One of the ideas behind compensation in accident claims is to put the person in the position they were immediately before the accident.
So, if as a result of an accident you are out of work, then, you should receive as part of your compensation from the courts, your lost wages.
Agreed ? …… Yes ?
So, if you win your case, you expect that the others should pay all your costs ? …. Yes ! you would expect that, but it ain’t the case.
Generally, you will only get about €300 for a medical report from the court, yet we know of doctors charging up to €600 for injury reports on patients. And, we need these reports for cases.
So, who pays ?…… the victim of the negligence ! It comes out of their compensation award ?
