How Much Compensation Can I Claim?

How much compensation can I claim for my injuries? We are often asked how much compensation can be awarded for personal injury claims. Whilst each case is different, there are guidelines issued to help decide how much should be awarded.

Every year millions of people will suffer a personal injury that wasn’t their fault. However, only a quarter of them will make a claim for compensation! Levenes personal injury solicitors are here to help you claim the compensation you deserve.

Compensation Guidelines for Personal Injury

 

Levenes experts have created a list of compensation guidelines for personal injury, showing the amount you could win dependant on the type of injury. Hopefully, this will give you a better idea of ​​what you should expect when it comes to compensation claims.

General Damages Compensation

 

It’s important to remember that the facts of each case are different. With that in mind, we will need to obtain full (medical) evidence to help us make a proper assessment. However, you can use our compensation guidelines list as a quick reference to the amounts claimed for “pain and suffering”.

Special Damages Compensation

 

There are also many other types of personal injury damages that you can claim for. Our specialist injury lawyers are familiar with these. In addition to general damages for “pain and suffering”, you can also receive compensation for loss of income in the past, future and disadvantage in the labour market.

Claims can also be made for travel expenses, medical treatment, special equipment, care and many other types of loss, if it has resulted from the accident. We will advise you of what can be claimed and what evidence we will need to prove your loss.

I want to thank you infinitely for the great job you did with my case! For me it was very difficult the moment, being away from home, without managing the language well, without the slightest idea of what to do and with the only desire for justice to be done! But you did it. You were always attentive to all my doubts, concerns, etc... Above all, I want to highlight the human treatment that I received from both of you! Many thanks!!! Juan Pablo de la Camara
