When you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident, and are considering claiming compensation, it is sometimes a decision based upon whether it is worth making a claim or not; but how do you know? Well, here at Accident Advice Helpline we have used our wealth of experience to develop a user-friendly personal injury claims calculator to help you decide whether to progress or not. We call it the 30-second test.
Why use a personal injury claims calculator?
When you are already suffering with the pain and upset that inevitably follows an accident, you may be shy of pursuing a lengthy compensation claims process if you don’t know what is waiting for you at the end of the road. A personal injury claims calculator is a quick and easy way of checking whether or not you can claim, and also of getting a ballpark figure of how much you are likely to be awarded.
What questions does a personal injury claims calculator ask?
Amongst other things, the personal injury claims calculator we at Accident Advice Helpline have devised focuses on four key questions. These are:
- Did your injury occur in the last three years?
- Was the accident that caused the injury someone else’s fault?
- What part of your body got injured?
- Did you see a doctor or seek medical attention?
The answers you give to this will enable our claims calculator to make a quick and hassle-free assessment of your situation. It will also give you an estimate as to how much you will be looking at claiming. We call it the 30-second test because it should take you no more than 30 seconds to complete, and it will return an instant answer to you, based on our extensive knowledge of claim amounts that have been settled for similar cases.
Once you have established that you have a strong case to claim and you know how much you could be getting in compensation, the personal injury claims calculator has done it’s job and you are free to decide what to do next. If you do want to pursue a claim, then you can call us and get some expert advice from one of our friendly and professional advisers.
