Big Toe Injury Claims
Foreword to Big Toe Injury Claims
Big toe injury claims enable you to recover compensation when you have suffered an injury to your big toe due to an accident, a medical mistake or a developing condition for which somebody else was primarily to blame. Irrespective of how your injury was sustained, by making a successful claim for a big toe injury you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time your injury occurred, the effect that the damaged big toe has on your quality of life and any financial consequences of being incapacitated due to a big toe injury.
How to Make Big Toe Injury Claims
Big toe injury claims have to show that you have sustained an injury which resulted in a damaged big toe and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a big toe injury can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party is responsible for the damage to your big toe through their negligent actions – or lack of actions – can often be more difficult.
Police reports or accident reports may need to be compiled and evidence gathered in support of your big toe injury claim. At a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from a damaged big toe, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do and should not be made a priority before you have recovered from your big toe injury.
Therefore, it is in your best interests to discuss making big toe injury claims for compensation with a solicitor as soon as practically possible. A solicitor will assess your claim for a big toe injury, assist you where necessary to collect evidence in support of your big toe injury claim and advise you if you have a claim for big toe injury compensation which is worth your while to pursue.
Compensation Settlements for Big Toe Injury Claims
How much compensation for a big toe injury you will be entitled to receive will depend on your personal circumstances. A solicitor will calculate the value of your big toe injury claim by considering the severity of your injury in relation to your age, sex and general state of health prior to the incident which was responsible for your damaged big toe.
As mentioned above, the consequences of your big toe injury and the effect it has on your quality of life will also be taken into account when compiling a claim for big toe injury compensation. Along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while still suffering from a damaged big toe, any quantifiable psychological consequences of the accident which led to your big toe injury – for example any confidence issues you may have in the future – will also be integrated into your big toe injury claim for compensation.
You are also entitled to recover any financial costs which are directly attributable to your damaged big toe when making a claim for big toe injury compensation. These can range from expenses incurred seeking medical attention following an accident which led to your big toe injury, to additional transport costs if you are unable to drive while recovering from your damaged big toe. Any loss of income can also be recovered in a claim for big toe injury compensation – including overtime and pension contributions.
“No Win, No Fee” Claims for a Big Toe Injury
Provided that your solicitor believes there is a strong likelihood of your claim for big toe injury compensation being successful, he or she will usually be prepared to represent you in your big toe injury claim on a “No Win, No Fee” basis. This usually means that, should you lose your claim for big toe injury compensation, you will not owe your solicitor for their legal fees and, when your big toe injury claim is successful, you will retain 100 percent of your compensation settlement.
However, not all solicitors offer “No Win, No Fee” claims for a big toe injury on the same basis, and it may be necessary for you to take out an insurance policy to protect yourself from potential financial exposure should your claim for big toe injury compensation be unsuccessful and you become liable for the defendant´s legal fees. Your solicitor should explain the exact terms and conditions of a “No Win, No Fee” claim for a big toe injury prior to accepting your case.
