It’s hard to put a price on your health. It’s something we take for granted and it’s only when we become injured that we realise how lucky we were, but if you’ve been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you might find yourself putting some figures together. So just what is the value of personal injuries? Well, as with so many things, it’s all about individual circumstances.
Calculating the value of personal injuries
Getting a true value of personal injuries and therefore the amount of compensation you should be seeking, depends on the specifics of your case. The severity of the accident, the injuries sustained, your potential recovery time and its impact on your earnings will all be taken into consideration and it’s important to be as accurate and detailed as possible with any claim you put forward in order to achieve the most favourable outcome.
Injuries that have a long-term impact on your physical, mental and financial well being will garner a bigger price in the claims process as you’ll need to consider the cost of general damages too, or things like future loss of earnings, the cost of rehabilitation and any associated medical bills – it’s these type of long-term costs that can all add up but they’re also the ones that are much harder to calculate and that’s why it’s so important to have the experts on your side.
