Injury settlements claims register

0

Every claim is different and you cannot guarantee how much compensation you will receive. The compensation awarded consists of amounts for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Wages lost because you had to take time off work as a result of the accident
  • Any other out-of-pocket expenses such as medical care or transport costs

The amount of compensation awarded will depend on the nature of your injury, but will also depend on your own personal circumstances. It will depend on whether the injury means that you will have to change your job, for instance.

How does the injury settlements claims register help?

Examples of the current level of compensation awards include:

  • Minor injuries: £1,000
  • Broken legs: £10,000
  • Back injuries: £50,000

However, the actual amounts of compensation awarded vary wildly even for similar injury types. A simple leg break claim could be settled for just £5,000 whereas a complex leg break that results in permanent damage could result in a compensation award of £50,000 or more.

The courts try to ensure that there is a level of consistency in the amounts that are awarded. They do this by keeping an injury settlements claims register which contains details of recent compensation awards. This means that, wherever possible, people with similar injuries and circumstances are awarded like levels of compensation.

How to maximise your chances of getting the full amount of compensation that your deserve

Although the injury settlements claims register contains details of recent compensation awards, this does not guarantee the amount you will receive because no two compensation claims are exactly the same.

The defendant solicitor’s job is to minimise the amount of your compensation award to protect their client. They will be trying to argue that your circumstances are not as bad as the circumstances of the cases in the register, and that as such, you do not deserve the amount suggested by the injury settlements claims register.

In addition, unless you are a solicitor you will not have access to the injury settlements claims register, so you will not know whether an offer of compensation is reasonable.
