You can claim for:
- Damages for pain and suffering
- Past loss of wages or other income
- Future loss of income
- Past and future medical expenses
- Out of pocket expenses
If you need domestic assistance around the house for things that you once did before the accident e.g. washing clothes, mowing the lawns, cooking etc, you can make a claim for the total number of hours of assistance provided by family members or friends.
For example, if for a period of 12 months after the accident you received 9 hours of
assistance per week with cooking, cleaning around the house, washing and hanging out clothes, ironing etc, a claim can be made at the appropriate hourly rate for that assistance.
