Why would I want to make a claim for compensation?
You might want to make a claim for compensation if you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault. If that is the case then your personal injury lawyer can help start the legal process for you and keep you updated as things progress.
What can I claim for?
Your personal injury lawyer will be able to discuss the specifics of your case with you in detail when you decide you want to progress with your claim but generally speaking people make a claim for the following things:Open Claim Calculator
- Compensation for the injury itself – admittedly no amount of money is going to change the fact that you have been injured, but sometimes the money you receive can help you recover. There is also often a sense of justice that the person responsible for any injury you have sustained has had to “pay the price” for their recklessness.
- Cover of loss of earnings – being injured may result in you having to take time away from work. This could mean that you are forced to take statutory sick pay instead of your usual wages which will have a significant impact on your income. You may even find that you have to retire on medical grounds, or you may be told that your employer is unable to extend your contract if you were in a probationary period. Whatever the situation, your personal injury lawyer will be able to assess the situation and help you make a claim for anything like this that may have been affected.
- Out of pocket expenses – suffering some form of personal injury may mean that you have had to make payments for items you would not necessarily have done otherwise. For example, you may have had to pay for medical prescriptions or treatment, or covered the cost of travelling to various appointments with health care professionals (including an appointment with an independent medical expert which we will arrange for you). Providing you have kept details of these expenses, as well as receipts where appropriate, your personal injury lawyer will be able to ensure that these costs are also recovered when it comes to negotiating your compensation settlement.
How much can I claim?
In terms of the amount of compensation you will receive it is largely dependent on the additional factors that need to be taken into account such as loss of earnings and out of pocket expenses.
However, there are standard amounts payable for certain injuries. To find out more you can take our 30-second test which will calculate how much your claim could be worth.
