When it comes to personal injury compensation, how much do you think you are likely to receive as your settlement? ‘How much compensation could I get?’ is one of the questions we are most frequently asked here at Accident Advice Helpline, and often we don’t have an exact answer for the individuals who ask this. That’s because each and every single personal injury claim is unique, and as a result, the amount of compensation that you could receive for your claim varies from person to person. So when it comes to personal injury compensation, how much you receive depends on a variety of different factors.
What affects how much compensation you could receive?
When it comes to the question of personal injury compensation, how much you receive will depend on a variety of different things. For starters, Accident Advice Helpline will take into account the severity of your injuries, so if you have sustained life-changing injuries then you could find you’re eligible to receive a larger personal injury settlement than somebody who has suffered minor injuries which they will fully recover from. Generally speaking, more serious injuries attract larger settlements – so, for example, if you have suffered a brain injury after a fall from scaffolding at work, you could receive compensation for your injuries as well as your current and future loss of earnings. If you have suffered whiplash after a road traffic accident caused by another driver, you could be entitled to compensation for your loss of earnings for the few weeks you’ll need to take off work, as well as for your injuries.
Personal injury compensation – how much are you entitled to for medical expenses?
Whilst we’re lucky enough that here in the UK most of our medical expenses are covered by the NHS, there may be times you need to pay privately for treatment such as physiotherapy or alternative therapy – or you may need to pay for the cost of prescription medication. If this has happened to you then you may find you’re entitled to compensation for medical expenses. It’s important to keep any receipts relating to your expenses so that we can process these as part of your claim.
