When you want to make a Hammersmith and Fulham accident at work claim, and would like some idea of how much your compensation could be, there is no way of knowing whose injury claim calculator will be the most accurate, because there is no way of knowing how much you will be awarded.
All Accident Advice Helpline, and anyone else, can do when you want to make a Hammersmith and Fulham accident at work claim, is to give you an estimate of how much compensation you could be awarded.
When you are making a Hammersmith and Fulham accident at work claim, the figures are based on previous awards
Estimates are usually based on previous awards made for similar injuries, but some sites will use the lowest and highest as their range of awards. This is not really fair to the prospective claimants, as there will always be claims that are exceptional, that for some reason or another will be awarded a very high level of compensation for their particular injury, and this distorts the amounts these sites are quoting.
This can give false hope to innocent victims of the level of compensation they will receive, but some unethical companies are not concerned about that, they just want you to use them for your Hammersmith and Fulham accident at work claim.
Biggest is not always best
It is up to the law firm or claim management company as to how they calculate the figures for their compensation calculators, and a comparison of 14 different sites for a severe whiplash injury showed a variation starting at £8750 to £82500.
It is not that the one quoting the highest figure is any better than the one quoting the lowest, they are just being unrealistic and trying to attract business in this way.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we put a lot of work and effort into being realistic about your compensation expectations, as do not want you to be under the impression that you will get a very high amount, when in reality you will end up with something more modest.
The different types of compensation calculator
There are two main types of injury claim calculator available, the picture sort and the information sort.
The pictures ones show a body, whether in skeletal or human form, you click on the part of the body that is injured and up pops a table of quotes, usually showing the differences between a mild and severe injury. That’s fine, providing you understand how mild or severe you injury is. Not all of us practise medicine so not all of us will understand the severity of our injuries and could therefore read totally the wrong figure.
The information ones ask you for basic details about the accident and about your injury, then within a few seconds, lets you know an estimated figure. This is how our 30-second test works, 4 questions on a drop down menu, simple and fast to get a realistic estimate of your compensation.
