You have been in an accident and there were injuries. What now? What can you claim for? Below are some of the things that you can and should claim for when you have been in a car accident and someone else had been at fault.
Claim for damage in car accident injury claims
The first thing that you can claim for when you have been injured in an accident is the damage to your car. This is the thing that most people think about when they are making a claim. The amount that you can claim will be based on the amount of money that it will take to put your car the way it was before the accident happened. If your car’s written off, the amount is going to depend on the cars worth and other factors related to the damage.
Claim for injuries in car accident injury claims
The second thing you can claim for when you have been injured in an accident is the injuries that you have sustained. You can claim for the things that you have had to pay for such as prescriptions or medical bills. Ensure that you keep all of your receipts of the things that you have to pay for.
Claim for property damage in car accident injuries claims
The third thing you can claim for when you have been injured in an accident is the damage to the property that you have, such as anything that was in the car or the clothing that had to be cut off of you because of your injuries. This is going to depend on a case-by-case basis, of course, but if you have damaged items, that can be also part of your lawsuit against the person who hit you.
