Being involved in an accident, whether it is an MVA, or a slip and fall, or even a workplace accident can be very traumatic. It can also result in financial losses. But how do you quantify the size of your losses, or determine whether the losses constitute a personal injury claim? In this post, we will explain it in more detail.

Am I Entitled to a Compensation Settlement?

Firstly, it has to be determined whether your injuries were caused by  the negligence, actions or inactions of another person or entity. You will have to provide proof that they were in fact guilty, and this can be proven by means of:

     photographs of the accident scene

     witness statements

     medical records, etc.

The settlement amount will have to be determined by an expert, based on a number of factors, including:

     the severity of the injury

     past, present and future expenses (medical and related out-of-pocket expenses)

     loss of current and future earnings

     pain and suffering

     loss of quality of life

Costs such as pain and suffering and loss of quality of life can be hard to determine, which is why it is important to hire a lawyer who is an accredited specialist in compensation law. Your lawyer can set you up with all the resources you need for your claim to succeed.
