Injuries take different forms – the victim may have been in a traffic accident or sustained an occupational injury or an injury while receiving in-patient treatment. A common feature of these cases is that they can offer many and somewhat difficult legal and actual issues which the claimant must take into consideration. The claimant may be entitled to various forms of compensation from an insurance company or the public system, including consequential and/or future expenses, consequential and/or future loss of income, permanent injury compensation, etc.
