How much compensation will I receive if I use an injury lawyer in Pluckley?
Anyone who is injured in an accident that was not their fault, no matter where they are from, can make a personal injury compensation claim using an injury lawyer in Pluckley.
How much compensation can an injury lawyer in Pluckley secure for me?
This will depend on several factors, as every accident, every injury and every person is different. They need to consider:
- The severity of your injury;
- Whether you are likely to recover short term, long term or not at all;
- How much stress and anxiety you have been caused;
- Loss of earnings, particularly if you are the main breadwinner of your household;
- Cost of replacement equipment and accessories;
- Private medical treatment;
- Extra travel costs;
- Cost of care if your are no longer able to look after yourself; and
- Any other cost or loss which was a direct result of the accident.
An injury lawyer in Pluckley will account for all of these items when they are making your personal injury compensation claim.
Once the amount is decided, who will pay me?
The person who caused the accident is the person who you claim compensation from, but in the majority of cases they are insured in some form or another and it is the insurance companies that settle the claims. It depends on the type of accident though, and could be:
- A motor insurance company if you have a road traffic accident;
- Public liability insurers if you had a slip, trip or fall or were injured in a public place;
- Employers’ liability insurance if your accident was work-related;
- Criminal injuries are dealt with by the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority, a government funded scheme to compensate blameless victims of violent crime; and
- Professional indemnity insurance would cover most medical negligence claims.
