Making an accident claim in Taunton Deane for a car crash
Have you been involved in a car crash? Was the incident caused by someone else? If so, there is every chance that you will be entitled to compensation. Read on to discover everything you should know about this type of accident claim in Taunton Deane.
The first thing you need to do is determine whether you have the basis for a claim. Ask yourself the following three questions.
- Did the accident occur as a result of someone else’s error or negligence?
- Did you see a doctor for your injuries?
- Did the incident happen within the last three years?
If you have answered yes to those three answers there is a strong chance you will be entitled to compensation and thus you should definitely go ahead and make an accident claim in Taunton Deane.
When it comes to getting compensation, this will be split into two parts; general damages and special damages. Firstly, you will be compensated for the injury you have suffered. This amount will be calculated based on the severity of the injury and the impact it is having on your life.
The second part of the compensation is special damages. This will compensate you for any out of pocket expenses you have encountered as a direct result of the incident. Here are some examples.
- Treatment expenses
- Prescription costs
- Loss of income
- Accommodation expenses
- Travel fees
- Childcare costs
- Vehicle repair costs
- Counselling expenses
Essentially you need to ask yourself this; Would I have suffered the cost if the injury had not occurred? If the answer is no, then you can consider this a special damage. Please note that you will need to have proof of all costs entailed.
