To work out your potential personal injury claim value, you need to take into account:
The type of injury/illness you have
How severe it is
The time it takes you to recover
Your loss of earnings as a result of your injury
The purpose of personal injury claims payouts is to help the claimant get back into the position they were in before the accident happened. The payout amount is worked out by assessing the severity of pain and suffering caused as a result of the injury. Typical injuries are caused by road traffic accidents, industrial disease, falling on pavements and medical negligence. The worse the injury - the higher the personal injury claims payout.
The court will also take into account any financial losses (such as loss of income per week) and expenses you have incurred as a result of your injury when working out your personal injury claim payout. Additionally, medical bills, transport fares to the hospital and any aids you have purchased to help you will also be considered.
