How much compensation could I get?
No one can say for certain how much you might receive in compensation. This is because there are so many different factors to be taken into consideration. The amount of compensation you receive will be dependent on the severity of your injuries. For example, for a case of whiplash when you are expected to fully recover within a year, you could get between £1,705 and £3,520. If you are not expected to recover in that time, but could recover fully within two years, then you could receive between £3,520 and £6,380. If your recovery will take longer, then you would receive more.
You can also be compensated for loss of earnings, expenses directly incurred because of your injury and other amounts, depending on your circumstances.
