Our Compensation Calculator Provides You With the Answers
Did you know that our website features a compensation calculator that can provide you with accurate figures associated with injury claims? It is an excellent resource for our clients as well as members of the public to understand the type of compensation that is typically associated with certain injuries.
In order to understand how this calculator works, it’s worth delving a bit deeper into how claims are calculated.
Compensation is designed to get you back in the position you were in prior to the accident. The amount of compensation you receive in Northern Ireland is based on a number of factors. We often refer to the Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases in Northern Ireland from The Judicial Studies Board for Northern Ireland in order to have an idea of how much compensation our clients are entitled to. This document is commonly known as “The Green Book.”
The Green Book only provides guidance on the value for the injury. In many cases, the damages may actually be greater. Damages is another name for compensation and they are divided into General and Special categories. General damages are designed to compensate the injured party for any pain, suffering, and loss of amenity they have experienced. Special damages are awarded based on financial costs or losses that are incurred.
Find Out How Much Your Claim Is Worth
The amount that you are awarded is linked with the severity of the injury. In many cases, successful claimants might receive anything from £1,000 to several million. Explore the Paschal O’Hare compensation calculator for a better idea of how much each type of injury is worth. In addition to the figures fractured in the calculator, an injured party can also expect to recover any loss of earnings and costs of recovery.
