Your injuries are not the only thing you can claim compensation for. Your life can be affected in many different ways as a result of the harm you have suffered. This can lead to you incurring a variety of other losses and expenses. If these losses have arisen as a direct consequence of the harm, you can include them in your claim.
Some of the most common losses include:
- Medical expenses and treatment costs
- Loss of earnings
- Care and assistance
- Travel expenses
Losses which are anticipated to occur in future can also be included in a compensation claim. These future losses, like all losses, must be supported by evidence and must have been incurred as a result of your injuries. For example, if the harm you sustained will mean you require long-term care, expenses relating to this could be added in your compensation claim.
