If you have had a road accident that was not your fault, you should be able to make road accident claims in Essex against the person who did cause your injuries. However, simply claiming compensation may not be quite enough to cover the expenses that your accident has incurred, so you should think about adding any costs to your compensation claim, so that this money can be added to the compensation that is owed to you. Here are some of the costs that you may be able to claim for.
Although you should be able to get much of the treatment that you need on the NHS, for more serious injuries or complex problems, you might want to see a specialist in order to get treatment which will help you to heal more easily. Compensation can cover specialist medical appointments, private medical care and even things like counselling to help you to get back to normal.
If you are unable to move around easily then there might be lots of extra day-to-day expenses such as childcare, taxis to hospital appointments and even the cost of getting your groceries home delivered if you are unable to make it to the supermarket. As long as you keep receipts for everything then you should be able to cover these costs with your compensation claim.
Loss of earnings
Ask your employer to fill out a list of the days of work that you have missed and how much you would have earned on those days, so that you can claim compensation back for every day of work that you were not getting paid for because of your injuries.
