If you have had an accident in the last three years which was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation – also called “damages”. You may be entitled to damages for:
- Your injury or illness
- Loss of income
- Damage to your property
In addition you may be able to recover the cost of any treatment required or adaptations to your home to help get you back on your feet. Where appropriate we will seek interim payments to ensure you can begin to recover compensation as soon as possible, even before the whole claim is finished.
If there is a risk of your condition deteriorating in the future, we can explore with you the possibility of provisional damages which would enable us to seek further compensation in future if things did get worse.
We also understand that while you are recovering from injury it can be a very stressful time for all sorts of reasons. We appreciate that following an accident you may be off work and losing income, which can put a great strain on family and relationships. Our lawyers approach each case with courtesy and sensitivity to ensure that you get the support you need, that your interests are protected until you are back on your feet and you recover the compensation you are due.
