Before you make road accident claims in Craven it is worthwhile finding out more about the claims process, what you will need in order to make a claim and how much you are likely to get if your claim is successful. All of this should help you to decide if it is worth your while to make a claim or if you should just stick to claiming on your own insurance.
If you know that you have the evidence and are able to make a compensation claim against the other party in a road accident, here is some more information about compensation amounts and how you can decide if it is worth your while.
Know that compensation ranges in amount
If you have had a serious road accident and sustained a neck injury then you will probably be able to claim something back from the other party for your injuries. However, this will depend on a range of factors that govern how much the injury will cost you, and how bad it is. For a more minor injury where you are able to carry on at work you may get £1,000 or you might get £100,000 for a neck injury that will affect you for the rest of your life.
Know that you can claim expenses
You may be awarded £1,000 for your injury, but you can also get more compensation if you keep records of any expenses incurred directly by your injury. This means things like loss of earnings, transport to hospital visits and help around the house whilst you are incapacitated. Just keep a record of everything you have spent and this can be included with your claim.
Use no win no fee* solicitors
If you are using a solicitor that works on a no win no fee* basis then it doesn’t matter how much you can claim, as you don’t have to pay the solicitor’s legal fees unless you are awarded an amount of money.
