Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we deal with personal injury claims in Mole Valley. This means that we are able to help you claim compensation for injuries caused by the negligent actions of another person. On this page, we are going to take a little look at what compensation means, and how much you may be entitled to.
What is compensation?
Compensation is, contrary to popular belief, not a method to get huge amounts of cash ‘for nothing’. Compensation, in British law at least, is to ‘make things right’. It is there to ensure that a person is not left out of pocket due to the injuries caused by another person.
When you make personal injury claims in Mole Valley, you will be asked to submit details of the financial losses that you have suffered. If your claim for compensation for your injuries is successful, these financial losses can be recovered. We are, unfortunately, unable to guarantee a 100% accurate amount as to the amount of compensation that you may be entitled to. However, we are pretty good at giving estimates.
What financial losses can you claim for?
As mentioned previously, your compensation will partly be based around the amount of financial loss that you have suffered. This may, for example, include the following:
- Loss of income. Just because you have been injured, it does not mean that your bills are just going to stop. You still need to pay them, even if you are not working. If you do not pay them, you will need to pay late fees. The bills can rack up pretty quickly as a result. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can claim back each and every penny from the insurance company of the person or company who is at fault.
- Medical expenses. Sure, with the NHS there is not a lot you are going to need to pay in terms of medical expenses. However, you will, of course, also need to pay a small amount of cash for certain treatments, particularly those which involve medical equipment, or even medication. We can help you claim back the money you are entitled to.
- Travel expenses, for example, if you now need to take a bus as you can’t drive or, perhaps, travel expenses to and from medical expenses.
