Personal Injury Compensation Calculator
It is far from unusual for any one of us to be involved in an accident in which we sustain an injury, and many thousands of people are afflicted so each year. For an idea of how much you may be awarded you could use a personal injury compensation calculator, and you can find many online. It is important to remember that a calculator is just a guide to the amount you may be awarded, but it can still give you a good idea of the possible award.
Compensation Claims – Your Rights
It is your basic legal right to make a claim for compensation for injuries that are sustained thanks to the negligence of another party. This means that if you are injured in any accident in which another person or party was responsible you can claim compensation. It does not mean that you are automatically eligible for compensation, but that you can claim through the courts. Contacting a compensation solicitor for advice will confirm that you can claim. If you or a family member have suffered an accident and have recently used a compensation claims calculator, or you are unsure if you can make a claim, you can find out more or start a claim today by calling us today for free on 0800 988 4701.
Whiplash – A Common Injury
Whiplash remains among the most commonly suffered injuries in accidents, in particular with relation to road traffic accidents. It occurs when the spine is thrown out of its usual shape by such forces – imagine a car crash as an example – and the soft tissue in the spine is damaged, and this is what causes the characteristic symptoms of whiplash. Stiffness and pain in the neck and shoulders, headaches and fatigue and numbness in the limbs are all symptoms of this troublesome ailment. A personal injury compensation calculator will give you a rough idea of the amount you could be awarded for whiplash.
