How Much Compensation Could I Receive After a Road Accident in Nottingham?
The amount of compensation you could receive after a road accident in Nottingham depends on many factors. As such, there are two potential heads of claim that could form your overall settlement: general damages and special damages.
General damages relate to the suffering and pain caused by injuries you sustained as a result of negligence. This can relate to any physical or psychological injury caused. Furthermore, you can claim for multiple injuries as part of the same claim if they were created or exacerbated by the same accident. The Judicial College has created compensation brackets relating to different injuries at varying levels of severity. The guidelines they have produced are often referred to by legal professionals to help them when valuing claims. They are based on previous compensation payouts. You can see some of these compensation brackets below.
|Injury Type||Severity of Injury||Compensation Bracket||Features of Injury|
|Neck||Moderate (i)||£23,460 to £36,120||Injuries might include dislocations or fractures that cause immediate symptoms that could lead to requiring spinal fusion.|
|Back||Severe (iii)||£36,390 to £65,440||Injuries might include disc fractures or disc lesions as well as soft tissue injuries that cause chronic conditions where, despite treatment, disabilities such as impaired agility and severe discomfort and pain, remain.|
|Pelvis and Hips||Lesser Injuries (ii)||Up to £3,710||Minor soft tissue injuries where a complete recovery is made.|
|Pelvis and Hips||Severe (ii)||£58,100 to £73,580||This bracket might include cases of a pelvic fracture dislocation involving both pubic and ischial rami leading to impotence.|
|Brain||Moderate (iii)||£40,410 to £85,150||The ability to work is reduced as well as concentration and memory being affected. There is also a small risk of epilepsy.|
|Arm||(b)||£36,770 to £56,180||Injuries that result in a permanent and substantial disability. For example, serious fractures of one or both forearms where a significant, permanent and residual disability occurs, whether cosmetic or functional.|
|Hand||(a)||£90,250 to £102,890||Where one hand has been completely or effectively lost. For example, a hand that has been crushed leading to it being surgically amputated.|
|Leg||(iv)||£91,950 to £124,800||Where one leg is amputated below the knee with no complications. This would lead to an award towards the bottom of this bracket.|
|Knee||Moderate (i)||£13,920 to £24,580||Torn meniscus or cartilage causing wasting, weakness, minor instability or other mild future disabilities.|
|Foot||Serious||£23,460 to £36,790||Cases where foot injuries lead to continuing pain from traumatic arthritis or causes the risk of future arthritis, prolonged treatment with fusion surgery potentially being required.|
Please remember that this only gives you an idea of what you could receive for a car crash in Nottingham. In successful cases, the compensation amount awarded is based on many different factors so you could receive a different amount to what is listed above. This is also not an exhaustive list of potential injuries that you could claim for.
The other head of claim is special damages. Special damages relate to the financial losses suffered due to the injury. Some examples of losses you could claim for include, loss of earnings, travel costs, private healthcare costs, care costs and loss of future earnings. You would need evidence, such as receipts, invoices and bank statements to show the value of these losses.
