The different elements of your claim
When you make a personal injury compensation claim, the award is made up of different components. You are awarded general compensation for your injuries and the impact they have had on your life, and special compensation to cover overheads that have arisen because of the accident.
The special compensation is meant to cover the extra expenses most victims incur after an accident, and any loss of income if you need to lose time from work. These can be any sort of expenses, such as extra medical expenses, care costs, travelling expenses, child care, and anything else that is because of the accident.
Whatever you want to claim for though, whether it is a cost or a loss, you must be able to prove it, so make sure you keep receipts for anything you have to pay out.
