How much is my injury claim worth?
Our free personal injury claim assessment service will help you to understand if there is a reasonable chance of your claim being successful.
When you provide us with the details of the accident that caused your injuries, we can assess your claim and then estimate the amount of compensation you should receive.
Most personal injury claims can be dealt with on a No Win No Fee basis.
As part of the Co-op Group our values of openness, honesty, social responsibility and caring for others are core to the service we provide.
General damages and special damages
About injury claims - There are 2 parts to personal injury compensation:
General Damages includes compensation for pain, suffering and for loss of amenity (the ability to do things that you could do before you suffered the injury). In cases where people cannot return to work additional compensation can be awarded for loss of employment*.
Special Damages are the financial losses caused by the injuries such as lost earnings, missed pension payments, cancelled holidays, out of pocket expenses, travel costs, damaged personal items, medical costs, future medical care and rehabilitation aids. In cases where the victims’ home and/or car have to be modified additional compensation can be awarded.
* If your injury will impact your ability to work in the future, or force you to change the type of work that you do, you can claim compensation for anticipated future loss of earnings. You may also be able to claim if you believe that bonuses and salary increases have been affected due to your incapacity.
If you have incurred additional expenses to stay mobile, either because your injuries prohibit you from driving, riding a motorcycle or bicycle or because your vehicle has been damaged, then you will be able to claim for these expenses.
The financial losses you can claim for depend very much on your specific situation. Your appointed Personal Injury Solicitor will ensure that you are provided with advice on what can be claimed for and how to gather information and evidence to support this.
We will calculate the value of your personal injury compensation after we have assessed your claim.
