Injuries and illnesses cause serious stress and pain; both physically and mentally. The mental trauma and frustration become even worse if this pain and suffering happen due to someone else’s negligence. Thankfully, the law of the UK allows every citizen the right to seek compensation from the responsible party. So, if you’ve sustained a personal injury, you may have the right to claim for pain and suffering, along with loss of earnings or the losses of income you will experience in future. Moreover, the victim can also claim for any expense they incur as a consequence of the injury; this includes conveyance expenses, the help and care provided by closed ones, any additional equipment required to be purchased in those circumstances, damaged products, and any other good bought pertaining to the injury and accident.
What is Pain and Suffering From Personal Injury?
Any person who has suffered from accidents has the right to make claim for reimbursement. These claims can be made for bodily accidents which include minor problems like scarring, bruises, or minor lacerations along with major troubles like disfigurement or even broken bones. The amount of compensation you get will depend on the severity of your injuries.
At Wallace Legal, our expert personal injury lawyer will go through your medical report to assess the seriousness of your injuries. These are the 3 broad elements considered in assessing the extent of compensation:
- The severity of the harm
- The effects this harm has caused; long term pain or everlasting incapacity
- The extent to which the injury has had an effect to your average life.
Loss Of Earnings and Claims
Injuries will most definitely take you off from work and ultimately hurt your earnings. Long breaks from work will result in loss of earnings because in all honesty, no orgnisation will be generous enough to pay you in full for a long time if you’re not working. Thankfully, all these losses can be redeemed. The compensation money you get will be of the take-home income, and not the gross salary. Furthermore, you will also not have to pay any taxes at the award of your damages.
In most cases, the claim for loss of profits you make depends at the average take-home income during the 3 month length before the incident. Matters of the law are usually very complicated and not every ordinary individual can have a strong grip over these issues, which is why you can get in touch with Wallace Legal, and make sure that you get your deserved compensation with no issues. Our personal injury solicitors in Aberdeen are highly professional, experienced, and aware of every subtle detail regarding legal matters. We can get the time table of earnings from your manager, which will be of great help only if you save the payslips before the accident and also for the time of absence. This could permit us to check them towards the data your employer gives us.
Other Expenditures You Can Get in Compensation
- Damages To Assets and Things
All private assets and things like mobile phones, helmets, dentures, clothes, gadgets, and other similar things can also be claimed if they are damaged. Ideally, you have to hold the damaged items due to the fact the coverage company will investigate them. Also, you need to ensure you have all the receipts for broken and damaged items
- Travel Expenses
You could also claim for all of the costs and expenses you have incurred post-accident. This includes the taxi fares and prescription fees. If you’re going to make a road accident claim, there’s a high chance that your own vehicle has suffered damages, for which you’ll need another vehicle for your work and treatment. This expense can also be claimed. That being said, it is better that you inform us before you hire a replacement car. Like all other personal injury cases, make sure you keep all the receipts safe to ensure your claim is successful.
