Early medical assessment, rehabilitation and care support are key to helping the injured person cope with the consequences of the accident. Compensation is often available through an interim payment from the other side's insurers.
Damages in these cases are often very high, so it is essential that you have specialist lawyers dealing with your case to ensure that the insurers do not try to minimise your entitlement to damages. Complex calculations as to loss of earning capacity, future loss and care expenses also need to be prepared to ensure a proper amount of compensation is awarded.
If you are unfortunate enough to have suffered a brain or spinal injury, it may be necessary to adapt your home, and this is usually very expensive. It will also be necessary to look at the question of healthcare costs, personal care, rehabilitation, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and aids and equipment. All these will be recoverable as part of your damages.
