Internal Injury Compensation
The amount of internal injury compensation that you can claim will depend upon the specific details of your case. This amount of compensation is calculated by looking at two specific categories: general damages and special damages.
The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed. This will usually be determined by undergoing a medical examination, from which a report is created that outlines the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity.
“92% of customers said they were ‘very satisfied’ with the friendliness of our staff.”
Our compensation calculator gives an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details about your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded.
Compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Therefore, you should keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses, as caused by your condition.ELIGIBILITY CHECKER
