Making a civil service worker accident claim is easier than you might think but it could be that you are wary of taking that step. It is understandable, the thought of taking legal action is not an easy one and you need to be sure that it is the right thing to do. However, there are many reasons for why you should consider making a personal injury claim.
Perhaps another person caused the accident that resulted in your injury, or there was an absence of health and safety procedures being followed. You should not accept being injured by another person’s actions, or inactions. If this is not resolved then other people can be hurt in a similar way and you will always know that it could have been prevented.
Are there any other reasons why I should make a claim?
Yes, you should consider making a personal injury claim if you have been left out of pocket since this accident. You might not think that an accident could cost you money but once you have taken into account the time off work while you recover, your income could have dropped considerably. This will cause you many problems when the bills are still arriving. However, being out of pocket is not only caused by loss of earnings. It can also be as a result of paying out for things like prescriptions, physiotherapy, counselling and travel to and from your medical appointments. You may not need to pay out for all of these things but paying out for any of them can be a problem when you realise that you would not have to do it if the accident had not happened.
What injuries can I claim for?
If the accident was caused by another person then it does not matter how severe your injury is when it comes to a claim – you may be able to make your civil service worker accident claim anyway.
