Most people do not realise that there is a personal injury claims time limit, but unfortunately there is.

The time limits on most claims is three years. This means you have three years from the date of the accident for court proceedings to be issued. So, if you were injured on November 11th 2018 you will have until November 11th of 2021 for court proceedings to be issued.

There are incidents that prove to be a little trickier. This is when symptoms have developed over time, in which case you have three years from the diagnosis. You can also claim on the behalf of your child. If you don’t, they will have three years to claim when they turn 18.

The first thing you need to do is make sure you see a medical professional. It is vital to get your injuries checked out. Not only is this important in terms of your well being, but you will struggle to make a claim if you do not have a medical report from your doctor.

I Was Hurt In An Accident At Iceland, What Can My Claim Include Compensation For?

Let’s be realistic, when it comes to making a personal injury claim, the main thing we all want to know is how much money we will get. Nobody wants to waste their time or money making a claim if they are going to get nothing in return. After all, it is likely that your injuries will have caused you enough stress as it is.

When it comes to a compensation claim, the money you receive will be split into two parts. Firstly you have general damages, which will compensate you for your suffering. Secondly you have special damages, which will compensate you for any out of pocket expenses you have experienced.

Let’s begin with general damages. These are for the injuries you have suffered. The amount you receive will be calculated based on the severity of your injuries and the impact they are having on your everyday life. Needless to say, the more serious your injuries are the more compensation you will be awarded.

Special damages are designed to compensate you for any out of pocket expenses you have suffered as a result of your injuries. Here are some common examples:

  • Treatment expenses
  • Cost of counselling
  • Loss of income
  • Travel costs
  • Childcare expenses
  • Repair costs

Ask yourself the following… Will I have experienced this cost if I hadn’t been injured? If the answer is no, then it counts as a special damage. Nevertheless, you will need to keep proof of these costs, so make sure you do not throw away your receipts and such like.

Iceland Supermarket Accident Compensation Claims Calculator

Now that you have a better idea regarding how compensation is calculated, you probably want to know the exact figure you will receive, right? The truth is that this differs from claim to claim. This is because all cases are handled on an individual basis. The ins and outs of your claim are assessed, and you are awarded a figure accordingly. You do not receive a set figure from a list of payouts so to speak. This is why we always recommend that people do not pin their hopes on tools like a personal injury claims calculator because they only ever give a very rough estimate, and they have been way off the mark a lot of times. The best thing to do is take a look at the table below and you can see the typical payout for injuries that happen in supermarkets.

No Win, No Fee Iceland Supermarket Accident Claims

There are so many people throughout the country who could have secured compensation yet they never made a claim. One of the key reasons for this is because they are put off by the extortionate costs that are charged by some solicitors. This is understandable, as there are some lawyers who charge huge fees. However, this does not apply to all of them, and so you simply need to know how to narrow down your search effectively.

When looking for a personal injury lawyer, there are some key questions you should ask to make sure you are getting a good deal. These are as follows:

  • How much will the case cost me overall?
  • Are there any extra fees for certain services?
  • How are your fees worked out?
  • Will you work to a No Win, No Fee payment structure?

These four questions give you a great starting point when coming to terms with the prices that are charged by various solicitors all over the United Kingdom. Luckily, you don’t need to look far though, as we offer the perfect solution at Accident Claims UK, and this is No Win, No Fee.

One of the most vital things is to make sure you choose a personal injury solicitor who will provide a No Win, No Fee service. For those of you who are unaware, this simply means that you are only going to pay legal fees if your case is a success. This means that the amount you pay is based on the outcome of your case, and so this reduces the risk that is typically associated with making a claim by a considerable degree.

This leads to other knock-on benefits as well, as you are much more likely to benefit from a better service when you go for a No Win, No Fee solicitor. After all, the pay they get is performance related, and thus they are accountable for the service they provide. The same cannot be said for those who charges by the hour. They receive the same sum of money regardless, and thus there is no incentive for them to put more effort in.
