How Is The Value Of A Claim Calculated?
If you’ve suffered a serious personal injury or illness and are thinking about making a compensation claim, one of the first questions you might have is: ‘how much will my claim be worth?’
There is no definitive answer as every claim is different. The same types of injury or illness can affect people in different ways.
Claims are calculated on a case by case basis and the amounts can vary significantly depending on the individual circumstances of your claim. Factors such as the severity of your injury or illness, the impact on your day-to-day life and your specific needs will be taken into consideration.
There are two parts to a compensation claim:
General damages compensate you for your injury or illness, your pain and suffering and how your lifestyle has been affected.
Special damages aim to put you back in the financial position you were if you’d never sustained your serious injury or never developed your illness. They compensate you for any ‘out of pocket’ expenses and loss of earnings you’ve incurred, including any possible future losses and your care needs in the future.
Special damages can include:
There is no such thing as an average compensation claim. At Novum Law, we specialise in complex, high value, serious personal injury and medical negligence claims. Our expertise lies in not just securing the maximum compensation available for your injury or illness but understanding all of you and your family’s needs from medical treatment and rehabilitation to specialist care and support.
We can help you make a No Win No Fee claim with no financial risk to you. Novum Law’s specialist solicitors have a strong track record securing early, interim payments to pay for any immediate needs you have during the compensation process before your claim has settled.
