Like many other law firms (or claims management companies) that specialise in personal injury claims here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have a compensation calculator on our website. This calculator is also known as a our 30 second test.
By completing the necessary information it can tell you almost immediately whether you are entitled to make a claim based on your injuries and how much compensation you are likely to receive if your claim is a success.
While this calculator has been designed in collaboration with our solicitor in Herne Hill we accept it is by no means perfect.
Calculating Compensation is not a science
Our solicitor in Herne Hill feels it is important for you to know that calculating how much compensation you are likely to receive is not a science. And we agree with them. It is not simply a case of saying “if you broke your arm you will receive a certain amount of money”. There is no text book that will simply give your solicitor in Herne Hill a magical figure.
The truth of the matter is that the entire process is more complicated than that and this is often why you are best off using the services of a solicitor in Herne Hill when you are trying to make a claim for compensation.
An expert solicitor in Herne Hill
The best way to find out precisely how much compensation you could be due is to speak to a solicitor in Herne Hill.
This expert solicitor in Herne Hill will be able to discuss with you every single aspect of your case including precisely what happened and who is likely to be liable for the accident occurring. They will be able to gather all of the necessary evidence to help establish your case, as well as medical records which illustrate the injuries you have suffered.
Once all of the evidence has been gathered (including photographs of the accident scene and, where necessary, witness statements) your solicitor in Herne Hill will be able to assess the amount of compensation you are likely to be due by comparing your situation to previous case law.
Your expert solicitor in Herne Hill will also arrange for you to see an independent medical expert who will assess your injuries and determine how much you are likely to remain affected by them over the next few weeks, months or longer. The longer the impact of your injuries is likely to affect you the more compensation you are likely to receive.
Equally, your solicitor in Herne Hill will encourage you to take into account other factors such as whether or not you have lost earnings and income as a result of your injuries. You will also be able to put in a claim for out of pocket expenses.
All of these factors taken into account will be what determines how much compensation you are likely to be awarded. No matter how good the software, no programme can calculate that for you.
