Getting in touch with a Fylde law firm is not an experience to be ashamed about. If you have been in an accident that was by no means your fault then you are entitled to get in touch with legal representation. Whether your accident happened on the road, in the town or at work you could be on your way to obtaining some compensation.
What is compensation?
Compensation is the term used for the money you receive from the guilty party when you have had an accident. Receiving money is the end result of putting forward a claim accusing the other party of causing the accident. Any Fylde law firm will confirm that compensation itself can vary extensively as to how much you can claim.
The money you receive effectively includes many different costs that are incurred as a result of the accident.
What costs can a Fylde law firm claim back?
There are a large amount of costs that can be claimed back in conjunction with a compensation claim. Here are some examples of costs that could be covered by your compensation:
- Tickets – Car parking tickets can be claimed on if they were obtained by attending appointments as a direct result of the accident. The actual ticket itself and any receipt must be kept and given to your legal representative. Other tickets for appointment purposes such as bus tickets could also be claimed for.
- Medical costs – If you’ve had to pay for any medical treatment or prescriptions, you could claim these back with help from a Fylde law firm.
- Childcare costs – If you need assistance with childcare whilst you’re recovering, this is a cost you could claim back when you make a compensation claim.
- Adaptations to your home – If you’ve suffered serious injuries, you may need to make changes to your home. If you’re struggling to use the stairs, for example, you may be in need of a stairlift. However, you shouldn’t suffer the cost alone. When you take legal action, it’s important to include the cost of any adaptations to your home in your claim.
