If you’re injured in a car accident, you are entitled to claim compensation for all your losses. This includes general damages for your pain and suffering/loss of enjoyment of life. But it can also include any resulting income loss, treatment costs, out-of-pocket expenses. To determine what compensation is owed, some questions to ask would include: Have you experienced pain and suffering? Are you able to do your everyday tasks at work or at home? What would you have earned that you can’t but for your injuries? Have you incurred any out of pocket expenses?
