Typical Compensation Amounts For Accident In Aberdeen Claims
The amount of compensation you are likely to receive for your accident might seem like an easy question to answer, but all compensation payments are specific to your personal situation, so the only way to get an accurate assessment is to discuss your accident with our highly-trained legal professionals. There are some common aspects across all compensation claims, however.
Compensation claims can best be thought of in two parts. The first is there to make up for the pain and suffering you have endured, at least as far as this is possible. This follows national guidelines set down by the Judicial College. Under this framework, each injury has a range of compensation and payments for that injury are expected to fall somewhere within that range. The range can be very broad, however, to account for the vast individual differences in each injury.
In addition to this, you are also entitled to compensation for any financial costs, expenses or liabilities that you have incurred as a result of your accident. This is designed to ensure that you are not left financially worse off as the result of an accident that wasn’t your fault. This can include covering you for the loss of any earnings you could have expected during any period you have needed to be off work, or for the loss of potential future earnings, if your injuries mean that you are unable to return to your former profession. You are also able to claim the expenses associated with any additional medical care or rehabilitation that might have been necessary and hard to access via the NHS. For those who have very serious injuries, you are entitled to payments to allow you modify your home or vehicle to help you to live as close to the life you had before as possible. In general, you are entitled to claim back any expenses that you have had that would not have occurred had your accident not happened.
Working with our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors means that you have the benefit of our years of experience, allowing us to claim for many expenses that you might not have realised could be included in your compensation claim. We want to get you the financial support you need to help get your life back on track.
Accident Compensation Claims In Aberdeen - How Long Do They Take To Resolve?
Accident compensation claims can differ dramatically in terms of how long they take to resolve. Despite this, we understand that you need your case resolved as quickly as possible. Resolving your case allows you to move on from your accident, with the financial support you need behind you.
Some cases can be settled very quickly indeed, with many taking just a couple of months and the very fastest needing only a few weeks. For cases to be resolved this quickly, they will usually be for more minor injuries and, therefore, smaller compensation amounts. If you are claiming a smaller amount of money, there is less incentive for the other side to reduce your claim through lengthy negotiations. Personal injury compensation claims that are resolved this quickly as also the ones where the other side accept liability almost immediately, removing the need for evidence gathering and offering proof, both of which take time.
If you are unlucky enough to have a very complicated case, for example if multiple people were to blame for what happened, or if your accident resulted in very serious injuries and there are complex negotiations as to the amount of compensation that is appropriate, your case can take significantly longer to be resolved. Cases that have to go to court are the longest compensation cases.

How Do Accident Compensation Claims In Aberdeen Work?
Making an accident personal injury compensation claim is simple.
The first thing to do is to make sure that you have the help of a personal injury claims solicitor. Our team of experienced personal injury claims specialists are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have about your accident compensation claim. You can call us or claim online and we will call you back at a time convenient to you.
We, acting on your behalf, will write to the person you are taking action against, explaining that you believe that they were responsible for your accident and that you are making a personal injury compensation claim against them. We will ask them to accept that they were legally responsible (liable) and give them a deadline by which they have to respond.
If the respondent denies liability, we will need to gather and present evidence to them, demonstrating that they were at fault for your accident. This evidence can take many different forms. It might be pictures of the location where your accident took place, videos of the accident happening if these are available or statements from people who were there when your accident happened who can explain the exact situation. More technical legal and medical arguments may also be relevant. Almost all employers will accept liability, once presented with the evidence that we gather.
After the other side have admitted that they were at fault in your personal injury claim, it is time to negotiate the compensation amount. Although we will handle all of the negotiations on your behalf, you remain in control at all times. We will inform you of all amounts that are offered to you and it will be your decision as to whether you accept or reject each offer. We will give you our expert advice, based on our years of training and experience making personal injury compensation claims, but the final decision will always rest with you.
It is almost always possible to reach agreement for compensation, especially with accidents that took place at work. If we are unable to convince the other party to accept liability, or if it is impossible to agree on compensation, your case may have to go to court to have a judge decide how much should be paid.

Can I Make a Claim For My Accident In Aberdeen?
Following an accident, many people are left unsure as to whether they are entitled to make a compensation claim. There are a few simple requirements for making an accident compensation claim, but they are very straightforward and most people will find that they do qualify.
The first thing to note is that you must have sustained an actual injury as a result of your accident. This injury does not need to have been exclusively physical, as psychological damage is also recognised as important. You cannot make an accident compensation claim for near misses, however, or if you have an accident but are not injured in any way.
In order to make a compensation claim, you must also be able to demonstrate that there was someone else who was at fault in your accident. They do not have to have caused the accident directly, and they don’t even need to have been present. The important thing is that they had a responsibility to make sure that you were safe. In the workplace, your employer has this legal duty of care, meaning that almost all accidents at work fulfil this criteria.
The other person must also have been able to foresee or anticipate what has happened to you. This doesn’t mean that they must have actually known that it would happen, but that they could have considered it, if they had put sufficient thought and care into health and safety concerns.
Finally, you should consider whether any safety measures they put in place to protect you were sufficient. If no steps were taken to keep you safe, or to minimise the severity of any injuries you might sustain, you are very likely to be able to make a compelling compensation claim. Even if some measures were taken, you are still able to claim if these were inadequate.
If you have suffered an accident and someone else was to blame, whether through their negligence or carelessness, you are entitled to compensation. If you are considering making an accident compensation claim, don’t delay. Call us now or claim online to discover how we can help you to get the compensation you deserve.
What Steps Should I Take Following My Accident In Aberdeen?
The most important thing you can do immediately after your accident is to make sure that you are safe and to seek any medical attention you may need. We want to make sure that your recovery is as fast and straightforward as possible. Only once this has been taken care of should you start to think about possible ways to support your accident compensation claim.
It is vital that you have a clear and consistent memory of what happened before, during and after your accident. This means that we need to have as many details as possible. Because you never know what the person who was responsible for your accident is likely to say in their defence, you will want to have all the details to hand, even ones that may seem irrelevant. In order to help you with this. We advise that you write down everything you can remember, as soon as possible after your accident. This should include all details that you think are relevant, especially focusing on anything that made your accident more likely.
It is also important that you try to get the names and contact details of anyone who witnessed your accident. You are welcome to get them to write down what they have seen, if this is simple to arrange, but if we have their names and contact information, we are able to do this for you at a later date if needed.
Videos and photographs of the area in which your accident took place can also be helpful, especially if they show any details which might have made your accident more likely or which led to your injuries being more serious than they should have been. Only take photographs and videos if you can do so legally and safely. If you are unsure, we are more than happy to organise this for you.
Whilst these can all help to support your claim later, none of them is essential and you are still able to have a successful accident compensation claim, even if you have not been able to achieve any of them. The most important thing you can do to help guarantee the success of your claim is to call our expert team or claim online to see how we can help.
