What types of damage could I be compensated for?
Being injured or made ill, can have a negative effect on your bank balance as well as your health and well being. In addition to claiming general damages for your suffering, you could also claim special damages to recover the financial standing you had prior to your injury. For example, you may have had to miss work and suffered a loss of earnings as a result. Similarly, you may have had to pay out of pocket for medical expenses and the like. Here are some examples of injury-related costs that could be recovered through special damages:
- Medical expenses, like private treatment not offered by the NHS
- Loss of earnings or bonuses, including loss of future earnings
- Travel expenses for appointments related to your injury
- Adaptation to property, such as the installation of a stairlift
- Care costs, including gracious care provided by loved ones
How much compensation could I be entitled to?
The important thing to remember when discussing compensation is that every case is unique. Therefore, there is no such thing as an average payout. With this in mind, if you’re interested in seeing how much compensation you could be entitled to, we have a team of specialist advisors on hand to provide you with a free consultation. By providing a few details about your case, they can tell you whether you could have valid grounds to claim and how much it could potentially be worth.
How are claims valued?
Generally speaking, the more suffering you endured as a result of third-party negligence, the more compensation you could be entitled to. Whether you experienced physical injuries, psychological damage or financial losses, these are all types of damage that could be compensated as part of a personal injury claim.
Is there a time limit for me to claim?
Yes, personal injury claims are time-limited. Typically, claimants have 3 years to begin making their claim, otherwise, they may no longer be eligible for compensation. This limitation period usually begins from the date of the incident in question or the date that the claimant realised that their suffering was a result of third-party negligence.
