    Whiplash compensation claim in Hook


    What special damages can you claim for a whiplash compensation claim in Hook?

    Whiplash injuries are extremely common. While they usually arise as a result of a road traffic accident, they can also occur because of slips, trips, and workplace incidents as well. No matter how you have sustained this injury, one thing is for sure – if it was not your fault, you will be entitled to compensation.

    If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Hook, you will of course be compensated for your pain and the impact the injury is going to have on your everyday life. However, you will also receive special damages, too. These are essentially out-of-pocket expenses – any money you have lost as a result of being injured. So, when you visit the hospital and you have to pay money to park in the car park, this counts towards special damages.

    Here are some further examples of special damages relating to those making a whiplash compensation claim in Hook:

    • Medical expenses;
    • Prescription costs;
    • Transport expenses;
    • Loss of earnings;
    • Childcare costs; and
    • Expenses for alternative accommodation.

     

    The best way to determine whether something counts as a special expense is to ask yourself whether you would have encountered the expense if you had not suffered the whiplash injury in Hook. If not, then you can claim for it.

    Nevertheless, it is imperative to ensure you have proof of every expense. You are not going to be able to claim just because you say you had to sort out alternative transport, or that your prescriptions cost a said amount. It is consequently vital to keep a hold of relevant receipts, and such like.

    If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Hook, the best thing to do is get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline today. We will answer all of your questions and put you in touch with one of our specialist no win, no fee solicitors, who will handle your case for you and ensure you get the full amount of money you deserve.
