A compensation claim is there to reimburse you for any expenses that you have had to pay out on as a result of a Thanet trip accident, as well as for your injury, and working with a good injury lawyer should provide you with the help and support you need to put together a strong claim, as well as to work out exactly what you are entitled to. When it comes to making claims, a lot of people don’t realise that they can add costs relating to their mental and emotional health as well as physical injuries. If you want to add this to your compensation claim, here are some of the things you should think about.
Speak to your doctor about it
Although it is unlikely that your doctor will specialise in mental health issues, they will know how to pass you over to someone who can assess you and provide you with a full mental health assessment. This can be added to your physical health assessment when you are making your claim for compensation. Your doctor can also prescribe certain medications which can help you, and refer you for counselling.
Make a note of how these issues affect you
Mental health is just as serious as physical health and can stop you from working and being able to go about your day-to-day life. If you feel that this is the case, make a note of the various ways in which your mental health is affecting you, following your accident, in the same way that you will your physical health. This will also work as evidence in your claim.
Making a Thanet trip accident claim
Should you believe that you do have a good case for a Thanet trip accident claim then you should be prepared to follow up on this with an experienced injury lawyer, who will be able to work with you and on your behalf to process your claim and get you the compensation that you deserve. To find a good quality injury lawyer, one of the things that you can do is to look online, on comparison websites and forums, to find out what other people’s experiences have been with certain law firms.
