Personal injury compensation - how it gets calculated
Personal injury compensation is calculated differently depending on your claim type and your individual circumstances. In most cases, a monetary value is placed on the gap between your predicted life path before the injury, and your actual life path since the injury. Shine Lawyers can help you every step of the way and get you the compensation you need following your injury.
Depending on your case, compensation for personal injury may include:
- Medical or professional expenses
- Financial loss or loss of earnings
- Damage to or loss of property
- Physical or psychological pain and suffering
