Are you claiming road traffic accident compensation in Christchurch?
If you’ve recently been hurt or injured in an accident which wasn’t your fault, you may already be thinking about claiming road traffic accident compensation in Christchurch. Unfortunately, however, not everyone is aware of their rights.
As some people simply don’t know that they could be eligible to make a claim, they miss out on the compensation they deserve for their injuries. If you’ve been involved in an accident which was caused by someone or something else and you obtained medical treatment for your injuries, it’s likely that you will be able to make a claim.
How badly were you hurt?
A common misconception about the claims industry is that you must have been very badly injured in order to be eligible to make a claim. In fact, this isn’t true at all. Although you certainly can make a claim following a serious injury, you can also obtain compensation for more minor injuries.
For example, you may be able to obtain compensation for a cut, muscle damage, a torn ligament or whiplash, as well as making a claim for broken bones, head injuries and spinal injuries.
Providing you obtained medical treatment for the injury, you should be able to obtain compensation for it.
How much compensation can you obtain?
When your compensation award is calculated, the type of injury you sustained will be taken into account. However, you may be surprised at how much compensation you could receive, even for more minor injuries.
In addition to obtaining compensation for your injuries, you could also be able to claim back any expenses you’ve incurred when you claim for road traffic accident compensation in Christchurch.
If you’ve had to pay for extra childcare whilst you recover from your injuries, for example, you could be able to claim this back when you make your compensation claim. Similarly, if you’ve lost income because you’ve been unable to work or if you’ve had to pay for any of your medical treatment, you could claim the cost of this back.
