it should have happened within the last three years.
Making a claim Accident Advice Helpline’s way
The other thing where they will have common ground, is their ability to use the no win no fee* services of Accident Advice Helpline. This means the young mum, who manages her money fine under normal circumstances but does not have spare cash, and the advertiser who has a very healthy bank balance, have exactly the same options without having to find any money to start their claim.
This is how it should be as there are too many things in life that only the rich can do, but making a personal injury claim is not one of them.
