Personal Injury Damages
Filing a personal injury claim without a knowledgeable barrister on your side can be a confusing and daunting task. It is important to first understand what compensation the victim may be entitled to if they choose to file a claim and then begin to construct a robust argument for your case.
Commonly, damages may be considered compensatory and non-compensatory also known as special and general damages.
Compensatory, or special damages, are out-of-pocket expenses you may have incurred or lost as a result of your injury. Compensatory damages include:
