Have you been hurt in an accident within the last three years? If so, you could be entitled to compensation, but the big question is how much could you win? This blog will attempt to tell you how you can estimate the size of your compensation fee, and how you can then go about finding an injury attorney in Swadlincote who will help make sure you win it.
A 30-second test
If you go to the Accident Advice Helpline website, you’ll come across an interactive feature known as the 30-second test. This quick feature asks a few simple questions, such as:
- Did the accident happen in the last three years?
- Was it your fault?
- Where did it happen?
- Did you receive medical attention at the time?
Answer those questions and our system can tell you first of all whether you are entitled to make a claim, and secondly how much you might expect to receive. By entering your phone number, you can also get a call from one of our representatives to tell you more.
How is this calculated?
We assess the extent of any potential damages in the same way as any court will. We look at how bad the injury was and what effect it is having on your way of life. This could be in the form of restricted movement, an inability to do tasks that you used to take for granted, or perhaps loss of earnings.
In addition, claims are also assessed on how much the injury has cost you. This could be the cost of repairs, medical treatment, medical costs or anything else directly related.
As part of your preparation, it is worth getting an idea of how much it has cost you. Show any bills for medical treatment you might have built up. If there is damage to property, then get at least two estimates for how much the repairs might cost. This will give you more information about how much the accident has set you back in financial terms.
While the 30-second test is an easy, quick way to get a quote, this is only a guide and is based on somewhat limited information. For a more accurate assessment, speak to a member of our team. This is free, with no obligation to keep using our services.
Give our team a call and spend a few minutes going through your claim, after which we’ll help you make a decision.
