How Much Is My Claim Worth?

The amount of compensation you will receive if the claim succeeds is made up of two parts.

  • "General Damages" - this is the term given to the pain and suffering element. The value of this part of your claim depends on the type of injury you have suffered, how long you were suffering from your injury, and whether your injury is going to have a long term effect on your life. A figure is set for this part based on previous amounts set by judges in similar cases to yours, from the most serious of injuries to the more relatively minor injuries.

    For example -

    • Whiplash - reported cases for a 12 month (relatively minor) "whiplash" injury to the neck and back will be valued in the region of between £2,000 and £2,500
    • Wrist injury - these vary in complexity but for a fracture which heals within a matter of weeks the value might be in the region of £3,000 although for the most serious of wrist fractures the value can be over £30,000.00
    • Head injuries - again vary in complexity but can range from a minor injury causing cuts and bruises where the value might be up to £2,000 to the most serious of injuries causing brain damage whereby general damages of up to £265,000 might be awarded
  • "Special Damages" - this is the term given to the out of pocket losses and expenses incurred as a result of the accident and going forward into the future. This can include loss of earnings, care and assistance by members of the family and friends, damaged items, the cost of medical care and attention (paid privately), aids and adaptations, loss of vehicle excess, hire of a replacement car, cost of public transport, prescriptions, etc. etc

Obviously these cannot be quantified until the claim is ongoing and even though the case might settle or go to court, there might be an element of future losses taken into account for the years of loss following settlement of the claim.

This amount is added to the value of your general damages to make up the overall damages award.
