Unsurprisingly, many people involved in a road traffic accident need immediate medical attention. But after a car accident, therapy and ongoing rehabilitation are often also a necessary part of the healing process.
While it's hard to give a definitive answer, it is certainly a possibility. Generally, the costs you can be compensated for include:
- Medical expenses, including fees for doctors and specialists, hospitalisation costs, and medicines
- Ongoing medical assessment, treatment and rehabilitation
- Travel costs for attending medical or therapy appointments
- Lost earnings like wages or self-employment income
- An additional amount for pain and suffering, called 'general damages', which is set by law
Personal injury cases are sometimes complex and specialist advice can really help in determining what you're entitled to. Talk with an experienced car accident lawyer for more information.
The common forms of therapy utilised when a person is injured in a car accident include physical therapy, occupational therapy, and psychological treatment.
I would highly recommend Smith’s Lawyers. The work they put into my case was exceptional, even with such a busy working life and at most times being unreachable. They went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome. I am very pleased with their work and the result.
"I highly recommend Smith’s Lawyers! They are very easy to deal with, all staff from the reception ladies through to the lawyers are friendly and action emails and phone messages promptly. I couldn’t have asked more from any of the team. I’ll certainly use Smith’s again in the future if I need to"
"Greg, Luke and the team at Smiths Lawyers were absolutely amazing in the handling of my cases from day one they were so proactive right through to finalisation of my claim. It’s true what they say no win no fee ( A broad statement) we won my claim and the cost associated with the claim was as such after deductions."
"People cringe at the thought of dealing with lawyers but my experience so far has been an absolute pleasure."
