The Effects of a Personal Injury
You may think that you have not been badly affected by your accident or personal injury and that is why you may think that claiming compensation is not a good idea. However, if you look at it in more depth, you’ll see that it isn’t always that clear:
Have you experienced pain or suffering? Most certainly your injury may have hurt when it happened and it may feel much better now. But what about the future? Who knows what might happen? This could just be a temporary thing and you could end up suffering from pain and discomfort for life.
Have you experienced any loss of your earnings? If so, you’ve lost earnings and this is something that you can claim for.
Has your ability to earn as much money as before the injury been affected? If your inquiry has affected your ability to earn what you did before, you could include a claim for future loss of earnings. This could be a significant amount of money once you sit down and work it out.
Have you had to pay medical bills? If you’ve paid for any of your medical treatment such as physiotherapy or counselling? You may have had to pay for travel to go for appointments. These things can be claimed for as part of your compensation claim.
Has your quality of life been negatively impacted? Can you do the things you used to do? Get about the same? Play the sports and do the activities that you used to do? If your accident has hindered any of these in any way then we can include it in your claim for compensation.
Grays Personal Injury Claims Time Limits
Due to the Limitation Act 1980, the usual time limit for beginning a personal injury claim is three years from when your accident occurred. If the injuries caused by your accident could not be diagnosed straight away, then the three year limit will usually start from the date of your diagnosis. This is known to some as the ‘date of knowledge’.
Exceptions can apply to how the time limit for claiming works, depending on the circumstances of a potential claimant. For example, if a child has experienced an injury due to negligence, then the time limit for starting a claim won’t start for that child until the day they become 18 years old.
Once an injured child is 18, they will be considered old enough to start their own personal injury claim. A personal injury claim can’t be started by a child before they reach the age of 18. However, a representative, officially referred to as a litigation friend, may potentially be able to begin a claim for a child who has been harmed by negligence. The litigation friend can be someone close to the child, like a parent or guardian.
A different way the time limit for claiming may be affected is when the injured party lacks the required mental capacity to claim on their own behalf. The time limit for claiming is suspended for the injured party in this circumstance. The time limit may only become active later if the victim regains enough mental capacity to start making their own decisions. A litigation friend may be able to start a claim for another party which currently lacks the mental capacity to act on their own.
What Could You Receive From A Grays Personal Injury Claim?
If you match all the requirements to start a personal injury claim, then you may have questions about what you could gain from such actions. There are two main types of damages which you could receive compensation for if your claim proves to be a success:
- General damages – Compensation for general damages is designed to cover you specifically for the injuries you suffered due to the negligent behaviour which your claim focuses on. How much you could receive for general damages can vary substantially. What type of injuries you’re claiming for and how severe they are play a large part in deciding the final amount you’ll receive for general damages.
- Special damages – If you are capable of claiming for general damages through a personal injury claim, then you may be able to claim additional compensation for special damages. Compensation for special damages covers for financial losses which can be directly connected to the negligence and injuries your case centres on.
