Some common question about compensation claims.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we understand how confused anyone making a compensation claim can become. They usually have a number of questions to ask about the process. Any personal injury lawyer in Bourn will be able to give you advice but here are a few of the more common questions that we are frequently asked on a daily basis.
What will a personal injury lawyer in Bourn do for me?
Taking action to claim compensation is a legal process and not something that you can easily do yourself. Your personal injury lawyer in Bourn will handle all aspects of the case including an arrangement for you to see a medical practitioner. Your personal injury in Bourn will have many years of experience and specialist, legal knowledge about your accident and the injury that it has caused you. Getting an experienced lawyer is vital if you wish to pursue a successful claim.
How much compensation will I get?
Once your personal injury lawyer has the full details of your case, they will be able to calculate the compensation you are entitled to; they may well offer you a guideline figure by using a compensation claim calculator. They will always fight for the best result for you and when offering a figure they will consider the following:
- The injury or injuries you suffered as a result of the accident.
- Any additional costs that have been created after the accident including travel costs, home help, childcare etc.
- Medical costs and future needs will also be considered.
- Income that has been lost as a result of you being unable to work.
Do I have to go to court?
Many claimants do not have to go to the court themselves. This is something that your personal injury lawyer will decide once they have full details of your case. In truth only the more complicated cases end up in court and many cases handled by national companies such as Accident Advice Helpline can be completed over the telephone.
Sometimes claimants, particularly those with severe injuries will be asked to attend a separate medical assessment with an independent practitioner. This may seem like an inconvenience at the time, but it will help your case by confirming your injuries and may well have a positive impact as to the outcome.
