    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Welcome to Accident Advice Helpline’s local blog – this is a chance to find out more about the specific way in which you can find a personal injury lawyer who can help you claim the compensation to which you could be entitled.

    However, before we go looking for a personal injury lawyer in Beamish perhaps it’s a good idea to start with what you might get at the end – the compensation for your injury.

    A long winding road

    Any claim for compensation is a journey in itself and that journey can take a very long time. It can be comforting, therefore, to know what you’re likely to get out of it when you start.

    That’s the idea behind one of the more interesting features on our website. We call it the 30-second test and it is, in short, a way to find out how much compensation you might be entitled to receive in just half a minute.

    Now you’re possibly going to say that this is too short a time to really know how much compensation you might be entitled to and you’d be right to an extent. This is a very early rough estimate and the final figure may be different, but it is a realistic figure and to understand how we come to it you have to know how the courts decide the compensation that they dole out.

    About your claim

    Assuming for a moment that you have been through the entire process of making a claim and have won your case. The court will now decide how much compensation they feel is appropriate.

    They will look firstly at the severity of the injury. It stands to reason that something relatively minor such as whiplash, which is painful but not necessarily permanent, will attract a smaller figure than something more long lasting such as a broken leg or brain injury.

    They will also decide how much this accident has cost you, both in the past and in the future by looking at incidental costs such as travel expenses and so on. as well as loss of earnings. If the injury is permanent then they will extrapolate into the future to see how much it has potentially set you back in earnings potential.
