Slip, trip or fall accident claim
Recently engaged couples have their whole lives to look forward to, so it can be a huge inconvenience when one of them suffers a slip, trip or fall that leads to a personal injury.
When one half of the couple is homebound with, say, a broken leg due to someone else’s negligence, it can curtail plans for the big day. This can end up costing more money, especially while the injured person may not be able to work while recovering.
Road traffic accidents are common, regardless of how serious they may be. A recently engaged couple may be involved in a car accident that puts one or both of them out of work for a significant period of time through injury.
If the accident was not their fault, it is likely they would qualify for road traffic accident compensation due to being injured in a car accident.
A recently engaged couple may decide to take a holiday to celebrate the beginning of their future together.
But those celebrations may be cut short if they suffer a personal injury in a travel accident at their hotel, for instance. They may also be victims of a mugging, for instance, leaving them without an engagement ring and with no more money, adding more inconvenience and financial loss to their wedding plans.
Accidents at work
If one half of the newly engaged couple is injured in an accident at work, such as a slip, trip or fall, they may be forced to take time off work for a lengthy period, leaving the other half of the couple to finance wedding plans and possibly mortgage payments.
In this case, they would be able to make an accident at work compensation claim and regain some of the money they lost due to the negligence of someone else leaving them injured.
One half of the recently engaged couple is knocked over by a car going too fast while they are cycling to work, resulting in a broken arm and concussion.
Due to the accident not being their fault and the fact they had to miss at least six weeks of work, they would be eligible to claim bicycle injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline.
