If you’ve been injured through an accident at work, a road traffic accident or other accident which has left you unable to work, you’ll know just how stressful it can be. Time off work to rest and recover from your illness or injury is the best thing for you, but the added complication of loss of earnings due to time off can leave many people struggling to pay their household bills. The good news is that if you’ve been injured through no fault of your own, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation, and your settlement will take into account any loss of earnings relating to your accident and subsequent injury.
If you’ve been injured in an accident at work which has left you unable to carry out your duties, you’ll need to find out about your employer’s liability insurance. By law, all employers must have this, and a certificate of insurance should be displayed at work. If it isn’t, your employer must provide you with the details when you ask. You should seek advice from a specialist personal injury lawyer, who will be able to guide you through the claims process. Most personal injury claims can be settled out of court, so there’s no need to worry.
Road traffic accidents
If you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident and are unable to work, you could claim for loss of earnings. You’ll need to prove that the accident wasn’t your fault – for example, if it was caused by a distracted driver or someone driving in a vehicle that wasn’t roadworthy, then you could claim for compensation. In situations like this, having a professional personal injury lawyer on board is vital to ensure that your claim is processed properly, and that’s where Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
