To judge from some of the advertisements that you see doing the rounds, suffering an accident is little more than a minor inconvenience and one that leads to a nice compensation fee at the end of it. However, if you’ve suffered an accident and are looking for a personal injury lawyer, the stakes couldn’t be much higher.
What we do
At Accident Advice Helpline, we often come across people who have suffered an injury at one time or another. The truth is that this injury can often have a severe impact on their quality of life. Not only can it impair their movement, but it can also interrupt their career, which is why having compensation can be crucial in helping people get their lives back on track.
How compensation is calculated
When a case goes to court, compensation is calculated by looking at how badly you have been hurt, how much it has cost and any money you’ve missed out on as a result of your injuries.
Naturally more serious injuries which leave you incapacitated over a long period of time will involve a more complicated calculation and as a result will probably result in a slightly larger claim. But likewise, they will probably take longer to settle. Some cases, such as those involving brain injuries can drag on for several years as sides argue over blame and how much the compensation should be.
If the brain injury is so bad that it means the victim is unable to return to work on a permanent process, then calculating how much money they have lost out on due to their inability to work takes into account not only what they’ve missed in the past but everything they could have potentially earned in the future, which is where big sums of money come in.
