A big concern of those involved in accidents is how they will recover money for earnings lost during recovery. Fortunately, it is possible to claim compensation for lost income. This type of compensation is known as ‘special damages’ which also takes into account any other loss of income caused by the accident. Written evidence from your doctor will allow you to make a claim to confirm the injuries suffered.
How do I Calculate Loss of Earnings?
In order to calculate the amount of income lost, an average net income is measured over the three months previous to the incident. Self-employed people will need to get in touch with their accountant who can provide you with figures to help give you accurate information on how much compensation you can claim.
It can also be possible to claim for lost overtime if this is something you regularly undertake. Evidence will need to be provided to prove this.
