One of the most common questions we hear at Accident Advice Helpline is ‘how much might my compensation be worth’? This article will tell you how it’s calculated and why. If you have been injured in Kent, no win no fee* compensation may turn out to be the best option for you when considering a personal injury claim.
Kent no win no fee* compensation
When you log onto our website you’ll notice that we have a feature called the 30 second test. The aim of this is to tell you roughly how much compensation you might be entitled to very quickly, if you make a personal injury claim. It is not intended to by anything more than an estimate but it is something which you can use at an early stage to set goals.
When you complete the questionnaire you’ll be taken to a page which tells you roughly how much different types of claim fetch on average. This gives you a ball park figure. Of course your case is unique and there are certain characteristics which will play an important role in determining how much compensation you should be receiving. The important thing is to work out how much that should be, so the next step is to speak to an advisor.
When you complete the 30 second test we can have one of our advisor’s get in touch with you. This means they can talk through the intricacies of your case with you. They will be able to give you an answer on whether or not you have a good case to bring and hopefully a more accurate figure of what you should be looking for in terms of compensation. Remember, the more information we get from you at this stage the better positioned we will be to help, so it’s always important to tell us as much as you possibly can.
Why is this estimate important?
Of course none of our estimates will give you the final figure – that will depend on the attitude of the court, but it can give you a yard stick to go by. That can be useful if the other side comes back with a settlement offer. This happens in the majority of cases as they will work hard to find ways to reduce their costs. Their initial offer may turn out to be significantly lower than the amount you should be entitled to so it’s always worth having an estimate in mind so you know how to assess this offer. It can also help to keep your firm honest. Knowing how much you should be entitled to will help if you are offered less than that.
So if you’re looking for a no win no fee* compensation claim in Kent, give our team a call on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
