    Injury lawyers in Northwood


    Personal injury settlements are becoming an increasingly common part of the drapery which creates the UK’s current legal landscape. Putting a precise figure on average personal injury settlements can be rather problematic however, with injury lawyers in Northwood operating in their own ways across what is a fundamentally broad topic.

    There are many things to consider when trying to determine a likely payout amount.

    The nature of the accident

    Both the characteristics of and the circumstances surrounding each personal injury claim will be taken into account by any legitimate legal practitioners that you consult. Ultimately, the scale of the payout depends on the scale of the accident.

    Average personal injury settlements tend to fluctuate greatly depending on how severe an injury is, not to mention how detrimental it ultimately proves to be to an individual’s health, wellbeing, livelihood and ability to carry on with their life as before.

    Averages from injury lawyers in Northwood

    • Minor whiplash: Between £2,500 and £5,000 (given that a full recovery is noted within two years);
    • Trivial scarring: Between £1,000 and £2,000;
    • Serious scarring: Between £5,300 and £10,000 for males and between £10,000 and £17,500 for females;
    • Loss of a front tooth: Between £1,300 and £2,300; and
    • Complete loss of one or more sense: Around £26,600.

    Circumstances surrounding the accident

    Whether or not a claimant is personally responsible for their accident (no matter how slightly) is a point upon which the compensatory figure will likely ultimately be based. The legal definition of the term accident is characteristically broad, although the chances are that if you feel you have a claim then you do, in which case Accident Advice Helpline would love to hear from you.
