What a solicitor can help you claim for
When it comes to making a chest pain compensation claim there are actually a variety of conditions and injuries that an experienced solicitor in Miurhead can help you claim for:
- Pectoral muscle injury – often caused as a result of strain (perhaps in a manual handling accident at work).
- Sternum injuries – frequently injured in falls from height or accidents involving impact, for example, road traffic collisions.
- Rib cage injuries, or an injury to one of the 24 ribs within the rib cage. These injuries can occur from a variety of incidents, from assault to falls and road traffic collisions.
- Internal organs – the rib cage is there to protect the vital internal organs of the lungs and heart. If impact if severe enough, these organs may be damaged, for example, resulting in a collapsed lung.
If you have suffered from any of these injuries within the past three years, and think they were caused by the actions of another person, then our solicitor in Miurhead can help you make a claim for compensation against the person who is liable.
The amount of compensation a solicitor in Miurhead can win you will depend on a number of factors.
Compensation is generally split into two distinct parts. Firstly, you are awarded a finite amount for pain and suffering. To get an idea of how much your claim may be worth, based on industry standards and precedents, you can take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test. This will give you a good idea; however, there are important factors to take into account such as the severity of the injury and how long you are likely to be suffering from the after effects of the injury, as well as general recovery time.
In order to help calculate this your solicitor in Miurhead will arrange for you to be seen by an independent medical expert who will assess your condition. They will then write a report on how long they anticipate you needing to fully recover, or if you will not make a full recovery, the impact your condition will have on your life going forwards.
The second element of compensation is based on recovering financial losses, for example, reimbursing you for any unpaid time you have had to take off from work. You can also claim for out of pocket expenses, such as travel to medical appointments, drug prescriptions, or professional care that you have had to pay for.
