North Tyneside accident claims advice from our solicitors
If you have been injured in an accident, and are wondering if you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation, then North Tyneside accident claims advice from Accident Advice Helpline is what you require right now.
To find out whether or not you qualify to make a claim for your personal injury all you need to do is take our 30 second test. If you can answer a few simple questions about your accident, and the nature of the injuries you have sustained as a result, we will be able to tell you immediately, not only if you qualify, but also how much compensation you may be owed.
Amount of compensation
The account amount of compensation that you will be awarded depends on a variety of factors – one of our solicitors can discuss it with you in greater detail when you turn to them for North Tyneside accident claims advice. Each factor will be individual to you, so it is impossible to provide an accurate representation of the award at the outset of a claim.
For example, although you may have sustained a specific injury, which traditionally speaking commands a compensation amount of £3,000, you may be entitled to more if it transpires that there have been complications with your recovery. While some people may recover within a few weeks from such an injury, it may take you longer for some reason. This is one of the reasons why your accident solicitor will arrange for you to be assessed by an independent medical expert who will review your medical history and the injuries you have suffered from. They will be able to determine how long it will take you to recover from your injuries, and whether there is likely to be any on-going problems experienced as a result of them.
Your solicitor will also be able to take into account whether or not you have lost any money as a result of your injury. If you have had to take unpaid time away from work, either to recover, or as a result of having to attend hospital or other medical appointments, then this can also be recovered. A simple letter from your manager or HR department to confirm lost earnings will suffice as proof.
It may be that you have had to change roles as a result of your accident – perhaps you are no longer able to perform the tasks you did prior to your injury, and have had to take a pay cut as a result. If this is the case then a one-off payment in compensation of this reduced income can be made. Your solicitor will discuss this with you in greater detail if it is appropriate to your situation.
Out of pocket?
You can also make a claim for any out of pocket expenses you have had to make, for example, paying for someone to come and do your housework if you have been unable to do it.
