Have you been injured in an accident in the last three years? If it was someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation, with Accident Advice Helpline perfectly placed to find you the right injury lawyer in Brentford. Road traffic accidents, slips, trips and falls and accidents at work are all covered by personal injury legislation.
It’s not just injuries that can be claimed for; if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, industrial disease, or any illness (such as MRSA or food poisoning), you may also be entitled to a payout.
Minor and major injuries can both be claimed for. While minor injuries, such as lacerations or whiplash, will see you receive no more than a few thousands pounds in compensation, major injuries that have a long-term negative impact on your life could see you get much more. When deciding how much you should receive, a judge will refer to current legal guidelines as well as historical cases of accident victims who have received similar injuries. Your current and potential future medical costs will be taken into account, as will any time away from work that has resulted in loss of earnings both now and in the future if you are unlikely to be able to work again. Should your home need to be adjusted or refitted in any way in order to make your life easier post-injury, these costs can also be refunded as part of your compensation equation.
Perhaps the largest part of your compensation award will be comprised of a lump sum for physical, emotional and psychological distress that you have suffered as a direct result of the accident and resulting injuries. The more traumatic the injury, the larger the award will be; some have run into millions or even tens of millions of dollars.
If you’re not sure of your eligibility for compensation, use our 30-second online test to get a better idea. In just a few clicks, you can confirm not only the legitimacy of your claim, but also generate an estimate of how much money your claim may be worth. Please note that due to the unique nature of claims, these estimated amounts cannot be guaranteed.
