Have you recently been involved in an accident? Perhaps a road traffic accident, an accident in your workplace or a slip, trip or fall in a public space? Did you sustain some sort of injury as a direct result of that accident? If so, you may be entitled to compensation – to start a claim, and get an idea of how much compensation in Merseyside you may stand to win, call Accident Advice Helpline.
Our team can assist you with every aspect of the process of making a claim. During that initial phone call, one of our expert advisors will let you know whether or not you have a legitimate case and provide an estimate of how much you may stand to win if you’re successful (please note that any figures are estimates and cannot be guaranteed). If you decide to go ahead with your claim, we’ll set you up with a personal injury solicitor who will take it from there. You’re under no obligation to proceed, and if you choose not to that’s fine.
How much compensation in Merseyside you could win
If you’re thinking about making a claim, chances are you’re also wondering how much money you could get. While we’re able to estimate this, each case is unique and so we have no guarantees. There are a number of factors that determine how much compensation you receive at the end of your case, and there are things you can do to make sure you receive the maximum amount.
The first element of your compensation payout will consist of a lump sum for the actual injuries you sustained. Some injuries, such as concussion or whiplash, have ‘industry standard’ payouts but there can be variations within this dependent on the severity of the injury and the consequences it has had for your life. As a general rule, you’ll receive more compensation if your injury is more severe.
You may also be able to claim out of pocket expenses on top of this lump sum if your injury has caused you to lose money. If you needed to take time off work unpaid, for example, and missed out on wages, you can recover this as part of your claim. You may also be able to claim for medical expenses, transport costs or childcare.
