There are many ways in which other losses can arise due to your injuries. Often these other losses can be included in your personal injury claim.
With all additional losses, it is important to document them as much as you can so that the loss, and the amount you are claiming for, can be proved.
The list below contains some of the most common kinds of additional loss which, depending on your circumstances, can be included in a claim:
- Travel expenses – to attend your GP or hospital, for example
- Medical expenses and treatment costs – such as painkillers or physiotherapy sessions.
- Care and assistance – if your injuries required a friend or relative to provide significant help in your daily life.
- Loss of earnings – if you took time off work and did not receive full pay, or you lost bonuses due to your absence.
- Future losses – if your injuries have shortened your working life, or you have been forced to take a different job because of your injury, which pays less money.
This list doesn’t cover everything you could possibly claim. If you have suffered other losses not mentioned above, then make sure you discuss these with us so we can advise you accordingly.
