What Financial Losses can you Claim Back?

It’s not only ‘pain and suffering’ that you are compensated for with personal injury claims, but also a variety of expenses and costs.

In order to ensure that you receive the maximum pay-out, you should provide your solicitor with a list of all costs that you have incurred as a result of the injury, including any of the following:

  • Cost of travel to and from medical treatment appointments – whether it’s daily bus fares, petrol etc.

  • Parking charges at the hospital or GP

  • Unused memberships (gyms or exercise classes) which you cannot use due to the injury but are still required to pay for

  • Time spent by loved ones caring for you – from the food shopping to helping you get dressed

  • Any required mobility aids or home modifications

If you have experienced any of the costs or inconveniences above, make a list for your solicitor. You will need to be able to provide evidence to prove all your expenses, so always be sure to keep any receipts or records to help with this.

At Accident Line Direct, our No Win No Fee personal injury lawyers can help with gathering evidence.

Personal Injury Claims - Tips and Advice

As mentioned, keeping evidence of any costs and expenses following the injury is essential for getting additional compensation, but you should also gather evidence at the time of the injury.

If you have fallen in work – take photos of the surroundings or anything that may have contributed to your fall, even your injuries. If you have been hit by a car – take pictures of the scene and damage to your vehicle. As long as circumstances allow, take as many photographs and gather as much evidence as you can.

Following the injury, you must be medically assessed in order to receive a copy of your medical report, which can confirm your injuries to be genuine.

Without a professional medical report, you may struggle to win a claim as it can be difficult to know whether you are actually injured or not.
