How will injury solicitors calculate my payout?
This is a very good question. The answer is injury solicitors will calculate your injury payout from the following information:
- How bad your injury is
- The length of recovery time from the injury
- The prognosis for the future
- The acceleration of any pre-existing conditions.
These four factors are the main determining factors in injury payout estimates. However, your total payout may also include special damages. Special damages are a calculation of all of your out-of-pocket expenses related to your injury and other financial hardships. So for example, where you might get a whiplash injury payout estimate of £4,000, on top of this your solicitor may seek an additional £1,000 to cover your expenses for the injury period.
