For understandable reasons, when it comes to making Milford Haven personal injury claims, most people are initially concerned about the amount of compensation they are likely to receive. Although compensation is not always the main reason that people decide to make Milford Haven personal injury claims, it is something that can be taken into consideration.
Types of compensation in Milford Haven personal injury claims
Many people don’t necessarily realise, when they initiate personal injury claims, that there are different types of compensation. Of course, when your claim is settled, you will receive a cheque for the sum that you are due. This is based on the settlement you and your solicitor reach with the liable third party. Although the components of your compensation may not make much difference to you as an individual; the details can provide you with important and useful information.
When it comes to Milford Haven personal injury claims, you are awarded compensation for specific injuries. If you take the Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test, you can find out how much compensation you are likely to receive for the type of injury you have sustained. However, as your solicitor will point out, amounts will vary depending on the severity of your injury.
A “finger injury” can be very different depending on the client. For example, one client may have dislocated their finger, another may have broken it, another may have had it amputated. While these are all finger injuries, they have different impacts on the individuals suffering the injury. As a result, different compensation amounts will be awarded.
To determine how much compensation your claim is likely to be worth, your solicitor will arrange for you to be assessed by an independent medical expert. They will look at the details of your injury, any pre-existing conditions, and will discuss with you the impact your injury has had on your day to day life. They will then write a report detailing their observations, and will make a recommendation for the amount of compensation you should receive in relation to your personal injury.
Your solicitor will then make sure that the amount of compensation you receive is a fair reflection, and they will try to counter any proposals made by the third party to reduce the amount.
