Well please read on to see a rough guide put together by the injury lawyer in Bidford On Avon team on what you can claim compensation for.
- General Damages – This is compensation for the actual injury itself.
- Special Damages – Special damages are split into two different types, incidental and consequential, though it is more than likely that both will be included in your claim. Incidental damages are related to your situation following the accident. For example, they will cover medical expenses (including private) and having the car fixed if the claim is for personal injury 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 were partly responsible for the accident the expenses you will be able to claim as special damages may be significantly reduced. If you find yourself in this unfortunate position don’t worry it may not be as bad as you think and it is best to seek expert legal advice from a qualified injury lawyer from a reputable law firm, such as an injury lawyer from the injury lawyer in Bidford On Avon team at Accident Advice Helpline.
