Do you need advice on hiring a lawyer in Doncaster? If you are thinking about making a personal injury claim, you will undoubtedly have a million different questions running through your mind. However, one thing we all want to know is how much compensation we are going to receive. While it is impossible to give a definitive answer without knowing the specifics of your case, we can give you a breakdown of how compensation is calculated.
Compensation is split into two parts, known as general damages and special damages. You are probably familiar with general damages. This type of compensation is designed to compensate you for your injuries and suffering. It’s calculated based on the extent of your injury, and the impact it’s going to have on your life. The doctor’s medical report will be used to determine how much you’ll receive.
Special damages are designed to compensate you for any costs you have encountered because of your injuries. This includes the likes of travel costs, treatment expenses, childcare expenses, counselling costs, prescription costs and loss of earnings. You simply need to prove that you suffered these costs as a direct result of your injuries. You will, of course, need receipts and such like to back your claim up.
