    A Guide To Calculating The Compensation You Are Entitled To

    The process of claiming compensation can be overwhelming. It is important to know the details of the costs involved.

    With this guide to calculating the compensation you are entitled to we can give you the information you need to give you the best possible chance of getting the compensation you deserve.

    What You Could Potentially Claim For

    • Vehicle Repairs – it is worth checking this because you may have to pay for repairs from your excess
    • Item Replacements – for example if your leathers are damaged in a motorcycle accident you can potentially claim for that
    • Lost Wages – if your accident prevents you from working you can be compensated for this
    • Travel Costs – if an injury prevents you from riding a bike and you are forced to use public transport that you would not get otherwise
    • Medical Costs – this can include prescription charges, physiotherapy and so forth

    The Importance of Accuracy

    It is vital for people to understand that accuracy when making a claim is vital and exaggerating costs can result in a potential refusal of your claim – you need to be able to show how you have come up with a figure. Fortunately, there are a few simple ways to ensure accuracy.

    Keep receipts

    The simplest thing to do is to keep receipts, this is because you need to be able to demonstrate that you have paid a certain amount for certain goods and services. You should then be able to claim for any replacements you have to get as a result of an accident that was not your fault.

    If you have not purchased replacements yet then it is important to get official quotes from websites or companies in order to show what you will need to purchase.
