Recovering from an accident can be an expensive time. Paying for medicines, travelling to doctors' appointments, sourcing specialist equipment, paying for private medical treatment and replacing damaged property can all add up. If the incident occurred as a result of another party's negligence, Thompsons could help you claim compensation for all expenses and losses you have incurred as a result of your injuries.
The reality of any period after an accident is that you will probably need to spend money to help you successfully manage your life following an accident. This may include costs for:
- home modifications
- mobility aids
- prosthetic limbs
- taxis (if you can't drive)
- paying for a cleaner or carer (if you need day-to-day assistance)
Whatever the case, the costs you have incurred for such items can be recovered by Thompsons – a process that is made easier if you keep receipts to document all your expenses.
We can even claim for the future expenses you might incur on these items.
Future Medical Risks
In many cases the extent and long-term impact of your injuries can be determined quite readily but there may be a risk that you suffer a serious deterioration in the future. This is why we can choose to settle on a sum for your known injuries but also reserve the possibility that you might claim again at a later date in the event of any serious deterioration in your accident-related condition.
For example, if you have sustained a head injury in a road traffic accident, initially the symptoms may present as mild concussion, however, there is a risk that you might develop epilepsy as a result of your injury at a later date – in such a situation we can settle the case for your head injuries yet reserve the right to return to court in the event of any further symptoms becoming apparent in the future.
Helping You Achieve the Best Possible Settlement
In many cases Thompsons solicitors will be able to help you obtain a settlement without going to court. However, in cases where recourse to the courts is necessary, we are prepared to litigate robustly on your behalf.
If we are able to obtain you a settlement without going to court, no matter how long it takes us to conclude your claim you will obtain maximum compensation.
