What Is Included In A Personal Injury Claim?
Paul du Plessis Attorneys in Pretoria will quantify your personal injury claim by taking into account the full impact of your injury. There are many aspects that need to be considered that may not be obvious at the outset.
Firstly medical expenses already incurred must be taken into account, as well as future medical expenses that are anticipated as a result of your injury. You may require an operation in the future or special medical equipment, such as a tailor-made wheelchair. Your home may require modification to accommodate your impaired mobility. You are also entitled to claim for general damages, the purpose of which is to compensate for the pain and suffering you have incurred and will still endure, as a result of the injury. Loss of earnings must be included, as well as an estimation of future loss of earning potential. It is complicated to properly assess loss of income and an actuary will perform this calculation.
