Compensation for chronic injury

 

Any chronic injury you have suffered over the last two years that was the direct result of the actions of another person could mean you have a claim under personal injury law.

The law that governs any harm that one person does to another is called tort. Tort law as it relates to chronic injury is not as precise as tort law in other areas of loss. This is why the services of a specialised personal injury solicitor is always advisable.

Chronic injuries

Because chronic injury will almost always have a medical component, you should attempt to gather as much medical documentation as you can. This evidence can be invaluable to your solicitor as they prepare your claim for compensation.

As the way in which a chronic injury has impacted on your life is not a precise equation that the court can use, a level of judgement is always part of these cases. Therefore, the stronger and more detailed your case the more compensation you are likely to receive.

Levels of possible compensation

Often the level of compensation you could get for a chronic injury will have many factors involved, such as on-going medical bills or your ability to work. The court will attempt to put a value on these to arrive at a compensation payment.

Your solicitor will be able to speak for you and represent you if your case comes to court. However, many chronic injury cases never actually come to court, as the defendant usually come to an out-of-court settlement with the claimant.

Your chronic injury may have had a profound impact on your life. Making a compensation claim could mean you have a sum of money to help you deal with the chronic injury you are living with.
