When the time comes for you to make a claim for compensation with a solicitor in Staines there are many questions that you will need answers to. One of the main queries which is asked at the beginning of a compensation claim is how much money will be awarded at the close of the case. The straightforward answer is that the amount of compensation varies from case to case. So in order to give you a guide amount of compensation to be claiming for, some other factors need to be taken into account.
The extent of your injuries
A main factor which directly reflects the amount of compensation being claimed is the severity of the damage or injuries received as a direct result of the accident. Walking away from an accident with a few cuts and bruises will not entitle you to as much compensation money as a victim who was hospitalised and was unable to work for a couple of months.
Although it is not the ultimate deciding factor in how much you are claiming for, a solicitor in Staines would advise that the injuries inflicted during the accident would have some bearing on the case.
A solicitor in Staines and responsibility for the accident
Regardless of whether you are responsible for the accident or if you feel you are partially responsible, your solicitor in Staines may advise you to continue with the compensation claim. Even if you are partially to blame for the accident you may still walk away with some compensation money for your injuries.
The amount of money received will not be as much as if you were not responsible at all for the accident in question but it could be enough to compensate any loss of earnings as a direct result of the accident.
