What Can You Claim After an Accident?

An Accident can be a very daunting and unpleasant experience for you, and you may be unsure of what you can claim for after the accident.

What you can claim for, or the amount of your settlement, will largely depend on your individual injuries and losses, such as damage to your vehicle, personal injury and any financial loss.

Call us now on 028 71 229 343 or Make An Online Enquiry to arrange a free consultation. We are Expert Accident Solicitors and will take all these factors into consideration when assessing your claim and will give you clear guidance from the start.

The amount of compensation you will get depends on the extent of pain and suffering you have endured, and the amount of money you have lost (and will lose in the future). This means compensation settlements vary from case to case.

To help you understand how much compensation you might get, it is useful to know that personal injury compensation is made up of two elements – general damages and special damages:-

General Damages

General damages are there to compensate you for the physical and/or psychological pain and suffering you have experienced.

You might be wondering – how do you put a price on your pain and suffering? Of course, it is not an easy thing to quantify.

Your general damages should reflect the extent of the pain and suffering you have endured. So, the more serious the injury, the greater your general damages will be. For example, if you suffer a minor eye injury, you can expect to be awarded up to £15,000. But if you are left totally blind, you could be awarded between £225,000 and £400,000.

We will assess the injuries you have experienced, and will continue to experience, before we begin negotiations for the maximum compensation for your case.

Special Damages

Special damages are there to compensate you for the financial losses you have incurred as a direct result of your injuries. This is intended to put you back in the financial position you would have been in, were it not for the accident and/or your injuries.

You can claim for both past and future financial losses, such as –

  • Your past and future loss of earnings
  • Your loss of pension
  • The cost of medical care, medication and equipment
  • The cost of repairing, replacing or adapting your property/possessions

We can set out all the financial losses you have incurred, using any receipts and records you have kept as evidence. We can then calculate how much compensation you should receive, both for your past losses, and your anticipated future losses.

How Can We Help?

We can help with any issues that you have following a Road Traffic Accident, such as, obtaining compensation for your injuries, ensuring that the damage to your car is repaired, dealing with Insurance Companies and obtaining a hire car.

You can also claim if you were a passenger involved in a collision through no fault of your own. This includes passengers who are injured while travelling in a car, van, bus, taxi, motorcycle, or indeed any other form of transport.
