How much compensation you could receive
The amount of compensation awarded for negligence claims in Blaby depends on lots of different things, such as the severity of your injury, how long it will take you to recover, or if there is any permanent damage. As part of your claim Accident Advice Helpline would also claim for:
- Loss of earning
- Anxiety and stress
- The cost of care if you are no longer able to take care of yourself properly
- Extra travel costs
- Childcare costs
- Home help, or any other job you would normally do
- You may need to have your home adapted to cope with any disabilities
- Any extra costs at all that have been incurred as a direct result of the accident
You need to ask for receipts for anything you have to pay out so that you have proof they have been paid. Wages slips are an ideal form of proof for your loss of earnings, but if you do not have them, your employer will be asked to confirm the reduction in your income.
