Can I claim for anything else other than my injury or illness ?
Normally you can claim for anything you have lost because of the accident or illness.
For example, damaged clothing, damaged property, medical expenses, lost wages, travel expenses, or special equipment that you need, because of your injury.
You may also be able to claim for money someone else has lost because they have had to look after you due to your injury/illness.
To help your solicitor you should try and keep receipts for your losses and also write down in a diary what you have had to pay for and how much it has cost, for example if you have had to pay for medicines or trips to the doctor or hospital.
