How Much Compensation Is Awarded For Iceland Accidents?
Although we understand the desire to know the average compensation payments for an Iceland accident, every compensation payment is different, and the ranges can be very wide indeed. This is because the compensation you receive is directly related not just to the injuries you have received but also to the impact this has had upon your life.
Compensation claims are comprised of two main parts. The first, and usually the easiest to calculate, is to compensate you for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries. The follows guidelines set down nationally by the Judicial College, which provides a range of payments that are considered appropriate for any particular injury. These ranges can be very broad, as they are designed to take into account the individual nature of your personal injury.
The second aspect to be considered when deciding a compensation claim is any costs or financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your Iceland accident. The aim of financial compensation following your Iceland accident is to get you back as close as possible to where your life would have been had your Iceland accident not happened. This could involve compensating you for loss of earnings if you have to take time off work to recover from your Iceland accident, or even paying a larger sum for the loss of potential future earnings if you are unable to return to your former career as a result of your injuries. You may also need to pay for additional transportation costs, fees for additional medical treatment not easily available on the NHS or making modifications to your home in severe cases if that is needed to help you to continue to live independently.
With our team of dedicated Iceland accident claims specialists, you will have the expert advice you need to ensure that you are claiming for all of the expenses that you are entitled to. This will ensure that you have the money you need to support you and your recovery.
How Long Do Iceland Accident Compensation Claims Take?
It can be hard to know how long a particular Iceland accident compensation case will take, as some can be settled very quickly, while others will take much longer to be decided. We know that you want to put your Iceland accident behind you as quickly as possible, so we do everything that we can to resolve your claim as quickly as possible.
Some cases can be resolved in a matter of just a few weeks or months. These tend to be the easier claims to process, where the other party does not try to claim that the accident wasn’t their fault and where they are keen to agree the compensation amount as quickly as possible. Less severe injuries also tend to be quicker to resolve, as the amounts of money involved are smaller and the other party is less likely to want to put in the additional effort to argue about how much you deserve.
Personal injury compensation claims which take longer to be resolved tend to be the very complicated ones. This could be because the injuries involved are very serious, requiring lots of evidence and testimony to understand the appropriate amount of compensation. Alternatively, it could be because the other person refuses to accept liability, or liability is shared between multiple parties. Complicated claims like these will usually take far longer to be resolved.

Is There A Time Limit On Making an Iceland Accident Compensation Claim?
It is important that you make your Iceland accident compensation claim as soon as you can after your accident. All claims should be made within 2 years of the incident that caused your injury, unless there are exceptional circumstances. If you are approaching this point, it is important that you talk with our personal injury solicitors today. They will be able to advise you on how best to proceed.
In some cases, it can be important to wait a little time after the accident or injury before making the claim, as long as you stay within the two-year time limit. This is useful when the injuries you have sustained have not fully healed and where there is a chance that they could take longer to heal or be more serious than you realized. Taking advice from our personal injury specialists is not the same as starting a claim however. If you have suffered an accident or injury, contact as soon as possible to discuss your options and have the best chance of making the best possible case.
The Process Of Making an Iceland Accident Compensation Claim
Making any Iceland accident personal injury claim for compensation follows the same, simple process.
It is helpful to make sure that you have the legal support you will need before you begin making your Iceland accident compensation claim. Our dedicated personal injury claims specialists are here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you with the claims process. Call us or claim online now and we will arrange to call you back at a time that suits you.
Once we are able to act on your behalf, we write to the person at fault in your Iceland accident. We let them know that you are making a compensation claim following your accident, and we request that they acknowledge that it was their fault (this is known as us asking them to accept liability). We will give them a deadline by which they must respond.
If the respondent denies liability, we will need to gather and present evidence to them, demonstrating that they were at fault for your accident. This evidence can take many different forms. It might be pictures of the location where your accident took place, videos of the accident happening if these are available or statements from people who were there when your accident happened who can explain the exact situation. More technical legal and medical arguments may also be relevant. Almost all employers will accept liability, once presented with the evidence that we gather.
Once the other party has accepted that they are liable and that they will need to pay compensation following your accident, we then need to begin negotiations to decide the exact amount of compensation that is fair. Although we conduct the negotiations on your behalf, you are always in control. We will inform you of every single offer that is made, even if we recommend that you reject it. We will give you our honest, unbiased advice, based on our years of experience, as to whether you should accept or reject any specific offer, but we will always support your decision. If you reject an offer, we will explain to the other side why, and the reasons that we believe you deserve a higher amount.
Almost all personal injury compensation claims are resolved through the above process. In very rare cases, the other party will either not accept that they were at fault, or they will refuse to offer a fair amount of compensation given your injuries. In these situations, we may need to go to court to allow a judge to decide your case. If this happens, we will support you throughout the process.

I Suffered an Iceland Accident. Can I Claim Compensation?
Many people are confused as to whether they are allowed to make a compensation claim. Compensation claims following an Iceland accident are relatively simple, but there are a few things that must be true for you to be entitled to compensation.
The most basic requirement for making an Iceland accident compensation claim is that you must have suffered an Iceland accident and had some form of damage or loss as a result. Your injury could be either physical or mental, but you cannot make a compensation claim if you have not experienced any negative consequences from your Iceland accident. Although experiencing a near miss can be alarming, you are only able to claim for accidents that actually happened, not those which you narrowly avoided.
The second aspect to consider is who you believe is to blame for what happened to you. If you want to make an Iceland accident compensation claim, you will need to claim against a person or organisation. You will need to show that they had some kind of responsibility for your welfare. In the case of an accident or injury at work, your employer has this kind of legal responsibility. As a result, you are almost always able to make a compensation claim for accidents that occurred in the workplace.
It is also essential that the other party could have reasonably been expected to anticipate your Iceland accident. This is not the same as saying that they must have known that it would happen, but it must have been something that could have been predicted with enough thought and careful attention.
The final consideration is what measures were taken to protect you. If no protective measures were put in place, your claim is highly likely to be successful. If they did take some steps to keep you safe, you may still be able to claim if these were not sufficient, given the degree of risk.
If you have been injured as the result of an Iceland accident and there was someone else who could have helped to avoid or minimise your injuries, you are able to make an Iceland accident compensation claim. If you are in this position, call us or claim online today.
How To Respond Following an Iceland Accident
If you have suffered an Iceland accident, the most important thing is always to make sure that you get the medical treatment you need. Once you know that you are safe and being taken care of, there are a few things that can help to get you the compensation you deserve.
The first thing anyone who has experienced an Iceland accident should do, once they are safe, is to make a written record of what has happened. This should include any details that you can remember. The more detailed your account is, the better it will be as evidence. You should try to include details, even if they seem irrelevant, as they may help you remember more later.
It is also important that you try to get the names and contact details of anyone who witnessed your Iceland accident. You are welcome to get them to write down what they have seen, if this is simple to arrange, but if we have their names and contact information, we are able to do this for you at a later date if needed.
Photographs or videos of the location in which your Iceland accident occurred can also be very useful, especially if they show anything that you believe made your Iceland accident more likely. Ideally, these would have a time and location stamp embedded in the data (so taking them using your phone can help), but this is not essential.
All of these pieces of supporting evidence can help your case, but we know that there are many situations in which you may not be in a position to provide any of these. Our Iceland accident compensation claims specialists are here to help, and this includes gathering the evidence needed to support your claim. The most important step you can take to make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve is to call us or claim online. We are here 24/7 to make sure that you have the help you need when making your Iceland accident compensation claim.
