How To Claim For Injuries And Losses Suffered Due To Road Accident?

Road accidents can happen to anyone, even the most careful among us. The event itself can be stressful to the parties involved and the damages can range from minor dents or injuries to severe total loss or permanent disability to the drivers and passengers alike.

This involves all claims for injuries or fatalities which includes:

  1. Pain, suffering and loss of amenities from injury sustained;

  2. Medical expenses / nursing costs;

  3. Loss of earnings / loss of future earnings / earning capacity;

  4. Loss of dependency;

  5. Funeral expenses; and

  6. Bereavement.

The injured parties have to submit their claim from the Third Party Insurer (Insurance company which insured the third party vehicle).

Regardless, it may be best to engage a personal injury lawyer to handle the claim and ensure that the process is going in accordance with your best interests to claim maximum compensation for your injuries.

HWAM recently represented a client for a personal injury claim which was due to the road accident at Lebuhraya Besraya, Kuala Lumpur. 

The total claim was approximately RM100,000.00 which included the pain and injuries sustained by the three and also special damages. Closed fracture base of 5th metatarsal, post-traumatic stress disorder, major depressive disorder with anxious distress, closed fracture distal phalanx, and other injuries were sustained together with loss of earning, medical expenses, and more.
