Special compensation refers to any repayment that you may request as a result of an injury. That is, if you incurred an injury and you had to miss work then you could request both the past wages that you had to miss as a result of your injury as well as any future wages that you may miss because you are still recovering. This category also encompasses any medical bills that you may have had in the process of having your injury treated. That also includes any future medical bills—for instance, if you have continuing therapy or physical therapy—and additional expenses like household expenses that you are unable to meet.
These are referred to as “general,” because it is expected that all those who suffer from a personal injury will have some kind of general damages. Pain and suffering is one of the most common compensations, but there are many others including mental anguish and loss of companionship in particular circumstances.
Wrongful Death Compensation
These damages only occur if you have lost a family member or loved one as a result of an accident or injury. In these cases, you can claim the costs of a funeral, any medical bills that the loved one may have incurred before their death, and emotional distress of the remaining family. You can also claim any wages that they would have earned that would have helped support your life. This also partially ties back to the loss of companionship as that type of damage can qualify as both wrongful death and general.
