Compensation for financial loss
If you have been unlucky enough to have been involved in an accident, been let down by a healthcare professional or developed a disease due to your working environment then you may be entitled to bring a compensation claim; provided that the injury or illness was caused by the fault of another person or organisation.
Lime specialises in Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence and Industrial Disease compensation claims. Our Lawyers work closely with you to collate and present the evidence in your legal claim to the responsible person or organisation (and their insurance company), our lawyers will then seek to prove that you are entitled to compensation and will fight for you to attain the best level of compensation in the shortest possible timeframe. Compensation is intended to help the injured individual and their family move on to the next phase following the harm caused by another.
Aside for compensation for the bodily injury or illness, damages can be sought for a wide range of financial losses or financial needs such as:
- equipment aids (wheelchairs, stair-lifts etc.)
- dependency claims
- funeral expenses
- lost employment, business losses or self-employed earnings. (Lost income can include future earnings should the accident prevent your longer-term earning potential. It can also include promotional opportunities and pensions.)
- home adaptations
- medical care
- nursing care
- prescription fees
- policy excess
- rehabilitation costs
- replacement property
- travel expenses
- vehicle repairs or adaptations
It should be noted be that the losses outlined above are referred to as Special Damages and are intended to compensate you for any expenses incurred as a result of the accident. The list is by no way exhaustive and claims presented will be assessed on a case-by-case basis to ensure that they are reasonable.
