How much money will I get for my injury claim ?
How much compensation you are entitled to depends on a number of factors:-
a) What type of injury: So a broken foot, will attract a higher level of compensation than soft tissue injury or bruising.
b) How long the symptoms last for: So, a whiplash injury which is expected to last 6 months will attract a lower level of compensation than a whiplash injury which is expected to last 12 months
c) How the injury impacts upon your day to day life: An office typist would arguably achieve a higher award for a broken wrist than say a receptionist in the same firm who uses a hands free telephone system.
Some rough examples are as follows:
Whiplash injury to the neck where a
Full recovery takes place within 1 – 2 Years £3,100 to £5,600
