Framework for Compensation
Compensation for personal injury claims include general damages for pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, loss of past and future wages, but may also include other sums depending on each case.
Compensation is often paid out by an insurance company or an agency that manages such claims. These companies have their own dedicated team of professionals to manage a claim and the compensation sum payable. However, these companies cannot provide you with legal advice and it is best that you seek independent professional advice to determine the adequacy of the compensation offered and other alternative remedies available to you.
Generally, the amount of legal fees payable by the claimant is dependent on the claim’s complexity and the amount of work and time involved in resolving the claim. Successful claims in road traffic and industrial accident claims are substantively borne by the insurers. Legal fees for road traffic accident claims are also subject to the Public Trustee’s regulation.
