All about compensation
Ultimately if you make a successful claim against someone for causing you a personal injury of some description then you are going to be awarded financial compensation. This is what Cumbria accident claim solicitors are aiming to do when they work on your case for you.
The amount of compensation an individual is likely to be awarded as a result of a claim will depend on a variety of factors, and will vary from person to person depending on these factors. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our Cumbria accident claim solicitors are trained to be able to determine the likely value of a particular claim, however with the experience they have gained they know that things can change as more evidence is gathered and presented.
Types of compensation
Our Cumbria accident claim solicitors don’t just look for compensation for your injuries when they take on your claim, they are also looking to see if there is any other money that you could be entitled to.
For example, you may have incurred out of pocket expenses as a result of your accident or injury. It may be that you have had to travel to appointments, either medical or legal, or you have had to pay for medical treatment. You may have had to buy specialist equipment or pay for prescription charges. You may even have had to book in for private medical or clinical care.
Your Cumbria accident claim solicitors will also look to see if you have lost out on money as a result of your injuries. More often than not this is in the form of lost income caused as a result of inability to work immediately following an accident. You may have had to take time off whilst you recovered from your injuries, and this time off may not have been paid. You may also have had to take off holiday time to attend appointments which means you have reduced holiday entitlement for the remainder of the year. Your Cumbria accident claim solicitors will look to recover this for you.
Finally, your Cumbria accident claim solicitors will also look to determine whether your ability to earn an income has been affected as a result of your injuries. You may have to retire early on medical grounds, or perhaps have to take a lesser paid job as a result of an inability to perform to the same levels as before.
Whatever the affect your accident and injuries have had on your life our Cumbria accident claim solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline will do all they can to make sure that you get everything that you are entitled to.
