Can I Make a Compensation Claim?

 

If you have suffered from personal injuries that occurred because of an accident that was the fault of someone else, the chances are; you are eligible to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

Whether your injuries were caused by a car accident, an accident at work, the negligence of a medical professional or even by something as rare as a dog attack, you deserve to be compensated for your time suffering.

Even if your physical injuries are only minor, they can lead to much bigger losses than just a small amount of pain or discomfort.

What is the Claiming Process?

 

The accident claims process is actually a lot less daunting than people often assume having not dealt with personal injury claims before.

1. After establishing that the accident you were involved in or the injuries you are suffering from were not caused by you, get in touch with a team of personal injury solicitors.

2. Have your claim assessed completely free of charge to receive professional feedback on whether your claim is eligible and how much compensation you could be entitled to receiving.

3. Decide if you want to make the claim. If so, and the defendant accepts responsibility, you win your case and compensation. If the defendant denies responsibility, your personal injury solicitors will take it to court. If the case is won, you will receive compensation. If not, you lose nothing!

With it being law related, it is often assumed that the process is much more complicated and complex, but it really is that simple.

How Long Will the Claiming Process Take?

 

The answer to this question is hard to answer as accident claims are all unique. However, with good evidence and a good personal injury firm, your case could be settled within a couple of months.

Don’t be put off if you think your claim could take a while. You will receive your compensation in time and your patience will be worth while.

What Affects the Amount of Compensation I Receive?

 

Of course there are a number of factors that come into play when determining the amount of compensation you receive when making accident claims.

First of all, things like medical expenses that were only necessary due to the injuries you suffered caused by the accident that you are claiming for.

This includes treatment from medical professionals, clinics or hospitals, as well as medication prescriptions. Long term injury treatment will also affect the monetary amounts.

Another factor is the recovery period – if the accident left you with long term injuries and treatment is an ongoing process, you will be compensated for this. Other long term effects such as scarring or loss of mobility are also factors.

One of the things that comes into play much more often than assumed (unfortunately), is physical or emotional distress caused by the injury. This is a huge factor as it is a horrible way to suffer, especially when you’re suffering due to the negligence of someone else.

Loss of earnings – if you have had to take time off work due to the accident, you can be compensated for the money that you should have been earning. You can also be compensated for missing time in school.

Missing a vacation of some sort also affects your compensation amount. Nobody wants to miss out on a holiday because of an accident that could have been avoided. The same goes for pre-organised special events such as weddings.

The need for daily care can have a huge impact on your mentality and can also cost a lot. You will be compensated for this, as well as alternative transport costs such as taxis or buses if you cannot drive.

As you can see, a lot of factors come into play when it comes to compensation amounts which is why it is hard to establish straight away how much compensation you could be entitled to receiving.
