    Compensation for unemployment after an injury


    Suffering any type of injury can cause all kinds of problems. For example you might take a long time to recover from it, or you may find you are left with issues that mean you never recover. Imagine losing the feeling in your foot due to nerve damage from an accident for example, or being left with a limp or being unable to use one hand.

    In these situations it is easier to see how some people may be left unable to work as the result of suffering from an injury. This can lead into financial issues as the income they were relying on will no longer be there. Even if they are entitled to claim benefits of some kind, this will not replace the income they will have lost.

    Dealing with unemployment after an injury

    If you end up suffering an injury that causes you significant ongoing pain or you find yourself in a situation where your injury never fully heals, you could be unable to work from that moment on.

    While this will always be frustrating and upsetting, it will be even more difficult to come to terms with if your injury was caused by someone else. For instance, were you injured as a result of an accident where you were run over by a car being driven without due care and attention? Were you hurt while at work because the proper health and safety elements were not followed at all times? If so, you may have an opportunity to claim compensation for unemployment after an injury.

    What to do next

    If you are already in this situation it makes sense to get professional legal advice as quickly as you can. There is a three-year window in which you must do this after suffering an injury you feel was someone else’s fault. The legal advice can ensure you find out whether you have a reasonable chance of making a claim for compensation.
