When determining the value of a personal injury claim resulting from a road traffic accident, several factors come into play.
The severity of your injuries, including physical and psychological trauma, plays a significant role.
More severe injuries that result in long-term disability or require ongoing medical treatment often lead to higher compensation.
Additionally, medical expenses, such as hospital bills, surgeries, medications, and future medical costs, are taken into account. It’s important to keep detailed records of these expenses to ensure an accurate assessment.
Loss of earnings is another crucial factor. If the accident caused you to miss work or reduced your earning capacity, you may be entitled to compensation for both the income you have lost and potential future earnings that may be affected by your injuries.
Compensation also accounts for pain and suffering, encompassing the physical pain, emotional distress, and the impact on your quality of life caused by the accident. These general damages are calculated based on the nature and extent of your injuries.
While it is challenging to provide an exact figure without assessing the specifics of your case, it is worth noting that compensation amounts for road traffic accidents can vary significantly. They can range from a few thousand euros for minor injuries to substantial settlements for severe and life-altering injuries.
