Injury solicitors in Sissinghurst
If you have a potential personal injury compensation claim which you would like to file, you would need the help of injury solicitors in Sissinghurst or ones based close to where you live. You may have a claim to make for one of two reasons:
- You have been diagnosed with an illness that you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence.
- You have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault.
Injury solicitors in Sissinghurst can tell you whether you have good grounds on which to base a claim or not.
What does compensation cover?
If you have been injured in an accident which can be proved not to have been your fault, you may be entitled to claim both general and special damages. General damages are intended to cover the pain, distress and suffering caused as well as loss of earnings (both past and future if needed). Loss of amenity is also payable under general damages and this is compensation for a loss of quality of life. For example, if you enjoyed gardening (as did Vita Sackville-West) before your injury, but can no longer do it, you could claim compensation for this.
Special damages cover actual financial losses caused by your injuries, so you can claim for medical treatment not covered by the NHS, prescription charges and taxi fares to and from hospital as long as you keep receipts. The cost of past and future care is also covered by special damages.
