How much is my claim worth?
It is very difficult to say without arranging for you to be seen by a medical expert. It may be that you have to be seen by a number of different experts before the evidence is complete. You will be entitled to claim for pain, suffering and loss of amenity. Lawyers refer to this head of claim as General Damages. You will also be able to recover compensation for losses incurred from the date of the accident until the claim is settled. This could include loss of earnings, travelling expenses, care provided by family members. A separate head of claim is future losses. This could include loss of earnings if you are unable to work or your ability to earn money is reduced or on-going care provided by family members.
Do you provide rehabilitation?
Yes. We work closely with The Injury Care Clinic. They will carry out an immediate needs assessment to see how they can assist. They may be able to assist in your return to work, or provide aids and equipment in the home. They may appoint a case manager giving a person to contact if you need additional assistance. The cost is paid for by the insurers for the person or company who caused the accident.
I may need professional care. What next?
If it is supported by expert evidence you will be able to recover compensation for care provided by a nurse. We will arrange for you to be seen by an occupational care expert who will see you in your home to determine the type and level of care required.
I need physiotherapy but cannot afford to pay for it. Can you help?
Yes. We work closely with The Injury Care Clinic who retain a national network of physiotherapists. We can arrange at least 8 sessions of physiotherapy at no charge to you.
My family are providing a lot of support. Will they be compensated?
Yes. You are entitled to seek compensation for both past and future care provided by friends and family. The level of compensation for care will depend upon the severity of your injury.
As a result of the accident I am suffering financial hardship. Can you help?
Yes. If you have been seriously injured we will endeavour to obtain an interim payment from the insurance company. Such a payment is unlikely until the insurers have investigated the issue of fault. In the meantime we may be able to offer you an interest free loan of up to £2500.
