    Top 5 special damages

    In order to get a better idea of special damages and what they are, we are going to take a look at five of the most common special damages people claim for with accident lawyers in North Dorset.

    Loss of income – Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who find themselves in a position where they are unable to work for a certain period of time because of the injuries they have suffered. Some people are lucky enough to be covered by sick pay. However, that is not always the case, especially for those that are self-employed. So, if you are suffering a loss of income or overtime because of your injuries you will be able to claim for this.

    Medical expenses – If you have been involved in an accident it is only right that you will probably face some medical costs. This could be anything from the cost of treatment to prescription expenses.

    Travel costs – There are many different types of travel costs you could encounter because of your injury. Simply travelling to and from the hospital and paying for a car parking ticket counts. Nonetheless, you may also find yourself in a position where you need to use alternative transportation until you recover fully.

    Childcare expenses – Some people need to use the services of a childminder whilst they recover, as they are unable to look after their children themselves during the recovery process.
