Personal Injury Claims Calculator
You must be aware that no two personal injury claims are the same. Each claim for personal injury compensation is assessed on its individual merits and settled according to various factors that can impact a plaintiff´s quality of life.
You will see each quick 30 second calculators advertised across the internet, promising to offer an exact figure on a potential personal injury claim return for your case within seconds. We wouldn’t recommend using these tools. Until you give a full insight into your case, including the background story and injuries suffered, it will be impossible to draw up an accurate estimate.
According to a report published by the PIAB a few years ago, it was noted that the average amount paid out per neck injury is €15,000, and serious damage can result in payments of up to €77,900. That’s an extensive range to cover, and it has to make you wonder how a 30-second calculator has the intelligence to draw up an accurate figure.
Stages of a Personal Injury Claim
The first question people often ask when considering pursuing personal injury claims is “how long does a personal injury claim take to settle?” A very understandable question, accidents can be traumatic, and the recovery process can be long and gruelling. The last thing this person will want is the stress of a long and stretched case bearing over them.
The key stages of the personal injury claim settlement process are listed below:
- Working out who was responsible.
- Gathering important evidence.
- Assessing your injuries.
- Arranging medical care.
- Review recovery.
- Working out a deserved compensation amount.
- Reaching a settlement.
- Payment of compensation
Personal Injury Claims Time Limits
You should always get legal advice as soon as possible if you wish to claim compensation.
The most common claim in a personal injury case is negligence and the time limit for this is two years. This means that court proceedings must be issued within twoyears from you were first aware that you have suffered an injury.
Occasionally, a court may decide to extend a time limit, but this will depend on your case’s circumstances.
