When making a claim for Personal Injury there are two heads of damages, General Damages and Special Damages.
General Damages are damages that are assessed to compensate you for the pain suffering and loss of amenity following the accident that you have had. In a nutshell the worse that you have suffered the more compensation you are entitled to.
Once ADF Law has accepted your claim, and at the optimum time during your claim, we shall instruct an independent medical expert to assess the seriousness of your injuries. From this medical examination and subsequent report we will be in a position to advise you on the likely level of damages or, if further treatment is required, instruct private medical treatment on your behalf.
You will note have to pay for any private medical treatment upfront as we will recover the cost of this treatment from the paying insurance company.
