Making road accident claims in Leicestershire is easier with us
According to government statistics, the number of injuries and fatalities on Britain’s roads is falling year on year. However, knowing this does not help if you and your family have been personally affected by a road traffic accident. Money is also little consolation if you or someone you love has been seriously injured; but it can help you cope with your changed circumstances. Making road accident claims in Leicestershire is one way people can access justice and receive compensation for what has happened to them.
The compensation you will receive after a successful claim will normally cover two main areas.
Firstly, you will get a sum of money calculated according to the severity of your injuries and the prognosis for your recovery. If you are likely to need ongoing treatment for a longer period, or even care for life, you will of course receive more than if you had suffered from minor whiplash or cuts and bruises.
Secondly, you should also receive a sum that reimburses you for out of pocket expenses you have had to cope with as a result of being involved in the accident. The kinds of expenditure you could claim back are items like prescription charges, transport costs and additional childcare if you have needed it.
You may also be awarded money to compensate for loss of earnings and any bonuses you might otherwise have received if you have been unable to work for any period. So you see, it really can be worth making road accident claims in Leicestershire if you’ve been affected.
But how do you go about finding out if you have a right to claim?
