The compensation will be determined when the claims assessor has acquired the necessary additional information. Additional information may be acquired, for example, about possible new treatment visits and compensations and benefits paid by other bodies. Once the compensation has been assessed, a claims decision will be drawn up and compensation will be paid.

Further claims for compensation may be received over a period of several years if the patient injury requires a long treatment period, or the period of incapacity for work is prolonged. Therefore, several decisions concerning the amount of compensation payable may be made in practice over the course of the claim period.
