Many of the Lewes claims for personal injury compensation that we launch for our clients are related to road traffic accidents. They involve all sorts of vehicles, from cars and vans to buses and coaches, motorbikes, scooters, mopeds and pedestrians. Some injuries are relatively mild, such as a slight case of whiplash, although some road traffic accident victims lose limbs and/or their sight, and some of course are unfortunately killed.
According to statistics on the gov.uk website, in the last quarter of year ending 31st March 2014 the number of road traffic accident fatalities here in the UK totalled 380. The number of injuries of all severities for the whole year was 189,880.
All compensation claims for personal injuries, whether they are caused by road traffic accidents or slips, trips and falls, have to comply with certain factors in order to qualify for compensation. These factors are:
- Someone other than the injury victim(s) has to be to blame for the accident or circumstances that caused the injury;
- In order to substantiate that you were genuinely injured, you will need to be able to supply proof that you received medical attention for your injury; and
- In order to comply with personal injury claim legislation, the accident or incident that caused the injury must have taken place within the past three years.
Sizes of compensation awards for Lewes claims
With such a wide range of injuries involved in the Lewes claims with which we help people, the sums of compensation that are awarded to injury victims of road traffic accidents vary considerably from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of pounds. You can get an idea of the sum of money you could be awarded for your injury if you take our 30-second test. This is a quick online test that you can take here on this website.
First, you must locate our compensation calculator. You’ll find a copy on virtually every page of this website. Once you’ve found it, you then need to go about answering the four simple questions that it poses. We’ve made this as simple as possible by providing a set of dropdown boxes against each question, so it’s just a matter of picking out the most appropriate answers. Once you’ve done that, leave us a note of your name and a contact telephone number and the test is complete.
Hopefully, the answers that you supply to the questions will conform to the factors that qualify any personal injury claim for compensation. If they do, then you will be given an estimate of the size of the compensation award you might win.
