Interim Compensation Payments In Medical Negligence Claims
In serious injury claims due to the magnitude of the injury the entire process of a medical compensation claim can be lengthy and, depending on the claimant’s individual circumstances, an ‘interim payment’ can be provided so as to help the claimant in a financial capacity until the case is fully settled.
This interim payment is essentially a partial payment of the total compensation and is usually awarded to provide for important costs which can often multiply-such as costs of medical treatment or care, transport, or even equipment required for adaptations to a house if there has been a serious injury, such a major spinal fracture.
Their function is to try to ease the financial hardship caused by the injury and where earnings cannot keep up with the length of the case and changes to lifestyle as result of the injury.
