What Expenses Can I Claim For Following A Car Accident?
Being involved in a car accident can be a traumatic experience. Whether you're the driver, a passenger or a pedestrian, the shock, injury and distress caused by even a seemingly mild car accident can be debilitating in both the short and longer term. Injuries could range from minor cuts and bruises or whiplash, to, at the more serious end of the spectrum, limbs being seriously damaged or lost altogether. If you've been involved in a car crash which wasn't your fault, then you may well be in a position to make a compensation claim.
Although no amount of money can ever make up for the distress caused by an accident, a successful car accident claim will provide compensation which enables you to take the first steps towards getting your life back exactly the way it was before misfortune struck. Besides providing comfort, and a sense that justice has been done, an accident claim will enable you to claim expenses for things that you've had to pay for, things which are a direct result of the accident itself.
Amongst the expenses you can claim for following a car accident are:
- Medical expenses
- Prescription costs
- Travel expenses
- Loss of earnings caused by your injuries
That's why, if you've been involved in a car accident which wasn't your fault, it's vital that you firstly make a record of every detail of the accident itself, and secondly keep track of everything you have to spend following the accident in the form of receipts, invoices etc. You've already been injured through no fault of your own, so why should your bank account take a hit as well?
