Putting in a claim with Lichfield accident claim solicitors means you could be looking at a compensation payout to relieve some of the costs you incurred after your accident. Being injured through no fault of your own and then paying out for it is not fair, so by making a claim, some of those costs can be alleviated. Compensation can sound like a complicated matter as it varies from case to case, but there are some set factors which influence how much you could be looking at at the close of your compensation case.
Injuries and repairs
Much of the compensation debate lies with the extent of injuries sustained from the accident in question. In a case where you sustain a handful of cuts and bruises you will almost certainly find you are looking at a lower payout than another case which has injuries including broken bones and lacerations.
The same applies to any damage to vehicles. Small bumps on a roundabout will have a lower return than a full on collision. Although Lichfield accident claim solicitors take every case as seriously as the last, the amount of compensation will be reflective of these components.
Lichfield accident claim solicitors and winning the claim
The chances of success depend on various elements. Lichfield accident claim solicitors compile your case file by using all the evidence which is gathered at the beginning of the claim and then present it to the offending party. Sufficient evidence including photographs from the scene of the accident and eye witness accounts can strengthen your case, making it harder for the opposition to argue the facts.
In most circumstances your claim can be solved away from the court but it isn’t always possible. If the opposition does not agree with the terms stipulated by your solicitors, a judge may end up making the final decision during a court hearing.
