What factors influence what your claim is worth?
We help you to claim two types of compensation: general damages, and special damages. The value of your claim changes dependant on how much of each compensation type you are eligible for. For example, general damages includes compensation for:
- Pain and suffering
- Effects on your working/personal life – known as ‘loss of amenity.’
- Any disadvantage you may have if placed on the labour market as a result of your injury.
The amount of general damages you can claim is therefore based on the level of pain/suffering you experience, and loss of amenity.
Special damages includes compensation for:
- Loss of earnings
- Damage to clothing or belongings
- Vehicle repairs, car hire, storage costs
- Medical treatment
- Travel expenses
- Personal care/assistance
- Medical aids
The amount of special damages you can claim is based on how much money is spent on the factors above as a result of your injury.
