How much accident compensation will I receive for my injuries?

Personal injury claims are made up of a number of different components.

You are entitled to claim for compensation for the injuries you had from the accident. The amount of compensation you are awarded will depend on how serious your injury is. For example, if your knee was dislocated in an accident, you might expect around £10,000. However, severe damage to your knee, causing considerable pain and requiring lengthy treatment, might justify a claim of £50,000.

In addition you can claim for any lost earnings, bonuses, overtime or pension contributions. If you are self-employed, you can claim for any earnings or contracts you may have lost.

If you have specific medical treatment needs such as rehabilitation or physiotherapy this will be included in your claim, as will any prescription costs or over the counter medication.

If your injuries are life-changing, you will be awarded compensation to help pay for any future care needs such as nursing, specialist equipment, and adaptations needed to your vehicle or house.

The amount of compensation you receive can be decided in court. Normally, your lawyer will be able to negotiate a settlement without the need for this.
