    How much compensation for a non-fault accident?


    If you have been involved in an accident that was caused by someone else, and you are considering making a personal injury claim, one of the first questions you may be considering is ‘How much compensation for a non-fault accident?’

    This is a natural curiosity and one which is rooted in your personal experience. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, the severity or your injury and the financial implications of your experience, you may have very strong views about how much compensation you wish to receive.

    Compensation amounts for a non-fault accident

    If you are eligible to claim compensation, a legal team will work on your behalf to win a compensation amount deemed fair for your specific circumstances. If you are unsure about your eligibility, this can be checked using an online tool such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second calculator. This will also give you an idea of how much compensation you may be entitled to receive.

    When considering the question ‘How much compensation for a non-fault accident?’ you may already have a preconceived idea of how much this may be. The 30-second tool will provide you with an estimation so you can ensure that your expectations are realistic.

    Personal injury compensation amounts are determined by a number of factors. These may include:

    • The details of your injury – what part of your body has been affected and how severely? If your injury is considered minor and short-term, then you will likely receive less compensation than a grave injury such as a road traffic accident resulting in paralysis.
    • The financial impact of your injury. For some, the monetary implications following your accident will be minor, whereas others may get into financial difficulty. These monetary considerations may include a loss of earnings due to an inability to work, and medical expenses. Some people may require specific equipment such as a wheelchair, adaptations to their home, or round-the-clock care from a professional care worker. These costs can all be included in your claim.
    • The outlook – how long are you likely to suffer? Some severe injuries may heal quickly, and some minor injuries may be ongoing over the course of a lifetime. So it is important to also consider your prognosis. If your doctor advises that this is a long-term or even permanent condition, this will also likely affect your compensation amount.

    As you can see, the question of ‘How much compensation for a non-fault accident?’ is not necessarily a straightforward one. However, this need not complicate the process of making a claim for compensation following an accident that was not your fault.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we ensure that making a compensation claim is as stress-free as possible. In most cases, we are able to process your case via the telephone with the support of our highly trained, professional advisers.
