In addition to compensation for sequelae, you can claim for correction factors, disabilities, present and future expenses, need for help from third parties, housing adequacy and many other items that to be assessed.
Improvement of the compensation scale for serious injuries and sequelae
In 2016, the new Law 35/2015, of 22 September, on the reform of the system for assessing damages caused to people in traffic accidents with serious injuries, entered into force. In cases of sequelae or permanent injuries, this law gives injured persons left with disabilities that require intense support for their personal independence additional reparations, providing compensation in all cases for loss of earnings and emerging damages. In addition, the medical scale of sequelae was reviewed to adapt it to current medical knowledge.
Below are some examples of the changes to the accident compensation scales in the new 2016 law:
|Days in hospitalisation
|Intensive care unit
||de €400 a €1600
Before accepting any type of accident compensation offered by your insurance company(ies) or the other party:
1. Do not sign any documents.
2. Consult with your lawyer, as the amount is very likely to be less than what you could receive.
