Many people who suffer a physical or psychological trauma due to an accident which was not their fault, may be entitled to compensation. Examples of the amount of compensation they may receive can often be misleading, as each case is determined individually and accounts for factors such as future loss of earnings – which would be considerably greater for a young person than it would for somebody older. Further compensation examples that can be erroneous would include recompense for a trip or fall – which may lead to significant care expenses for an older person who does not heal as quickly as a young person – or where an intangible injury such as psychological trauma is the basis for a personal injury claim.
The Defendant’s insurance company will attempt to settle your case for the lowest possible price and their point of reference may be examples of cases which were settled for figures which were in reality too low in respect of the injuries suffered.
Avoiding the Compensation Trap
The best course of action for anybody involved in an accident is to first sort out their health. No amount of money is ever going to compensate for permanent disability which could have been avoided by swift medical attention, so your focus should be on health first, recompense second.
