For anyone making a personal injury claim it becomes a little difficult to give uniform advice for every person because there are so many variables. If you’re looking for an expert solicitor in Hamble then your personal situation, your location and the nature of your accident are just some of the things you might want to take into consideration.
The first thing that might affect you is your personal circumstances before the accident. As a freelancer, I would be more vulnerable to an accident because if I’m unable to work for a period of time for any reason, then I would not be given sick pay. This would mean that from the moment I suffered any injury I would start building up the costs.
Other people might be more fortunate. The amount of sick pay you receive depends on your situation with your individual employer. Some will be generous while others will stick to the bear minimum. This is important because when the courts decide compensation then they will look at any earnings lost. So if you’re off work, but still earning through sick pay then it is likely that you won’t receive too much for this.
However, if you’re self employed then they will have to make an assessment about how much you might have earned. And for someone like me whose earnings often fluctuate significantly that can be difficult to assess.
Where you are obviously counts for a great deal as there will be different local firms around you, but it shouldn’t matter too much. There are many firms around the place who offer great deals for anyone regardless of where they’re based. Accident Advice Helpline is one of them and we can help you find an expert solicitor in Hamble or indeed anywhere else in the country. You’ll always get the same great deal that we offer to everyone.
The severity of the injury will affect how much you receive and also how long your case might take. The less severe injuries will generally attract a lower compensation fee, but the case will be more straightforward and will probably only take a few months to complete. A more serious injury might attract a bigger settlement but it could also be more complex and take longer if it goes to court. Some of the more complex cases have been known to last a number of years.
