If you’re looking for a solicitor in Knowle then there are two questions you might want to know the answer to. Firstly, can you make a claim and secondly how much compensation are you entitled to? At Accident Advice Helpline, we can provide the answers to both.
A compensation calculation
When you first landed on our website you may have noticed something called the 30-second test. This is a very quick online compensation calculator which allows you to see how much you might be awarded if you eventually win your case. This is not a full guarantee, but it does give you something to shoot for and that in itself can be useful in setting expectations as you move ahead.
How we make the calculation
When the courts decide on the compensation for your case they will look at it in the following way. They will come up with a single sum for the injury itself. Unsurprisingly, this will tend to be higher for more serious injuries and significantly less for those which are not so bad.
Secondly they will look at how much you have paid out as a result of the accident. This will include costs such as getting to and from the hospital and also others which are less tangible such as any income you might have earned had the accident not forced you off work. This will include any income you’ve already lost and an estimate for income that you will lose out on in the future because of the injury.
We make the calculation using the same criteria based on our own knowledge of personal injury law and what we know about your case. Therefore the more information you give us, the more accurate we can make this estimate.
Why is it useful?
It is tempting to think of this as a bit of a gimmick – after all we’re not telling you how much you will get, but how much we think you will get and that’s a completely different issue. However, it is a good idea to have this figure in mind because the other side may well come back with a settlement offer and it is a good idea to know whether or not it is a realistic one at this stage.
