A car accident is the most unfortunate incidence in someone’s life and the recoveries from a car accident personal injury claim can only mount up that loss and pain, to a level of consolation. Thanks to the UK policies of road traffic accident and injury claims, the irreparable damages that occur in road accidents are no longer creating unrecoverable stress in one’s life.
If you have suffered from a car accident on the road you can make a claim, but you must be aware that the other party will only refund you the loss amount in full, when it has been proven that you had no part to play in the unfortunate event. In order to recover your losses, both physical and monetary, you will need to make a car accident personal injury claim. In order to do this successfully, it would be a wise move to seek professional assistance and chalk out certain points and details that you will require, before you think about putting in a claim.
All insurance companies will assess the extent of the damages, identify the party that is responsible for the mishap, and then evaluate the recoverable damages and other losses. Therefore, first of all you have to prove that the driver was not following road traffic and safety rules and you will need to show that there was some negligence from the other party that directly caused the accident.
The damages recoverable by insurance companies include the following:
Medical expenses – Securely store all the medical bills for treatment, doctor visits, medicine, medical tests and therapies, any medical devices, like crutches, braces, hospital and emergency room rents, nurse or caretaker’s charge and so on, as you will need to produce them to the insurance company. All these expenses are fully recoverable. If you expect there will be more medical expenses in the future, consult with the doctor to determine the amount and then claim for that amount.
Personal Losses – Mental pain, suffering, and stress in life are the obvious outcomes of a car accident. There is no method to measure them, but the specialists calculate them according to the extent of loss, damage and physical harm from the accident.
Damaged property value – The insurance company, or the other party, will reimburse the value of the damaged property.
Lost wage or earning capacity – you will often be able to reclaim the pounds you could not earn for the period between the accident and the time of final judgment of the case. You will need to provide proof that the injuries prevented you from working during that time. You may even be able to claim for money if you can prove that you had the potential to earn during that period, for those people that may have been unemployed at the time.
The insurance companies will simply add up your entire medical bill amount and then multiply that ‘base value’ according to the severity of your loss, to compensate for the physical and mental losses suffered as a result. However, if there is any fault from your part, the amount of recovery will decrease. The other party will calculate the percentage of fault from both sides and reimburse your car accident personal injury claim accordingly.
