When you've been injured due to someone else's negligence, it's important to know how to calculate your personal injury claim. This ensures you receive fair compensation for your injuries and losses.

First, consider medical expenses. These include hospital bills, medication, rehabilitation, and any future medical costs related to your injury. Keep all receipts and records as they are crucial for your claim.

Next, factor in lost wages. If your injury prevents you from working, you can claim the income you would have earned during your recovery. This also includes future lost earning potential if your ability to work is permanently affected.

Pain and suffering are also part of the calculation. This compensates for the physical pain and emotional distress caused by the injury. While harder to quantify, it's an essential part of your claim.

Property damage is another consideration. If your vehicle or other personal property was damaged in the incident, the cost of repairs or replacement can be included in your claim.

Lastly, consider any other out-of-pocket expenses. This can include transportation costs for medical appointments or hiring help for tasks you can no longer perform.
