When you’re in an accident, you know that there are certain things that you can get compensation for. But there are other things that you may not know that you can be compensated for. Below are some of the common things that you may receive compensation for after an accident.
An injury lawyer in Taynuilt might be able to get you compensation for income loss
When there is a figure that’s put on the compensation for an amount of income, your past income isn’t just the only type that will be considered. Any kind of future earnings that you might have received if the accident had happened will also be considered in your total compensation that you are owed.
An injury lawyer in Taynuilt might be able to get you compensation for medical costs
This is very similar to the income amount that you are likely to get after an accident. The compensation that will be calculated for your medical treatments is going to include any treatment that’s already been done and treatment that will need to be done in the days and weeks to come.

When it comes to this, this normally will translate into anything that you are feeling right now, rather than the ongoing treatment for medical problems. In other words, it’s what you are feeling right now, rather than what’s likely to happen years down the road.
An injury lawyer in Taynuilt might be able to get you compensation for loss of property
When you’re in an accident, usually you will have some kind of property damage. This is often your car, but it can also be other things, especially if property in the car was damaged. If you are injured due to falling, this could be damaged clothing from the fall or because the hospital has to cut off clothing to treat you.
An injury lawyer in Taynuilt might be able to get you compensation for emotional problems
Sometimes, depending on the type of injuries that the person has and the amount of trauma that they have suffered, they will be entitled to compensation for emotional distress. If they are suffering from insomnia, anxiety, fear or other kinds of emotional problems because of the accident, they may be entitled to this.
If you are unable to do certain things because of your injuries, you may be able to claim for enjoyment loss. These kinds of things might be a favourite hobby, a sport that you enjoyed playing or other things that you can’t do because of your injuries.
Sometimes damages are awarded because of the accident affecting the relationship a person has with their spouse or children. For example, if the person is unable to continue intimate relations with their spouse, this may be something that they can claim for.
