Compensation Payouts For An Injury In Bamber Bridge
If you’ve had an accident in Bamber Bridge, you may be wondering how much compensation you could claim. Personal injury claim payouts are awarded on a case by case basis, based on each claim’s individual circumstances. Because of this, we can’t offer an average personal injury compensation payout. But you can still get an idea of what you could potentially receive.
The Judicial College Guidelines (JCG) is a document that solicitors refer to when calculating general damages. This is the head of your claim that covers your injuries as well as the pain and suffering you experience as a result. The JCG provides solicitors with guideline amounts for this head of personal injury compensation, some examples of which you could find below.
|Injury Type||Compensation Bracket||Notes|

Time Limits For Bamber Bridge Personal Injury Claims
The usual time limit for commencing a personal injury claim is three years from when your injuries occurred. If in your case, your injuries or illness could not be immediately identified, then the time limit starts from the day your injuries/illness was diagnosed. This all legally applies under the Limitation Act 1980.
In some circumstances, the personal injury claims time limit may be suspended, at least on a temporary basis. For instance, if the injured party is under the age of 18, then the three year time limit for claiming will be put on hold for them. It will remain on hold until the injured party reaches their 18th birthday. The time limit will also be suspended if the injured party lacks the mental capacity to make independent decisions. If mental capacity sufficiently recovers at a later date, then the time limit will be applied from the day this occurs.
When an injured party is currently under the age of 18 or lacks the mental capacity to make their own decisions, then that party is unable to start a personal injury claim on their own. However, in these circumstances, a representative may be able to claim on behalf of the injured party. This representative, formally referred to as a litigation friend, could be someone close to the injured party, such as a family member, guardian or friend.
What Could I Earn From A Bamber Bridge Personal Injury Claim?
If you meet the criteria to start a personal injury claim in Bamber Bridge, then you may receive compensation for two types of damages should your case succeed. These damages which you may be compensated for include the following:
- General damages – Compensation for general damages is intended to cover you for the injuries and illnesses you suffered due to negligent behaviour. The exact amount of compensation you could receive for general damages can vary substantially. It largely depends on the exact injuries and illnesses caused by negligence and how severe they are. Medical evidence is a vital requirement to receive any general damages through your claim.
- Special damages – If you’re capable of receiving compensation for general damages, then you could possibly also receive compensation for special damages on top of this. Compensation for special damages may be provided in order to compensate for financial losses directly linked to the accident and injuries which your personal injury claim is focused on.
