Your physical and/or psychological injuries are likely to form the main part of your claim. The amount of compensation for injuries is based on two main aspects:
- The pain and suffering you have experienced, or may permanently experience.
- How your symptoms have affected your life.
Both of these aspects combined will be assessed when valuing your injuries.
Besides your injuries, you may incur other losses. If you have incurred a loss as a result of the injuries, or the accident directly, then it is likely you can include them in your claim. Some examples may be:
- Travel expenses
- Medical expenses and treatment costs
- Lost earnings
- Care and assistance
If you have not incurred a particular loss, but you are likely to incur it in future, you may be able to claim for this as well. This might include the costs of treatment which you will need in future.
