What type of compensation can I claim for?

If you have suffered from a personal injury you may wish to consider making a claim for compensation to cover the losses you have suffered as a result of that injury.

The types of injuries you may claim for include any of the following:

  • an injury at work or in a traffic accident
  • a neck injury also know as a whiplash injury
  • an injury received as a result of faulty goods or services
  • an injury sustained by slipping, tripping and falling over

Lawyers split the compensation into two separate heads of claim: General Damages and Special Damages.

General Damages include compensation for the injury, i.e. pain, suffering and loss of amenity, future earnings and inability to carry on day to day tasks.

These aspects are likely to continue into the future and it is difficult to put a final figure on these losses at the start of the claim.

The level of compensation for the pain and suffering will depend on their duration and intensity.

Special Damages includes compensation for actual financial loss caused by the accident. These can include damage to clothing or other belongings, the cost of care, travel costs to the hospital, medical expenses and the cost of hiring and/or repairing a car if it has been damaged in the accident.

A good personal injury Solicitor can usually estimate the approximate amount of compensation that you are likely to be awarded at the start of your claim and will ensure that all your losses are included as part of the claim.

A good personal injury lawyer will also advise you what evidence you need in order to recover all of your compensation from the other party.
