A victim is awarded compensation as recompense after they have suffered injuries in an accident that was not their fault.
Most of the time it is in the form of money and is meant to make life a little easier while they are recovering or in the long term to help if the injuries are so severe they will be permanent and maybe the victim will never be able to work again.
Getting to the correct amount is not as easy as you may think. Different things can affect the outcome and this is why you should use a solicitor in Beckenham at Accident Advice Helpline to make you claim.
One of the things that are looked at is the impact the injuries have had on your life. Similar injuries will affect different victims in totally different ways and so they might end up with amounts that bear no relation to each other.
The whole point of it all is that the law says if you are injured in an accident that was not your fault, the guilty party should compensate you – so lets start with the accidents.
