    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Solicitor in Kirbymoorside

    If you speak to anyone who has used Accident Advice Helpline in the past you’ll find one of the best things they enjoy is the 30 second test. Here we’ll look at what this is, how it works and why it is useful for you if you’re looking for a solicitor in Kirbymoorside.

    What is it?

    The 30 second test is our short name for a compensation calculator. This is a very simple method by which we can work out how much compensation you might be entitled to if you win your case. All you have to do is enter your details into the system and we’ll give you a quick idea about how much your claim might be worth if you are successful.

    This is not, of course, a guaranteed figure. That will depend on what view the courts take of it and there is no way even to be certain that they will find in your favour. However, although this is only an estimate, it is a realistic one which uses the same methodology as the courts will.

    Compensation is decided by bringing together two different sums: one for the injury itself and the other for the costs. The compensation for the injury looks at how bad it is and how greatly it has impeded your life. It stands to reason that some of the more severe injuries will attract a slightly higher sum than something which is relatively short term.

    The second figure is that of the ‘costs’ and this makes up both those expenses you’ve incurred as a result of the accident, such as travel costs and money you would have brought in had the injury not laid you off your feet. In calculating your loss of earnings the courts will make a determination about how much you have lost out on already and how much you could receive in the future. For long term injuries and condition, this figure can get quite high.

    Finding a solicitor in Kirbymoorside

    This estimate is useful because the chances are most cases will not go to court. Insurance companies are realists and they will probably have a team of people who are advising them on what they should do about any claim. If that advice tells them that the chances are they will lose their case, then they will look to avoid the expense of going to court. If, on the other hand, they think they can win then they will fight on.

    Therefore it’s important to find a solicitor in Kirbymoorside who is well equipped to take on your case and that means finding a specialist. We can help you with that at Accident Advice Helpline and provide all the support and advice you could possibly need.
