Clinical and Medical FAQ's

 

What can I claim for?

You can claim compensation for the injury itself and any psychiatric injury that you suffer. You can also claim compensation for any financial losses you incur.

Financial losses include loss of earnings, travel and parking costs, cost of care received from family and friends, prescription and medication costs, and the cost of private healthcare. It is important to retain any receipts.

How much compensation will I receive?

The amount of compensation that you will receive will depend upon the seriousness of your injury and the financial losses that you have suffered.

We will always ensure that you receive the best compensation possible.

 

How long will my claim take?

The length of a claim depends upon type of injury involved and whether the other party admits it was to blame.

We will ensure that your claim is dealt with as quickly as possible and will keep you updated and involved throughout the entirety of your claim.
