Would you like to see a personal injury compensation quote? If so, all you have to do is log onto our website and we can have one ready within a few minutes. We call it the 30 second test and in this article we’re going to look a little more closely at how it all works.
Getting a personal injury compensation quote
If you spend a few minutes reading through some of the case studies and testimonials on our site, one of the more common threads people talk about is our compensation calculator or 30 second test.
This is a free online tool which allows you to see at a glance an approximate idea of how much compensation you might be awarded. All you have to do is enter a few basic details such as, where you were hurt, if it was your fault or when it happened and we’ll make a calculation about what your personal injury compensation quote should be.
It’s nice to be able to see this figure so early in the process, but you’re entitled to ask where does that figure come from and how can you trust it?
How we work
When calculating any personal injury compensation quote we work in the same way as the law courts. We look at how badly you’ve been hurt – the more serious injuries naturally tend to bring with them a higher level of payment – and how much it has cost you.
For example, an injury might conceivably force you off work for a prolonged period of time restricting your ability to earn money. You might also have been paying out money for travel or medical treatment – this will all be taken into consideration when we decide how much we think your claim could be worth.
What are the flaws?
Of course, the figure we get from the 30 second test is far from perfect. It is an estimate based on some basic information and the more details we have of you then the more accurate we can make the test. So, to get a better idea it might be worth contacting our helpline and speaking to one of our experts. Let them know any details about the injury and make a note of any costs you’ve incurred as a result. This will allow them to make a more accurate assessment based on this information.
Why is it important?
Of course whatever happens our estimate can be nothing more than that – a rough guide based on what we know about personal injury law and what we know about your case. The final number may be different from our personal injury compensation quote but it does give you a good guide for what you should aim for.
