If you have been involved in a Dorset car accident, you may be thinking about the amount of compensation that you may be entitled to claim. On this page, we will take a little look at how you can determine how much compensation you are entitled to.
A brief note on compensation
It is important to note that we at Accident Advice Helpline are unable to provide any sort of guarantee with regards to the amount of compensation that you are entitled to should you have been involved in a Dorset car accident. However, rest assured, our team will do their best to provide you with a reasonably accurate figure. There are, however, too many factors at play for us to determine how much compensation you are able to claim until the very end of the process.
This is your ‘basic compensation’. This compensation will, for the most part, be tied to the severity and the type of injury that you have suffered. This type of compensation is there to provide coverage for pain & suffering, plus the general hassle of being injured. You will only be able to claim the other types of compensation on this list if you are successful with your general compensation claim.
Claim for loss of income
If you have been involved in a car accident, it is likely that you will have needed to take some time away from work in order to rest and recuperate. If you are taking time away from work, this means your bills are not being paid. We will help you claim the compensation needed to cover this. We will be able to help you claim not only wages that you have lost already, but wages that you may lose going into the future due to your injuries (if you need further treatment).
Again, there is absolutely no guarantees with regards to the amount of compensation you can claim through Accident Advice Helpline. Rest assured, however, we will do our best to ensure that you are able to claim the maximum amount of compensation possible here.
Claim for medical expenses
If you have had to deal with medical expenses due to your injuries, we can help you claim these back. This means claiming back any more than you may have spent on medication, as well as any money that you have needed to spend on the rental or purchase of medical equipment.
We will also be able to help you claim back any money you have needed to spend on home adaptations in order to accommodate for your injuries.
