Considering making a compensation claim in Torquay?
If you’re considering making a compensation claim in Torquay, you or a loved one may have suffered an injury which wasn’t your fault. If you’ve never made a compensation claim before, you may have some questions about how to make a claim or exactly what the claims process entails.
What can I make a claim for?
If you sustain injuries that weren’t your fault, you can make a compensation claim. Generally the amount of compensation you receive will depend on the type and severity of your injuries. Your compensation award will also take into account the effect that your injuries have on your daily life.
In addition to this, you can even claim for costs you’ve incurred when you’re making a compensation claim. Costs such as travel to and from a hospital or GP’s surgery, medical equipment and prescriptions can all add up to a significant sum. We don’t think it’s fair that you should be out of pocket following your injuries. Providing you keep receipts for your expenses, they can all be claimed back if you make a successful compensation claim.
Many claimants find that they’re unable to work for some time following their injuries. This means that claimants are often surviving on little or no income and can even end up in debt whilst they recuperate. Even if your off work for a relatively short amount of time, this loss in income can have a significant impact. Compensation can be paid for loss of earnings and can help replace lost income thus enabling you to pay essential bills and maintain your lifestyle without getting into debt.
Whilst you’re recovering you may find that you require extra help. Although childcare and help around the house can be costly, it is often necessary whilst you are in recovery. Rather than struggling to fund this yourself, compensation can help pay for this.
Although compensation can’t reverse your injuries, it can help ease the financial burden whilst you recover. Some claimants even use their compensation to access extra medical care and speed up their recoveries.
