Many people are injured every year in car accidents. Fortunately a lot of the injuries are minor. But for those injuries that are more severe in nature, people will often seek compensation for their injuries. Below are some of the things that can affect the amount for a car accident back injury compensation claim.
Car accident spine and neck injury compensation amounts are affected by the level of injury
The first thing that is going to affect the level of your car accident spine and neck injury compensation is how badly you were injured. When you have had your back injured in a car accident, the amount you will get is going to depend on how badly you were injured. If you have whiplash, for example, the amount of your compensation is going to be less than if your back was broken in the car accident. The worse the injury is the more compensation you will be entitled to.
Car accident spine and neck injury compensation amounts will be affected by your prognosis
The second thing that is going to affect your car accident spine and neck injury compensation level is the prognosis that you have after your car accident. If you are going to be in a wheelchair for the rest of your life that is going to be a prognosis which is worse than if you were going to be able to make a full recovery. In addition, if you are paralysed from the neck down you will more than likely receive a bigger amount than if you were paralysed from the waist down.
Car accident spine and neck injury compensation amounts are affected by your medical bills
The third thing that is going to affect your car accident back injury compensation is how much your medical bills and other bills will amount to. If you have a long hospitalisation period or if you need to have renovations on your house due to your injuries, this is going to increase the amount of money that you are likely to get. Someone who is going to need more surgery or who will need to have a lot of things done to their home is likely to get more money.
Whether or not you have a solicitor is going to affect your car accident back injury compensation amount
The fourth thing that is going to affect your compensation amount is if you have a solicitor to represent you. Your solicitor is going to make sure that you receive the amount of money that you deserve due to your injuries.
As you can see there are many things that can affect the amount that you receive from an injury to your back due to a car accident.
