What exactly is accident compensation?
Although accidents happen almost every day, and some of them are precisely that, just unfortunate accidents, there are times when this is not the case. When an accident has occurred as a result of the negligence of someone else, and you have received a personal injury as a result, then you may find that you feel you should receive some form of recognition of the pain and suffering you have endured. This is what accident compensation in North Somerset is for.
The compensation in North Somerset you may be awarded as a result of a personal injury is designed to offer financial recompense for the injuries, and any associated financial losses you may have incurred as a result of your accident. This is specifically because the accident was not your fault.
Types of compensation
In general personal injury claims the compensation you could be awarded falls in to two distinct categories.
Firstly, there is general damages which covers the pain and suffering you have been exposed to as a result of your specific injuries. These are usually pre-determined depending on where you have been injured, the nature of the injury received, and the recovery times associated with the injury.

You can also receive special damages. These are designed to ensure that you are not left financially worse off as a result of your accident. As a result, if you have had to take unpaid time off from work to recover from your injury, or have had to attend medical appointments, these lost wages or income can be recovered. You can also claim for any travel expenses, medical prescriptions, or medical treatments you have had to undergo. All you need to do is provide your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor with the associated receipts, and they will do the rest for you.
