Financial Loss Claims
When making a personal injury claim, it is easy to concentrate on the physical injuries you have suffered. But what about if you sustained financial loss as a result of an accident? You are entitled to seek the replacement cost of any damaged items.
The Long of it
Financial loss claims
When you make a personal injury claim, it is easy to assume that you can only claim for the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of your injuries. However, you are also entitled to claim for other financial losses, like property damage.
It is frustrating and inconvenient when you are without your property, and it is only right that you seek the replacement cost of this. Examples of financial loss and property that you can claim for include
- replacement clothing
- mobile phone
- broken glasses
- replacement helmet
- leathers for motorcyclists
- broken laptops
- new bike where bicycle cannot be repaired
It is important that you keep these damaged items after your accident, and where possible take photos of them, too. If you have the purchase receipt for these items, then that would help when building and proving your case, however it is not necessary to have them.
