“When life deals you lemons, you’d better start making lemonade”. It’s one of the more optimistic sayings we have in the world, but sometimes it’s just not enough. Sometimes accidents happen that nothing can make up for and all you can do is try to find something to make up for some of the damage that has been done. For this reason, this article will help you find out how to find a personal injury lawyer for even the most complex issues.
Types of claims
At Accident Advice Helpline, many of the accidents we see are, in relative terms, minor. Take for instance, the woman on our case studies page who was hurt in a car crash and suffered whiplash together with some dizziness. While not unpleasant, it is at least something she can get over and it’s also a personal injury claim which should only take a few months. The question of blame was fairly clear as were the extent of her injuries. But other issues are a little more challenging.
A complex case
Let’s imagine there has been prolonged physical impairment or even a mental issue caused through a brain injury. No amount of money can make up for the loss in quality of life in these situations, but the compensation which you should receive can at least soften the blow and make it easier to live in this new way.
However, these also tend to be the more complicated cases and it can take some time to work through all the issues.
The first is culpability. Often the other side will contest any assessment of blame and will fight their corner quite keenly. Even if they lose there is still the issue of working out how much compensation is appropriate. If you’ve sustained a long term injury, this compensation will take in not only the costs already incurred but also future loss of earnings. This will be calculated by looking at how badly you’ve been hurt and what you could have earned in the future had the accident not happened.
