Making a personal injury claim in Aberystwyth is something that is the legal right of every innocent victim that is injured in an accident that was not their own fault. Accidents are usually unexpected and sudden and they are not fussy who they happen to. None of us are immune from being injured in an accident, or from making a personal injury claim.
The effects of accidents that cause innocent victims to make a personal injury claim in Aberystwyth
Compensation is not money that is given away for free, it is meant to help with the changes that can be caused to people lives because of the injuries they have sustained. It is split into two main groups:
- General compensation – this is the amount you are awarded for your injuries, taking into account the severity of them, your recovery prospects and how the injury has affected your life.
- Special compensation – every accident brings expenses with it. Medical costs, childcare, travel and a whole host of other things suddenly have to be paid out at a time when you could be living off a reduced income if you have had to lose time from work. If your claim is successful, these can all be recouped.
The expenses that accompany an accident, individually might not seem like much money, but added together over a period of time, it is amazing just how much they can add up to.
You do need to prove your expenses though, as you do your loss of earnings. You should make sure you get receipts for everything you have to pay out and if you have not kept your payslips to prove the reduced income, your boss will be asked to confirm it.
Proving your injuries for a personal injury claim
Personal injury claims are a legal process, and everything to do with them has to be proven, including your injuries. Initially, medical reports from whoever treated you will be required and some victims then have to have a medical with a specialist in the injuries they have.
