How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?

When calculating your Personal Injury claim, consideration is given to two areas:

  1. Pain, suffering and loss of amenity i.e. your injuries and the impact upon your daily life style; and
  2. Out of pocket expenses or ‘special damages’. Documentary evidence where possible will need to be provided for example, wage slips/receipts/invoices.

The value of a claim is based on the individual facts around your personal injury case i.e. the nature of the injuries sustained, the period of pain and suffering, the impact on your ability to work, how much care and assistance has been required and the impact upon carrying out day-to-day tasks. Expert medical evidence will also be required too.

The value of out of pocket expenses will depend upon for example, the amount of time taken off work due to the injuries, items purchased due to the injuries, treatment costs, travel expenses etc.

    "Thanks to the hard work of HJA, and in particular Sarah Townsend, I have agreed a substantial out of court settlement for my personal injury claim. Sarah took care of myself and my case offering advice, support, and assistance in absolutely everything throughout. I never felt I was just a client number, I always felt Sarah was personally looking out for myself and my family. Nothing was too much trouble. I was constantly kept informed and updated of any developments, whilst Sarah battled away behind the scenes on my behalf- she gave me great confidence and faith. I have no hesitation in recommending this company and its team(s) to anybody thinking of engaging them."
