    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Personal injury claim solicitors in West Oxfordshire


    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our job is to help you get your hands on the compensation that you are entitled to. On this page, we are going to talk a little bit about the amount of compensation you may be able to claim when you work with our personal injury claim solicitors in West Oxfordshire.

    What is the purpose of compensation?

    Compensation in the United Kingdom is a touch more sensible than other countries. Whilst you may hear stories of Americans being offered vast amounts of compensation for the most minor of injuries, that is not the case in the United Kingdom. Compensation in the United Kingdom is intended to reimburse you for any financial losses that you may have suffered as a result of the accident. This does not mean that you will not be awarded a huge amount of compensation, but you do have to prove that you are entitled to that amount.

    How much compensation are you entitled to?

    Sadly, without our personal injury claim solicitors in West Oxfordshire looking at your case, we will be unable to tell you exactly how much compensation you may be entitled to. As you may well know, each and every case is different. Sure, there may be similarities between a case e.g. slipping on a pavement slab is the same no matter where it happened, but the financial outcome will be drastically different.

    The amount of compensation that you are able to claim will be based upon your provable financial losses. Whilst you may, in some cases at least, be able to claim compensation due to the pain & suffering of the accident, the amount of money that you will be able to claim in this regard will be rather limited. Losses that you may be able to claim include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • Loss of income. If you have suffered an injury, it is likely that you will need some time off work. You will be able to claim compensation for these lost wages. In addition to this, you may also be able to claim compensation for income that you lost in the future e.g. if you can no longer follow a selected career path due to your injuries.
    • Medical expenses. This includes the cost of medication and medical equipment. If your injury is serious, you may even be able to claim compensation for the cost of renovating your home.
    • Travel expenses and childcare costs if you need to make changes in your day to day life due to your injuries.
