How much compensation can I get?

Because every car accident is different, the level of compensation awarded will vary on a case by case basis. That being said, compensation is calculated by three major factors:

  • The severity of their injuries
  • Financial losses they have incurred, and are liable to incur due to incapacitation
  • Their level of culpability in causing the accident

One or a combination of these facets of a car accident can determine your level of compensation.
