One of the first things we’re asked at Accident Advice Helpline is about the level of compensation our clients can expect. This article will look at some of the ways in which we calculate compensation by taking a look at a real life example. It could be any kind of injury we’d look at here, but for the purposes of this piece we’ll examine the issues surrounding personal injury hip average compensation claims.
Personal injury hip average compensation
When you have a personal injury hip the average compensation claims depend very much on a couple of factors.
1. The severity of the injury: It stands to reason that the worse the injury is the more you will receive. The courts will assess the injury and determine how badly it has affected your life. For example, if it’s a long term problem which severely restricts movement and reduces quality of life then they will award a higher amount.
2. How much it has cost: They will also make a dryer, more mathematical assessment based on the costs you have incurred as a result of this injury. For instance, let’s imagine you have broken your hip which has forced you off work for several months. You may have a very understanding boss who will let you spend the time on full sick pay. If that’s the case then it’s time to celebrate, but otherwise you might find yourself on reduced pay or nothing at all. In that case the court would calculate how much you would have earned and come up with a number based on that.
A quick quote
When you visit Accident Advice Helpline’s website, you may notice a feature called the 30-second test. This is a compensation calculator which you can use to assess how much you might be awarded. When we look at a personal injury hip average compensation is calculated by this system in the same way as the courts would do.
This means that while our quote is only an estimate it is one that is based on what the courts might reasonably decide to offer. As such it is a realistic figure against which you could, for example, judge any future settlement offer that comes your way.
