When making a personal injury claim one of the most important things you would want to know is the value of your claim, we understand that and have created our online Personal Injury Claims Calculator.
At Hamilton Douglas Legal, our personal injury claims compensation calculator can be used to determine an approximate value of your personal injury claim, along with personal injury compensation levels that determine the total value of the claim. Compensation values depend on many factors such as the severity of the injury, the length of suffering, the cost of treatment and the impact it has had on your daily life.
Below you will find an approximate value of your compensation for General Damages. You may have suffered injury to other parts of your body, these injuries will also count towards your total compensation valuation.
Please note the value of compensation is approximate and it is not possible to give an exact valuation, contact us for a more accurate valuation of your injuries, the amounts will vary depending on your personal circumstances. Many factors have to be considered when making a personal injury compensation calculation, as a result we suggest you contact one of our specialists who will be able to make a more accurate assessment of your claim.
