    General Damages

    These are for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries. Medical evidence is required to support these claims and your medical records must be made available to your injury lawyers in Hessle or ones representing you wherever you live in the UK. You may be required to undergo another medical examination too substantiate your claim.

    General damages also covers loss of amenity; for example if you had a hobby or played a sport before your injury but can no longer manage to do it, because of the injury, you would be compensated for this loss of quality of life.

    If you are a member of the police force and so on and cannot return to work, you could be awarded general damages for what is termed “loss of congenial employment.”

    Loss of earnings both past and future can also be compensated for.

     

    Special damages

    These cover damage to property, a vehicle for example if you were in a road traffic accident. They also cover all medical expenses related to your injury and medical equipment. If you are claiming for a fatality, then funeral expenses will be added in.

    If you need to adapt your home because of life-changing injuries compensation covers this need. It can also cover all care expenses, both past and future.
