Financial Losses

We will also put together a list of the financial losses you have suffered and make a claim for these. This is known as a claim for special damages. You will be able to claim for these as well as the compensation for your injuries themselves.

The largest element of special damages is usually loss of earnings and potentially loss of future earnings. Other expenses could include travel costs to medical appointments, replacement of damaged items such as glasses or clothing, the purchase of items you need to cope with your injuries such as supports or equipment and the cost of prescriptions.

If your home needs to be adapted in any way, the costs of this can be claimed as well as the cost of additional care or therapy that you may need and any help with domestic tasks that you can no longer manage.

You are also entitled to claim for losses related to activities that you have paid for but been unable to undertake.  Such things as a holiday you have booked or gym membership that you cannot use. We will go through your claim with you in detail.  Ensuring that you are properly compensated for all of your accident-related losses.
