Personal Injury Claim Settlement
The level, or amount, of any personal injury claim settlement will be determined by several different factors.
The severity of injury caused and the amount of losses incurred will be factored into the final settlement figure as will be any additional figure for distress suffered by the complainant.
What You Can Claim For
It sounds awful and very clinical but the fact is that the more the severe the injury the higher the financial payout will be. The loss of a limb will attract more money than would a broken leg.
But, the actual injury suffered is just one of the factors that will be taken into consideration in calculating any personal injury claim settlement.
Economic loss will also be taken into consideration. This can include loss of earnings due to being unable to work because of the injury suffered but can also include any expenses incurred because of the accident.
For example, medical expenses, travelling costs and any other extra expense can be claimed for. If you were in a car accident and had to pay garage costs, transportation fees or maybe even having to hire a replacement vehicle; those costs can all be claimed for.
As well as the actual injury suffered and loss of earnings there are other factors that can be included in the overall figure of any compensation received.
The cost of any property or possessions lost or damaged in the accident should be claimed for. Maybe you were forced to miss a family wedding because of the injury? If so you can claim an amount to compensate you for missing the event.
Basically, anything that you would normally have done or were planning to do, and as a result of your accident, injury or sickness became unable to do; there could be grounds for including them in your claim.
It is common for any compensation claim payout to include an amount for suffering and distress. There is no set formula for calculating this figure but any reputable lawyer will be able to advise you of the amount to include in your claim.
