FAQ on personal injury compensation

How are personal injury claims calculated?

Usually, courts and lawyers would need to assess all the evidence pertaining to your claim. This could include evidence of the accident and whose fault it was. It would also include medical evidence. This would not usually come from your own doctor. You’d need to attend a medical appointment with an independent specialist to gather such information, which courts and lawyers could use against the Judicial College Guidelines to assess how much compensation could be relevant. The strength of medical evidence could affect your personal injury compensation payout.

How long does a personal injury claim take to settle?

This would depend on how complex your case was and whether the liable party accepted liability and offered you a settlement straight away. Straightforward cases could be settled relatively quickly. However, complex claims, especially those where liability is denied, could take much longer.
