Question:

What am I eligible to receive for muscle injury compensation? I was involved in a car accident for which I was clearly not at fault.

Answer:

Determining what you may be entitled to receive for muscle injury compensation depends on various factors. As you have already ascertained the car accident was not your fault, you meet the first condition of a muscle injury compensation claim (or any injury claim for that matter): your injury is due, either partly or entirely, to someone else’s negligence.

The actual amount of your muscle injury compensation settlement will then depend as much on the severity of your muscle injury and your prognosis for healing, as on its consequential impact on your finances and earnings. In addition to muscle injury compensation for pain and suffering and its effect on your quality of life (such as your ability to partake in your usual activities), you may find that you have substantial costs related to recovery (such as treatment and prescription drug costs). You may also be faced with needing to take time off work, resulting in loss of earnings. These are all matters which may be addressed through your claim for muscle injury compensation.

Your final muscle injury compensation settlement will also take into account whether you have contributed to your injury. For example, if you were considered to bear even the slightest responsibility for causing the accident, your settlement amount may be reduced to reflect this judgment.

It may also be the case that the insurance company of the liable party may contact you with an early settlement offer. More likely than not, an early offer will be inappropriate to the level of injury you have suffered, and should therefore be referred to a personal injury solicitor.

Due to the points raised above, it is in your interests to speak with a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to establish not only the strength of your case, but also what you may be entitled to receive for your muscle injury compensation.
