Whatever kind of accident you may have been in and whatever injuries you may have suffered this team can help. So what can you claim for? Well please read on to see a rough guide put together by the Knowsley accident claims team on what you can claim compensation for.
- General Damages – This is compensation for the actual injury itself. So the actual physical injury and the pain and suffering it has caused. Of course it goes without saying that more severe injuries will mean higher amounts of cash compensation.
- Special Damages – Special damages are split into two different types, incidental and consequential. Incidental damages are related to your situation following the accident. For example, they will cover medical expenses (including private medical care) and having your car fixed if the claim is related to a road traffic accident. Consequential special damages do not have to be related to the injuries you suffer. Damage to property can also be taken into account. A good example is a road traffic accident claim. While your car is being repaired you will need alternative ways to get to work. That will also be expensive and under special damages those costs can also be claimed, be they bus or train fares or the cost of car hire.
If you find yourself in the unfortunate position of being caught up in an accident that was not your own fault then please do not worry. Things may not be as bad as you think and it is best to get the facts and knowledge that you need.
