If you have ever been involved in an accident in Norfolk, you are probably feeling upset, distressed, in physical pain or even angry that your life has been disrupted by an accident caused by another person. These feelings are all understandable given your circumstances – and if you are in this situation, you will need to know how to find a good injury solicitor in Knowsley.
Compensation is there to protect you, when you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. If you have been involved in such an accident, then you are entitled to find a good injury solicitor in Knowsley – as long as it also happened in the past three years and resulted in injuries requiring medical attention.
Compensation typically takes into account your injury type and severity, as well as:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of earnings
- Emotional impact of your accident and injuries
- Care costs
- Specialist equipment costs
For example, if you were involved in an accident that prevents you from working in the long term (or perhaps indefinitely), then your compensation amount should account for your loss of earnings to date and your loss of future earnings – including pay rises and pension contributions.
Whilst every case is unique, you can get a rough idea of how much you may be able to claim by using a compensation calculator, such as the Accident Advice Helpline 30 second tool. In no time at all, you’ll have an estimated compensation amount to use for reference throughout the claims process.

If you have been involved in an accident, your injuries could range from minor to severe. In general, the more severe your injuries, the more you will be entitled to claim in compensation. For example, injuries could include:
- Head or brain injuries

- Neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Sprains and strains
No matter what your injury type, you should not have to suffer alone following an accident that was not your fault.
