The majority of injury compensation websites, which includes ours, have an injury compensation calculator on them.
Here on Accident Advice Helpline’s website, we have called ours the 30-second test, and it will let you know if you qualify to make a claim and give you a rough estimate of the mount you can expect to be awarded.
How accurate is the calculator?
You should not think that the amount the calculator on the website is the amount that you will receive and that it will not go either up or down. This can depend of how severe your injury is, your age and lots of other different things.
We do try our hardest to try to make the estimates as close to the correct figure as possible. Although, someone else is also involved in making the decision about the figure, the other party in an out of court settlement and the judge if the case goes to court.
The effects of injuries
The injury you suffer could range from mild to severe. If it is mild then you would probably have a few cuts and bruises, if its severe then they could be life changing or even life threatening, for example a brain injury. A brain injury can be fatal, and then it would be your family or friends who uses the solicitors in Hayle to make a fatal injury compensation claim.
A similar injury in a young child, an adult and an elderly person can have totally different consequences, and affect their lives in different ways. Broken bones are a good example, as they will heal the quickly in a child and slowly in an elderly person.
If a woman is pregnant when the accident happens, the injuries can be far worse and may even affect the unborn baby. Any mother to be in this situation should go straight to hospital to be checked out.
