Have you been injured using faulty gym equipment? Then you’ll be wondering ‘how much compensation am I going to get for a sprain?’
Many people like to use the gym and expect to be safe while doing so. It’s the responsibity of the owner or manager of the gym to make sure the equipment is maintained regularly to avoid accidents. It’s also important that an induction programme is compulsory for users so that they don’t hurt themselves.
When you have been injured in an accident which was no fault of yours, it is natural to ask the question “How much compensation am I going to get for a sprain?”
However, no one can tell you with certainty how much you will get. This is because every claim is different just as every accident is unique. Your personal circumstances also have to be taken into account, such as how much money you have lost because you were unable to work because of your injury.
How much compensation am I going to get for a sprain?
To answer the question “how much compensation am I going to get for a sprain? you could visit our website and take the thirty second test which will give you a rapid estimate of the amount of compensation you could get for your injury or illness. However this is only an estimate. All you have to do is click on your mouse several times to get this estimated sum, and this will only take you about half a minute (hence the name, the thirty second test).
Can a solicitor tell me how much compensation am I entitled to?
A solicitor can tell you how much compensation you could get for your injury. He or she will need to refer to the Judicial Studies Board publication, “The Judicial Studies Guidelines.” This gives amounts for minor, moderately severe and very severe injuries, so if your solicitor has your medical report, he or she could tell you how much you could expect to get if your claim were successful.
However when it comes to saying how much compensation you could get for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injury, he or she would have to do some research into how much was awarded in the past to people with similar injuries to yours. If you want an answer to the question “how much compensation am I going to get”, you will have to wait some time for an answer that will still only be an estimate.
