If you’ve been involved in an accident in Knowsley, you may be feeling upset, distressed, in physical pain or even angry that your life has been disrupted by an injury caused by another person. These feelings are all understandable given your circumstances, but if you are in this situation then personal injury claim in Knowsley solicitors are in place to help.
Compensation exists to protect you when you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. If you have been involved in such an accident, then you are entitled to make a personal injury claim in Knowsley for compensation, as long as it also happened within the past three years and resulted in injuries requiring medical attention.
Compensation typically takes into account your injury type and severity, as well as:
- Medical expenses;
- Loss of earnings;
- Emotional impact of your accident and injuries;
- Care costs; and
- Specialist equipment costs.
For example, if you were involved in an accident that prevents you from working in the long term (or perhaps indefinitely), then your compensation amount should account for your loss of earnings to date and your loss of earnings into the future, including pay rises and pension contributions.
Whilst every case is different, you can get a good idea of how much you may be able to claim by using a compensation calculator such as the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second tool. In no time at all, you’ll have an estimated compensation amount to use for reference throughout the claims process.
What different types of accidents are there?
Just as compensation amounts vary, so do the accidents that could cause your injuries. Your Accident Advice Helpline injury claim in Knowsley solicitor will be able to help with:
- Road traffic accidents;
- Holiday accidents;
- Accidents at work;
- Medical negligence; and
- Slips, trips and falls.
If you have been involved in an accident, your injuries could range from minor to severe. In general, the more severe your injuries, the more you will be entitled to claim in compensation. For example, injuries could include:
- Head or brain injuries;
- Spinal injuries;
- Neck injuries;
- Broken bones; and
- Sprains and strains.
No matter what your injury type, you should not have to suffer alone following an accident that was not your fault.
