What can you make a compensation claim for


Have you been wondering, ‘What can you make a compensation claim for?’ Maybe you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault, and you have suffered financially as well as physically as a result of your injuries. Perhaps you slipped and fell in your local supermarket, or maybe your accident happened while you were at work. Whatever the circumstances surrounding your injury, you are right to investigate the possibility of pursuing a compensation claim. After all, according to the law in the UK, innocent accident victims are entitled to seek justice.

Was someone else to blame for your accident?

This is an important point and can be misunderstood by potential claimants. You must be able to prove that your accident happened because someone else was negligent or reckless; it is not simply enough to say that it was not your fault. So if you slipped and fell because shop staff failed to clean up a slippage properly, then you could be able to pursue a claim. Similarly, if you were injured at work because your employer did not give you adequate training, then you may be able to claim.

What kind of injuries can you claim for?

Providing you sought medical attention for your injuries, then you can have them taken into account for your claim. This includes psychological and emotional distress as well as any physical injuries that you sustained. Your medical records will be vital when it comes to proving that your accident had a major impact on your health.

Can you claim for anything else?

If you incurred any additional expenses as a result of your injuries, then this will also be taken into account. So if you needed to take a taxi to your hospital appointment, or if you were forced to buy specialised medical equipment, then you should keep your receipts. In addition, if you were unable to work and lost income due to your injuries, then you can have this included in your claim.

Chat to your solicitor about any other out-of-pocket expenses that you can have taken into account, as it could make a real difference to the amount of compensation you receive.
