It is important to point out that every claim for injury is different and therefore the compensation awarded to you may be more than what is listed below.
The level of damages will depend upon a number of factors such as the level off anticipated recovery, any permanent symptoms and whether there is any scarring and to what extent. If the client will have to undergo numerous operations with rehabilitation this will increase the level of damages awarded.
The experienced, friendly legal teams at the Specter Partnership are able to offer a FREE initial assessment of your claim.
General DamagesGeneral Damages are the monetary compensation awarded for the injury and suffering which you sustained as a result of a non-fault accident. Your injuries will be confirmed and reported on by a Medical Expert, the settlement figure will be negotiated and only accepted when you are in agreement with the figure offered by the third party representatives.
Special DamagesSpecial Damages are the recovery of funds you have paid out, or have lost because of the accident you were involved in. This can include; loss of earnings and future loss of earnings, the cost of; medical treatment, hospital travel among others, we do ask that you keep receipts in support of any loss incurred.
The client has a duty to mitigate their losses this means that you must keep your losses to a minimum. Should you have to spend money because of the accident you were involved in, please retain your receipts as we can then include these within the recovery of your special damages.
