Making an accident claim whether it is an accident at work or a travel claim can often be confusing and stressful. There are so many costs and fees to take into consideration that it is difficult knowing what to claim for and how much to ask for in compensation. Although your lawyer should decide this you will still have a say in the matter and there is a lot to think about.
Is there a particular amount I should claim for after my travel accident?
Each travel compensation claim is unique and individual and should be treated as such. Although the law will set limitations on how much you can claim, you and your lawyer need to think about all the financial losses that occur from your travel injury. This could be hospital stays in a foreign country, prescription fees, loss of money from hotel rooms not used and maybe even flight costs that were lost as you couldn’t travel home that day.
What else do I need to consider when making a travel accident compensation claim?
You need to think about everything when making a travel accident compensation claim so don’t only think about the holiday. Consider whether you had to take any time off due to your travel injury thus loss of earnings, or any bill payments missed due to lack of earnings. This should all be added up in order to come to a sum of compensation to claim for.
When making a travel accident claim it is best not to represent yourself and is far less stressful to have legal representation to help and guide you through the whole process.
