    Accident claim in Epsom and Ewell


    Common types of special damages claimed for when making an accident claim in Epsom and Ewell

    When it comes to making a successful accident claim in Epsom and Ewell you will receive two types of compensation.

    • The first is general damages. This is the money you are going to receive for the suffering you have experienced. This is determined based on the extent of your injury and the impact it is having on your everyday life.
    • Aside from this, you will also get special damages. This is compensation for any costs you have experienced because of the incident. Read on for some common examples…

    Treatment and Medication Expenses

    There is of course only one place to begin and this is with medical costs. If you have sustained an injury it is likely you will have had to pay for treatment or at least a prescription. You will be able to claim for this if you have kept the receipts as proof of purchase.

    Loss of Income

    Have you found yourself in a position where you are unable to work during the recovery process? For some people this will not be a problem, as they are covered by sick pay. However, not everyone has this luxury. Plus, those that are self-employed will really feel the effects. Luckily this counts as a special damage. The idea behind compensation for injuries is that you are not worse off after your accident.
