Harrogate Personal Injury Solicitors FAQs

What accidents could I claim for?

These could include falls, slips, trips, accidents in the workplace and also any road traffic accidents (RTAs).

What is a good settlement offer?

This is an offer that reaches around 80% of the compensation target that you have in mind.

And what does the settlement consist of?

A typical settlement amount comprises both general damages and special damages.

What are general damages?

General damages focus on the primary pain and suffering that the accident victim endures.

And what about special damages?

These highlight additional expenses such as medication, hospital transportation costs and any home renovations for long-term sufferers.

What is the likelihood of the claim ending up in court?

This is pretty low because they generally try to settle out of court whenever the defendant admits liability.

And why is this?

It’s because there are additional legal costs for both parties if the case goes before a judge.

So, what is the upside in the case going to court?

Theoretically, the victim then has the best chance of achieving maximum compensation for their case.
