An industrial accident claim does not only include the injuries you’ve suffered. Your life can be affected in many different ways as a result a workplace injury. This can lead to you incurring many other losses and expenses. If these losses have arisen as a direct consequence of the accident at work or your injuries you can include them in your claim.
Some of the most common losses include:
- Travel expenses
- Medical expenses and treatment costs
- Loss of earnings
- Care and assistance
- Future loss of earnings
Besides losses you have already incurred, you can include losses which you anticipate you will incur in future. These future losses, like all losses in your claim, must be supported by evidence and must follow as a direct result of your injuries.
For example, if the harm you sustained will mean you need long-term care in future, any expenses relating to this could be added in your compensation claim.
