Please rest assured that we will work as hard as we can to get your case settled as soon as possible.
How much can I get?
There is no one size fits all solution we can use when it comes to calculating your entitlements.

Some of the main things a solicitor will consider when negotiating your entitlements will include.
- Any time off work and lost earnings
- Any future lost earnings
- Any changes in your ability to work
- Care or support, even if given to you for free by family or friends
- Any adaptations you might need to your home or vehicle
- Travel and accommodation expenses
