3 Types of Damages

In the majority of cases the type of damages that you can claim will be under 3 different categories:

  1. Lost income: if you have suffered injuries that left you unable to work, then you can claim compensation for any money that you would have earned.
  2. Pain: proof must be shown that you were in pain from the accident. This is typically done by getting a signed document from your doctor.
  3. Medical expenses: it’s important to keep all your documents for medical expenses organized.
