Accidents at work do happen, and if you’ve been injured as a result of an accident that had led to time off work, you may be worrying about loss of earnings. If you’re injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, either due to employer negligence or someone else’s fault, you may be eligible to claim compensation for pain, suffering and loss of earnings – this could cover your pay whilst you are off work as well as any medical expenses you have incurred for treatment for your injury.
Perhaps you’ve been injured as a result of a slip or trip at work – wet floors without warning signs are a common cause of workplace accidents. This is classed as employer negligence, and you could claim for compensation if you’re injured as a result. If you’re involved in a road traffic accident due to another driver being distracted, or driving carelessly, you may spend time in hospital being treated for your injuries. In situations like this, you’ll probably be worried about how to pay your household bills whilst you are off work. Compensation for personal injury claims will take into account your loss of earnings, and if your claim is successful you could receive damages which cover not only your medical expenses but also your lost wages. You’ll need to prove that the accident and subsequent injury was someone else’s fault – this can sometimes be a tricky process, and that’s why you need an expert personal injury lawyer to guide you through the claims process from start to finish, ensuring you get the compensation you deserve.
