    Claiming for accident expenses in Braintree

    A guide to claiming for accident expenses in Braintree

    Are you thinking about making an accident claim? From car crashes and product liability cases, to construction accidents and injuries from a slip, trip or fall, there are many different situations whereby people can find themselves needing to make a personal injury claim.

    If you find yourself in this position, it is vital to do all you can in order to get the full amount of compensation you are entitled to. Did you know that as well as being compensation for your injuries you will also receive special damages if your claim is successful? When claiming for accident expenses in Braintree, this compensation covers any costs you have encountered because of the injury you have suffered in an accident that was not your fault.

    Examples of special damages

    Medical Costs – There is only one place to begin and this is with medical expenses. Have you had to pay for treatment for your injuries? Perhaps you have faced prescription costs? You will be able to claim for all of this.

    Accommodation Expenses – Some people need to adapt their accommodation so that it is more suitable for them during the recovery period or indefinitely.

    Loss Of Income – Have you experienced a loss of income because of your injury? Some people are fortunate enough to be covered by sick pay, however this is not the case for everyone. Moreover, those who are self-employed will suffer if they are unable to work. The good news is that you can claim for this when making an accident claim.

    Travel Expenses – There are several different types of travel costs that can occur when someone has suffered an injury. There is the expense of getting to and from the hospital and paying parking fees. Moreover, some people have to sort out alternate travel during the recovery period. Those who experience long-term injuries may even need their car altered.

    Childcare Costs – If you are a parent you may find that you need to hire a child minder or sort out childcare whilst you recover. You can also claim for this as special damages.

    These are just a few examples of the sorts of things to be considered who you are claiming for accident expenses in Braintree, and are not meant as a full list of the things that can be claimed for.
