A rough calculation of what you may be awarded if you use an expert injury lawyer in Portrush
Most leading sites, including ours, in the personal injury compensation claim industry, have a personal injury calculator on their website. At Accident Advice Helpline we call ours the 30-second test, and it will let you know if you qualify to make a claim and give you a rough idea of the amount you can expect to be awarded.
The accuracy of a claims calculator
Never assume the amount the personal injury calculator tells you is set in stone, and that the amount will not vary from it, it can go up or down according to the severity of injury, your age, and lots of other circumstances. We do our best to make the estimates as close to the correct figure as possible, but someone else is also involved in making the decision about the amount, the other party in an out of court settlement and the judge if the case goes to court. An expert injury lawyer in Portrush would know this.
The differing effects of injuries
Your injury can be something quite mild like a few cuts and bruises to injuries that are disabling and life changing like a brain injury. They can even be fatal, and then it would be your family that makes the fatal injury compensation claim. A similar injury in a young child, an adult and an elderly person can have totally different consequences, and affect their lives in different ways. Broken bones are a prime example; they will heal the quickest in a child and slowest in an elderly person.
If a woman is pregnant when the accident happens, the injuries can be far worse and may even affect the unborn baby. Any mother to be in this situation should go straight to hospital to be checked out. If the accident was not her fault, she should also consider making a personal injury claim, using an expert injury lawyer in Portrush.
