    Whiplash Injury in Knebworth Park


    A Guide to the Two Types of Compensation for a Whiplash Injury in Knebworth Park

    If you are reading this post, you have probably experienced a whiplash injury in Knebworth Park and are considering your options moving forwards. For someone that has never made a personal injury claim before it can be very much like taking a step into the unknown. In this post we aim to clear up one area of ambiguity – what you are actually compensated for when claiming. A lot of people are unaware of the fact that compensation is split into two parts – general damages and special damages. So, read on to discover a little bit more about what each one is…

    General Damages

    To begin with we have general damages. This essentially relates to the compensation you are going to get for the whiplash injury in Knebworth Park itself. How much pain have you been in? How long will it take for you to recover? How is the injury going to impact your life? These are the factors that will be considered. Obviously, the more serious and long-term your injury is, the more compensation you will receive.

    Special Damages

    The second part of your compensation will be special damages. These are essentially out of pocket expenses. They relate to any costs that you have encountered as a result of the whiplash injury in Knebworth Park. Have you had to pay for parking at the hospital? Have you had to hire someone to look after your kids? Have you lost income because of your inability to work? You will be able to claim for any costs that you have encountered as a result of the injury. However, it is important to make sure you keep proof. So, don’t chuck away your receipts!
