03 Loss of Earnings
If you have lost wages/earnings because of injuries suffered in an accident, this loss can also be included in your personal injuries claim. More serious personal injuries claims with serious injuries can include a claim for future loss wages/loss of earnings or loss of future employment opportunity. There are various experts reports which are needed to support this aspect of your personal injuries claim and we will advise if you they are required.
04 Loss of Earnings
Legal costs are not included in a claim which has been assessed by Personal Injuries Assessment Board
(PIAB). This means that you will be responsible for the discharge of your litigation costs. When a case proceeds to Court, the legal costs will be recovered from the party at fault for your injury, if you are successful with your case.
Again, the legal costs associated with investigating the case and dealing with the PIAB stage will not be recovered from the party at fault for your injuries, even if you are successful with the case. Accordingly, it will be necessary to pay this part of your legal costs, usually from the reward received. Before anycase is taken we will discuss with you what the likely costs will be and how they will be calculated.
