Are you wondering ‘how much compensation can I claim for a non fault accident’?
If you think you have grounds to make a personal injury compensation claim, because you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, then you will need a personal injury, or accident solicitor. A solicitor will be able to give you advice on the question ‘how much compensation can I claim for a non fault accident?.
You have three years in which to file a claim after the date of your accident. Similarly, if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease, then you have three years from the date when you were first told by your doctor that you had the condition in which to claim compensation from your employer.
How much compensation can I claim for a non fault accident?
Everyone who has grounds for making a personal injury claim asks this question. Many people are surprised when they are told that it is impossible to say precisely how much the claim could be worth. This is because all accidents happen in unique circumstances as are your personal circumstances. For example, how much you earn and how many days you were unable to work due to your injuries. All this information comes into the equation when compensation is calculated.
Your accident solicitor will be able to say approximately how much compensation you can claim for your injury by consulting “The Judicial Studies Guidelines.” However, when compensation is decided upon, past cases which are similar to yours are taken into consideration, so there is no way of knowing beforehand precisely how much compensation you will get if your claim is successful.
The guidelines for each type of injury are not particularly specific. For example, for the loss of a thumb, you might get between £23,250 and £36,000. As you can see, there is a broad range, and so you cannot say exactly how much anyone might get.
We can tell you that Accident Advice Helpline lawyers fight for maximum compensation for their clients.
What does compensation cover for injuries?
Personal injury compensation usually covers such things as: –
- loss of earnings;
- the pain, distress and suffering caused by the injury; and
- medical treatment and costs as well as expenses related to your injury.
