The injury element of a claim is usually the main part of it, but alongside this, you can claim for many other losses and expenses that you have incurred as a result of your injuries.
Although there are many different kinds of additional loss, some common examples are:
- Loss of earnings
- Medical expenses and treatment costs
- Travel expenses
- Care and assistance
You may also be able to claim for losses which you have not incurred at present but are anticipated to happen in future because of your injuries. For example, if the consequences of your injury mean you will have to retire early, this could support a claim for future loss of earnings.
