We can help if you need a helpline for a traffic accident in East Hampshire. People often wonder why some victims get much more compensation for their car accident claim, than others, but it is not just the injuries you are paid for. Let’s look at some varying scenarios of why the amounts differ.
We will use the examples of a young parent, a middle aged man, and a pensioner to shoew how the amounts for car accident claims can vary so much. They will all have the same injuries, whiplash, a leg broken in several places and a wrist injury. They will all be treated medically in a similar fashion, but the effects on their life will be totally different.

Let’s assume that the young parent is employed and because of the severity of the leg injury is unable to return to work for four months. In that time his other injuries have healed, but the whiplash has left him with a weakness in his back. As his work is in a warehouse and involves heavy lifting, he is no longer able to do that particular job and has to take a lower paid one that will not affect his back.
His partner does not drive, so when visiting hospital he was having to use taxis to get him there and back, and he had to pay out extra prescription charges for painkillers. He did get statutory sick pay from work, but his income was greatly reduced. All his expenses and his loss of income can be reclaimed, plus the drop in income for future years can be calculated and be reclaimed.
A middle aged man making a car accident claim
The middle aged man is a web designer whose employment contract says the employer will pay him full pay for the first six months of being off work, so he loses no income. The only extra things he has to pay for are taxis and prescriptions.
A pensioner making a car accident claim
Pensioners in the UK get prescriptions free, so all the pensioner would have to pay for is taxi fares, and of course their income would not be affected in any way.
Getting the right help for your compensation claim
All of these victims could receive a similar amount for their injuries, but a totally different amount for the way it has affected their life, and for the cost and losses the accident has caused.
