Personal Injury Compensation Guide

How Much Personal Injury Compensation Can I Claim?

There’s no such thing as an average personal injury claim. The consequences of the same type of injury aren’t the same for any two people so the compensation awarded will be different and tailored to your specific needs.

Our personal injury solicitors handle a wide variety of cases, differing hugely in severity and complexity, so it’s difficult to say exactly how much compensation you could claim. As every person is different, our team will get to know you so we can understand how your injuries or illness have impacted your life.

The amount of compensation you may be awarded can differ due to factors such as your job. For example, an injury might mean that you can’t go back to your previous career, so any compensation awarded to you could help with any loss of earnings and to retrain.

How We Calculate Compensation Claims

The amount of compensation we will claim for is worked out following advice and assessments by experts. They will explain and calculate what’s needed to best aid your recovery, including your immediate and any long term care needs, customised transport or adaptations to your home.

Our ultimate aim is to make sure that you have a secure future with no financial worries so you can focus on your recovery and rehabilitation.

A number of factors can influence how much you’re awarded, including:

  • The severity of your injury/illness
  • Expenses that you’ve incurred
  • Loss of earnings
  • Future care needs
  • Household adaptations
  • Rehabilitation, therapy and support

Not only can we help you secure compensation, but our in-house Asset Management team can advise you on how best to manage any compensation awarded to you, setting up personal injury trusts that can ensure that funds are available throughout your life.
