High Peak is a borough in Derbyshire, England and is mostly comprised of high moorland in the Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park. The Peak District is a hugely popular tourist area and when the sun is shining a lot of people make trips here. Accidents though can happen when an area is both busy and quiet, but you have to be extra careful when there are more cars about.
If you have been injured in an accident which wasn’t your fault, then chances are we can help you claim for road traffic accident compensation in High Peak. As long as the accident was someone else’s fault, it happened in the last three years and your injuries needed medical treatment then give us a call.
How much can you claim?
If you want to find out how much compensation you could be eligible to receive, you can do by using our online 30-second test. It will check that you’re eligible to claim and then give you an estimate of your potential pay-out.
There are many things which can affect the pay-out you get when claiming for road traffic accident compensation in High Peak, and they include:
- The severity of your injury
How severe your particular injury is will affect how much compensation you can get, as two people may suffer from a broken leg but one might end up being more severe than another. If one victim has a clean break which just needs rest and a cast and the other has a shattered bone which needs an operation and will lead to a lot of pain then it’s likely they’ll be able to claim more.
- Your recovery time
How long you’re likely to need to recover will affect how much compensation you get as the longer it takes for you to return to normal, the more it has affected your life and this means a higher pay-out.
- Impact on your future health
Sometimes an injury can heal and then you’re back to normal, but other injuries can affect your life further down the line, either resulting in lifelong pain or the need for additional treatment. If your injury affects you throughout your life then you may be able to claim more compensation.
- The effect it’s had on your life
How much your life has had to change from being out of work, to cancelling holidays and changing in your regular hobbies can all affect how much compensation you can get.
