Average Compensation Payments For Accidents In London
Although we understand why you want to know how much compensation you can receive for your accident, every compensation claim is unique. The amount that you receive will depend on the exact nature of your injuries and how severe an impact your accident has had on your life.
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.
The other part of the compensation claim is based on the ways in which your accident has impacted your life. This part of the compensation claim for your accident is there to help you get your life back as close as possible to the way it would have been if your accident had not happened, so it is important to ensure that you claim for every cost and expense you have incurred as a result of your accident. This could be additional medical support that is difficult to obtain on the NHS, such as physiotherapy, or even making modifications to your home if necessary. If you need to take time off from work in order to recover from your accident, your loss of earnings would be included in this aspect of the compensation.
Expert help from our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors means that you can be sure that you are claim for all of the expenses you are entitled to. This means that you will have the financial support you need to get your life back on track as quickly as possible.
How Long Will It Take To Receive My Compensation As A Result Of My Accident Claim In London?
Some accident compensation claims can take much longer than others, based on the exact details of the case. We work tirelessly to ensure that your case is resolved as quickly as possible, to allow you to get the compensation you need to move on with your life.
Cases that are resolved quickly can take as little as just a few weeks. For a case to completed this fast, it has to be very simple and the other party will have accepted that they were to blame for your accident or injury almost straight away. This removes the need for time-consuming tasks such as gathering evidence and demonstrating who was responsible for what happened to you. These cases are usually for less serious injuries involving smaller sums of money, as this reduces the incentive for the other party to put significant effort into reducing your claim through negotiation.
More complicated cases include those where the other person does not accept that they were liable for what happened to you, or if multiple people were all partially to blame. In these situations, your case may take far longer to be resolved and for you to get the compensation you need. If your case has to go to court, it will also take much longer to be completed.

How Do Accident Compensation Claims In London Work?
Making an accident compensation claim for your accident or injury follows a relatively simple, straightforward process.
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 will write to the person to blame for your accident on your behalf. We inform them that you are making a compensation claim for your injuries and that you hold them responsible. We give them a deadline by which they need to either accept that this is true, or provide an explanation as to why they disagree.
If the other party refuses to accept that they were to blame in your accident, we will find and send evidence to support your claim. This might include photographs of the location in which your accident took place, a copy of the company’s accident book, witness statements and anything else that might be relevant. For workplace accidents in particular, it is very unusual for liability to be disputed for long.
When we have established with the other party that they were to blame for your accident, we will then begin negotiations to decide how much compensation is fair following your injuries. There are many tactics and techniques used by the other side to try to convince you to accept a lower amount than you are entitled to. Whether to accept or reject an offer of compensation is always up to you, but our expert guidance and advice will allow you to be sure that the amount you agree to is a fair reflection of what you are entitled to.
It is very rare for it to be impossible to reach agreement on the settlement amount for a personal injury compensation claim. In cases where the other person refuses to accept liability, or if we are not able to reach agreement as to a fair amount of compensation, we may need to go to court to get you the compensation you deserve.
How Do I Begin My Accident Compensation Claim In London?
Our expert team of personal injury claims solicitors have years of experience helping people who have been through an accident, just like you. Although the idea of making an accident compensation claim might seem daunting, our accident specialists are here to help.

We are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, to make sure that you can access the help you need at a time that suits you.

We want to make sure that we fully understand what has happened to you. This means that we will listen to all of the details of your accident, including the ways that your accident has impacted your life, the full extent of your injuries and all of the circumstances surrounding your accident, including who you believe was to blame. This information is essential if we are to give you accurate estimates of the amount of compensation that you are likely to receive, as well as the likelihood of winning your case.
What Do I Need To Know To Make An Accident Claim In London?
Many people who have suffered an accident, just like you, are not sure whether they are entitled to claim for compensation. Making an accident compensation claim is easy, and if the following requirements are fulfilled, you are entitled to compensation for what has happened to you.
The first essential requirement is that you must have sustained some kind of damage or loss as a result of an accident that you have experienced. Narrowly avoiding injury can be alarming and worrying, but you are only able to claim compensation for the damage you have actually sustained.
The second requirement is that someone must have been responsible for avoiding your accident, or making it less serious. For accidents at work, this can be very easy to establish, as your employer has a statutory duty of care. This means that they have a legal responsibility to look after your health and safety. In other situations, the person who is responsible (the legal term is liable) may be the owner of a building, or anyone else who had control over the situation or location.
The person who was to blame for your accident must have been able to predict or foresee this event occurring. This is not saying that they must have known that it would happen, but it must have been sufficiently plausible that a reasonable person in that role should have been able to anticipate something along those lines taking place.
Finally, they must not have taken sufficient measures to protect you. This could be in terms of putting in measures to avoid your accident, or in terms of making sure that the consequences are as mild as possible.
If you were the victim of an accident that wasn’t your fault, we want to help you get the compensation you deserve. Call our expert team of accident specialists or claim online today to arrange your free, no obligation consultation.
What Should You Do After Your Accident In London?
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.
One of the simplest things that you can do to support your accident compensation claim is to write down everything you remember about your accident. This includes the period leading up to the accident, anything that you believe may have contributed to your accident and the aftermath, as well as the event itself. Writing it down as soon as possible after your accident means that you can be sure that you won’t forget any relevant details and that your account will be as complete as possible.
It can also be extremely helpful for your accident compensation claim if you have noted down the contact details for anyone who witnessed your accident. Having access to supporting evidence from others who witnessed your accident can be a powerful tool in convincing the person responsible for your accident that they should settle your accident compensation claim before it gets to court, as well as for convincing the court to rule in your favour if the case does go all the way to court.
You may also want to try to obtain photographs or videos which might be relevant to your case, especially of the location in which your accident occurred, provided it is safe to do so.
Whilst these things can help with your accident compensation claim, they are not essential and you should not pressure yourself to do them if you do not feel able following your accident. The most important step, however, is to call us or claim online today. This simple task will get you access to expert legal advice and provide you with the support you need, throughout your accident compensation claim.
