How much compensation will I get?

This depends on the injury, how severe it is and how it impacts on your lifestyle. As soon as our investigations have been completed and a definite decision has been made to issue court proceedings, we will carry out a great deal more work in valuing your claim. We can then give you precise advice as to how much you can reasonably expect to recover if your case were to go to court and you were to succeed.

Compensation is calculated in three ways:

  • Compensation for pain, suffering and disability
  • Compensation for financial losses that have already been incurred
  • Compensation for anticipated future financial losses

The position is different in cases where the victim has died. In these circumstances, there will be two claims; one for the victim and one for the dependant. They are claimed at the same time and in the same court proceedings.
