Are you puzzling over the question ‘how much compensation do you claim for accidents?’
The first thing to know is that you do not make a claim for a specific figure yourself. With legal advice and help you make a claim for compensation and your compensation settlement is decided having regard to several different factors.
Your injuries and their effect on your daily life and future are taken into account along with out of pocket expenses and loss of earnings.
This is why it’s so important to have good legal advice from a law firm that specialises in personal injury compensation claims.
Accident Advice Helpline is such a firm. We employ the finest lawyers who win their clients maximum compensation and they work on a no-win, no-fee basis.
How much compensation do you get for an injury?
This is a common question, but far too general a one to be answered. As stated, it depends on the type of injury and its severity. For example, if you suffered brain damage or damage to your spinal cord in an accident that was not your fault, you may receive a very large settlement. If, on the other hand you broke a finger in the accident, and it healed fully within weeks or months, you would expect to get less in compensation.
How much compensation do you claim for accidents?
You cannot expect a precise answer if you ask your solicitor; how much compensation do you claim for accidents? Your Accident Advice Helpline lawyer will claim your maximum entitlement, of that you can be sure. It takes time to calculate this and even when your solicitor has all the facts and documentation regarding your claim, he or she can only give you an estimate.
Your solicitor will have to do some research into the awards given in cases which are similar in nature to yours and he or she will also have to consult the Judicial Studies Board guidelines in conjunction with your medical report and your doctor’s prognosis.
You may be advised to delay your claim until you are fully recovered, as the longer it takes to recover, the more compensation you are entitled to. If you need to file a claim quickly, then your doctor will be asked to estimate how long it could take you to fully recover, or if you are expected to recover fully.
