Should you claim?
Deciding whether or not to claim compensation isn’t always an easy decision; there are many reasons why accident victims are reluctant to claim – not wanting to face their employer in court, not wanting to sue a small business, or simply not wanting to cause a fuss.
Most personal injury claims are settled out of court, and it is insurance companies that pay compensation claims so you have nothing to worry about. The fact is, that you were injured because of someone else’s mistake, so you have every right to seek compensation.
The injury lawyer assigned to your case will do everything that they can to keep the claim process as smooth and simple as possible.
The amount of money that you get will of course depend on how serous your injury was, and how much it affected your life and your bank balance! Your lawyer will work hard to see that you are reimbursed for any accident related costs. You can claim back money spent on things like:
- Private medical treatment, therapy or care
- Medical costs, such as medical aids and prescription charges
- Travel expenses
- Childcare fees
- The cost of replacing anything that was damaged in your accident
- Vehicle repair costs, or vehicle hire
Your lawyer will advise you on what you should claim for when you come to claim.
You can get an estimate of how much your claim is worth by using the compensation calculator on our website.
The money that you get will not be subject to tax.
