The calculation of compensation for a whiplash injury proceeds in a manner very similar to any other personal injury claim, although there is a degree of additional skill required because whiplash injuries tend to be very subjective.
A whiplash claim calculator will be the very best way to calculate the value of your claim online. It is possible for you to learn about how the court processes and values whiplash claims yourself, but this will require a great deal of effort and technical reading and might in any case be impossible without legal training. By contrast, a whiplash claim calculator such as that on Accident Advice Helpline website has been designed by professionals so that it reflects the decisions which the courts ordinarily make for similar types of claims. Moreover, the whiplash claim calculator will ask specific questions which identify whether you have a valid legal claim at all, which helps to protect you from getting your hopes up too soon.
What factors are involved in calculating a settlement for an injury claim in Loch Awe
In general, a court will assess damages along the lines of two broad headings:
- General damages – these are an estimate of the easily calculated financial losses which result from the fact of an accident. They are generally tied to some sort of simple mathematics, for instance, the number of weeks an injured person will be off work due to the injury.
- Special damages – this part of the award compensates the victim for more intangible factors, such as pain, suffering and loss of amenity, things which are more difficult to define and resist simple calculation. This part of the award is more difficult to calculate and requires experience and expertise.
The whiplash claim calculator will ask you for some details to allow it to calculate as precisely as possible the sum of damages likely to be paid as general damages. However, special damage is difficult to predict for whiplash claims because the injury is notoriously subjective and difficult to prove.
Despite all of this, because of the extensive number of whiplash incidents which reach the courts it has been possible to develop a whiplash claim calculator which is surprisingly accurate in broad estimates. Best of all, a typical user will only take a matter of minutes to fill out the injury claim calculator.
