Are you using AAH to claim compensation for traffic injuries?
The news that the numbers of road traffic injuries continues to fall is of course good news. Yet the figure is still far too high; a sentiment you will probably agree with if you happen to have been injured in an RTA yourself. Using AAH to claim compensation for traffic injuries is a wise decision.
The first thing you should consider, (if you haven’t already), is that you may be able to claim financial compensation, if of course the blame for the accident is down to someone other than yourself; and if you need help doing so, then you should contact us here at AAH, and we’ll work with you to ensure you get the compensation to which you are legally entitled.
The 4 important “qualifiers” every personal injury claim requires
To establish that your claim meets the necessary requirements to be eligible for compensation, you’ll need to be aware of the following.
- The blame for the RTA in which you were involved and injured must be attributable to someone other than yourself
- The RTA must have happened within the three year period immediately preceding the date of your claim
- The injury you’re claiming for must be severe enough, or have significant enough consequences (i.e. loss of earnings, leaving you with a permanent disability, etc.) to justify the raising of a claim
- Medical proof of the injury will be required to back up your claim
The Ogden Tables cover all types of injuries, including road traffic injuries
Every type of injury (including road traffic injuries) has a set amount of compensation allocated to it. These figures are summarised in a report known as the Ogden Tables. These are actuarial tables, which had been prepared by a group of actuaries, including the government actuary, together with lawyers, accountants, and insurers, and are for use in all personal injury and fatal accident cases.
Copies can be obtained from the Stationery Office. They are however quite difficult to manipulate and you will find it much easier to go to our website, and take what AAH refer to as the 30 second test.
The 30 second test
We’ve installed a HOW MUCH calculator on the homepage of our website. It’s freely available for anybody to use, whether or not they decide to pursue their claim via the no-win, no-fee service that we offer here at AAH.
Simply supply six pieces of information, and the automatic calculator will give you an estimate for the basic amount of compensation allocated for that particular type of injury. Any additional expenses that you feel may need covering can be discussed with your solicitor when you register your claim for road traffic injuries.
