How to calculate a compensation payout
If you have been in an accident, you may be wondering how much you could be entitled to in compensation
Every accident and injury is different, and as such, there are many factors that are taken into consideration when settling an amount. If you are thinking about making a compensation claim with a Denbighshire law firm, it’s important to keep a record of all the losses you have incurred as a result of your injury, as well as any supporting documentation to prove that you were not to blame. All of this will need to be presented to your solicitor in order for you to successfully seek compensation.
When determining how much your claim could be worth, our Denbighshire law firm will look at the following factors:
- Injury type and severity. A minor injury, such as a mild case of whiplash or a fractured wrist, will warrant less compensation than a serious injury involving the head, neck or spine, for example. A claims adviser will analyse your injury to see how much you could claim for the physical damage you have sustained.
- Financial losses. If your injury has resulted in you paying out of pocket for things like medical treatment, transport to and from appointments, or has impeded your ability to earn income, your lawyer will calculate the total amount the injury has cost you financially in a bid to make sure you are reimbursed for it.
If you want to get a rough idea of the amount our Denbighshire law firm can help you claim, take thirty seconds to fill in our online claims tool. This calculator will analyse some information about your accident and show you how much you could potentially receive right away. You can also fill in a longer form online, or call our helpline to have your case assessed by a claims adviser.
