How much compensation will I get for a serious injury claim?
Claiming compensation for a serious injury is a complex process, where the amount awarded will vary on a case by case basis. Fortunately, we handle cases like this all the time so we have a track record of dealing with compensation claims efficiently and successfully.
However, because of the long-term impact on a victim, the final settlement will often be a lot more substantial than an average personal injury compensation claim and may need interim payments to help support victims in their recovery.
The compensation awarded will reflect the pain and suffering which has been endured, alongside initial costs incurred and potential future losses as well. This may include costs for rehabilitation, nursing, home adaptations or specialist equipment as well as transport requirements. If the injured person was unable to return to work, the loss of future earning would also need to be factored in to any settlement.
How can serious injury compensation help me?
In all of the serious injury claims we take on, we will seek compensation to reflect the following areas:
- Your pain and suffering
- Your loss of income
- Your future job prospects
- The effect on the quality of your mobility
- The effect on your quality of life
- Physical and psychological damage
- Ongoing costs of private medical treatment
- The cost of adapting your car or home in the event you are left physically disabled
Compensation can help towards medical treatment and help relieve the financial stress that a serious injury can often cause to both the individual involved, and their families. It can also can help you recover loss of earnings, both now and in the future, including any vital adaptations that may be needed to your home to live more comfortably.
Our caring approach to legal advice allows us to give our clients a great deal of time and commitment, ensuring you get the best possible outcome in your case. We focus on getting you the compensation that will make your life easier and more manageable.
If you’ve suffered a serious injury, or are acting on behalf of a family member or friend who has been left badly injured, we know you need not only sound legal advice, but support, sympathy and understanding about the impact the injury has had on your lives.
We also have strong relationships with care providers, rehabilitation experts and medical advisors who will all strive to help you and give you a better quality of life following your injury.
