None of us leave home expecting to be injured in an accident caused by someone else, but it happens to many people every day. Sometimes it is a road traffic accident, but it is just as likely to be an accident at work or a slip, trip or fall accident in a public place. Accidents are not fussy who they choose to injure, and it could be any one of us at any time. If someone else has caused the accident, if you needed medical attention for your injuries, and you leave it no more than three years before making an accident claim in Tenby, or wherever it is you are located, you may be awarded compensation.
Compensation for an accident claim in Tenby
Compensation is made up of two main components. There is general compensation and special compensation.
- General compensation is for the pain and suffering you have been forced to endure, and for the way your life has been affected. Because of differing personal circumstances, two people with similar injuries could be awarded different amounts.
- Special compensation is to recoup any costs and losses the accident creates. No one should be worse off financially after an accident, so if you have to spend money on prescriptions, childcare, travelling or anything else that is injury related, make sure you keep receipts or some other proof of payment.
