What expenses can you include in a personal injury or medical negligence claim?

Keeping track of your costs and lost time is important, it is also important
to assess the impact your injury or illness has had on you and your family’s
life.

So we highly recommend you keep a diary to record the following:

  • Physical or emotional changes, issues or pain
  • Vehicle repairs, towing & car hire costs, insurance excess fees
  • Medical appointments, including mileage travelled and car parking fees
  • Private medical treatment or therapy appointments and costs
  • Lost earnings from days you physically couldn’t work or had to take
    time off to attend appointments
  • Prescription charges or costs for over the counter medications
  • Insurance excess fees or car hire charges (road accident claims only)
  • Repair or replacement charges for anything damaged in the accident
  • Number of hours your family or carer provided you with physical care (bathing, dressing, preparing meals)
  • Number of hours your family or carer provided you with domestic
    assistance (housework, shopping, childcare)
  • Cancelled holidays or trips
  • Special dietary costs
  • Any alterations to your transportation to accommodate for your injuries
  • Any alterations to your home to accommodate for your injuries

Where possible keep receipts or any other documentation such as photographs to prove the items you’ve listed and periodically send your Solicitor a copy of this proof.

We offer our clients a free pocket size diary to log, not only expenses, but also symptoms, medical appointments and outcomes.
