How Much Compensation for an Injury

“How much compensation am I entitled to?” is one of the most frequent questions we get asked as compensation claims solicitors. The simple answer is that normally in the early stages of a compensation claim we are in no position to suggest an accurate figure because each case is dealt with on an individual basis, detailed medical evidence of your injuries is required and your personal circumstances will reflect how much compensation you receive. We can, however, provide a rough guide if you call our free advice line on 1800 911 940

It is important to note that different types of injuries affect their victims in different ways. Spinal injuries for example may cause anything from the inconvenience of a bad back to permanent disability. Within these two extremes there are thousands of possible side effects and, for an injury of this nature, often it is advisable not to press forward too quickly with a claim for compensation, as how much compensation you receive may be influenced by the time it takes for the full extent of the injuries to become apparent.

Making a Claim for Compensation

Indeed, how much compensation you receive can also be influenced by the manner in which the claim is made. Insurance companies representing liable parties, are often keen to offer quick settlements for compensation in order that they may minimise their costs – and the amount they pay out! Taking your claim for compensation solely through the Injuries Board may also limit how much compensation you receive, and although (as stated above) we will not be able to give you an immediate and accurate answer to your initial question, we should in time be able to suggest a general level of compensation that is awarded to people with injuries of your nature. 

In order to ascertain quickly how much compensation you may be entitled to receive, we have established a free advice line for victims of accidents where somebody else was to blame for their injuries. The first thing you should do is to give us a call and speak about your accident to one of our experienced injury claims solicitors. They will explain the process of making a claim for personal injury compensation and offer accurate and impartial advice to assist you with making a claim. There is no obligation to proceed with a claim for compensation once you have spoken with our solicitor, although they will now be in a better position to let you know how much compensation you may receive.

What Happens Next?

When you call us, you will speak directly to an experienced injury claims solicitor familiar with all types of injury. They will ask you to give a full description of the circumstances surrounding the accident and the medical treatment you received. Thereafter, they will assess if there is a case which it is worth your while to pursue and give you details about the process that is involved.

Kindly note that although our solicitors are extremely good at what they do, they cannot give medical advice or assess the extent of your injuries over the phone. Therefore, they are in no position just yet to determine precisely how much compensation you are likely to receive on the initial telephone call. 

If you choose to proceed with a claim for compensation – and the decision is entirely yours – as comprehensive details of the accident and injuries sustained are compiled. We will be in a better position to advise you the general level of how much compensation you can expect to receive.
