    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Northampton

    If you are considering making a personal injury claim for compensation, you may find it difficult to determine whether you will receive a worthwhile settlement following winning your case. Compensation settlements are based on a variety of factors, and two claims that appear very similar could actually attract significantly different compensation awards.

    Your financial losses

    You may automatically think about the amount of money that will be awarded for your personal injuries. However, your financial losses and expenses can often be significant. Your financial losses may include:

    • Your medical treatment and assessment fees, including your doctor’s fees and fees for treatment such as physiotherapy
    • Your transportation and parking expenses
    • Your medication costs, including your prescription charges
    • Your lost earnings – if you have taken time off work
    • Your care and assistance expenses – if you have paid someone else to carry out household chores because you have been unable to perform them yourself

    The key to obtaining a large compensation settlement is ensuring that you are completely open with your accident lawyer in Northampton about the way in which you have been affected by your personal injury. Your lawyer will then be able to highlight areas of your claim and make appropriate investigations into your losses and expenses.

    In more serious cases, you may continue to suffer financial losses on an ongoing basis. In such cases, your accident lawyer in Northampton will be able to calculate your future losses and include them in your compensation settlement.

    Your pain and suffering

    In addition to your financial losses, you will be entitled to compensation for the injuries you have sustained. The assessment of your injuries will be based on a range of factors, including:
