The HGV accident compensation claims experts at Michael Lewin Solicitors have recently settled another case successfully. Mrs O was awarded a very satisfying four figure sum in personal injury compensation following an accident on the roads that was not her fault.
If you have been hit by an HGV driver on the road and the accident was the fault of the HGV driver you may be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. In order to qualify for a compensation award for your injuries you must start your HGV claim within three years of receiving your injury in the accident.
If you do make a claim for personal injury compensation after an accident involving an HGV your award amount will be appropriate for the level of injury you have sustained. In order to calculate the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to your solicitor will request to see any medical records that you have relating to treatment for the injuries you sustained. In addition to this you may be asked to see a specialist or an independent physician so that the full extent of your injuries can be explored. This is to ensure that you are getting the compensation you deserve.
The amount of compensation you are awarded just for your injury comes from the general damages part of your claim. The nature and extent of the injury you sustained is the main factor that is taken into consideration; compensation is awarded for pain and suffering. The more severe your injury and the longer time you had to endure pain and suffering the greater your award amount will be.
Michael Lewin Solicitors are incredibly proud to have such a strong team of HGV accident compensation claims experts within the company. We will always aim to get you the full amount of compensation you deserve.
In addition to the general damages element of you claim we may also be able to secure you compensation for any financial losses you have incurred as a result of your injuries. In order to apply for this additional compensation you need to provide proof of the following:
? Copies of your wage slips showing any loss of wages you have had as a result of being unable to work.
? Any fuel receipts and parking tickets from having to travel to receive treatment.
? Any prescription fees you have had to pay for medication directly related to your accident injuries.
