Bodily Injury Compensation Amounts
Bodily Injury Compensation Claim
Bodily injuries can encompass a variety of injuries to the body which may have been inflicted in a traffic accident, an accident at work, at a retail store or even on the street. Bodily injuries can be minor, from bruising and cuts, to more serious injuries including fractures, organ failure and amputation.
How Much Could I Receive for Bodily Injury Claims?
One of the most difficult aspects of any compensation claim is to place a value on the amount of money you shall receive. Of course different solicitors will give you different estimations, simply because they go off the amounts they have won for their clients. This is the same for Tylers Solicitors; we can only give you an estimate of what you will receive for a bodily injury claim. The amount of compensation you will actually receive also depends on the seriousness of the injury. For instance, a broken bone is more likely to fetch more compensation than say a deep cut or heavy bruising.
How Serious Can Bodily Injury Be?
Bodily injury can range from minor injuries to severe injury and no two cases are ever the same, which is why it is tougher to place a valuation on the amount of compensation an injured person can receive. Not only do we have to assess which part of the body was injured, we also have to take into consideration how you received that injury and whether you were at fault or not. All of this has to be considered if you are planning on making a compensation claim for bodily injury.
What Should I Do to Push Through My Bodily Injury Compensation Claim?
The first thing to do after your accident would be to contact your doctor and get a diagnosis of your injuries, calculate if you are eligible to work and how much you are going to lose because you are unable to. Secondly, if you received your injury because of an unguarded hole in the pavement, or a raised flag, then you should take pictures of the scene where you received your injury.
How Could I Recieve a Bodily Injury I Can Claim For?
