If you spend time reading some of the more lurid stories on the internet, you’ll find some quite remarkable personal injury compensation varieties being awarded. But for a more realistic indication about what you might be awarded, a much better option is to contact Accident Advice Helpline. We’ll give you a good idea of how much you might be awarded if you win your case.
There are many incredible sounding stories about people – often in the USA – making ridiculous compensation claims and being awarded huge sums. We hear things such as burglars who claim against a home owner because they hurt themselves while trying to steal their belongings – or then again there is the story of a woman who claimed against MacDonalds for scalding her lip on coffee and was awarded several million dollars.
However, while some of these stories might be amusing they do not paint a realistic picture – at least not in this country.
A 30 second test
When people contact Accident Advice Helpline, one of the first questions they want to know is what the personal injury compensation varieties will be if they win their case. To give people a reasonable idea, therefore, we created a 30 second test, which is a very simple mechanism by which you can find out whether or not you have a good case and how much it might be worth all within half a minute.
About personal injury compensation varieties
You might think that this all sounds a little bit too easy – how can we second guess what the court will offer all from a few questions? Well, it is true that our estimate is nothing more than a rough guide, but it is based on our own considerable experience in this area and we also make our calculations using the same logic as the law courts. Compensation is generally calculated by looking at how bad the injury was, and what it has cost in purely monetary terms.
This allows us to come up with a figure that we think is reasonable as a goal to shoot for. It is a good idea to have this in mind partly because it could prove useful as a guide if the other side comes along and offers a settlement. It is also something against which you can judge the final settlement. If you get a figure which is a long way below that estimate then you’re entitled to ask why – and you might want to seek redress from your own solicitor.
At Accident Advice Helpline we’re confident of our ability to get you the best possible outcome, which is why we’re more than happy to have you see this figure and have something to aim for.
