Broken bones, strains and sprains, head injuries, facial injuries – all of these different types of injuries will have their own recovery period, which can vary depending on the severity of the injury and the treatment you receive. Recovering from your injury after an accident can take time – in cases where surgery is required this time can be increased. There are even some cases where you won’t make a full recovery, for example if you have suffered a brain injury then the damage done can be permanent, affecting the rest of your life.
Claiming compensation whilst recovering from your injury
The amount of time it takes you to recover after an accident will affect how much personal injury compensation you could be entitled to claim. Whilst you’re recovering from your injury, it’s a good time to think about whether or not you wish to proceed with a personal injury claim. If you have suffered a serious injury, for example, if you have suffered a vertebral fracture and are unable to go back to work for months, you could make a claim which will take into account your financial losses.
So you could be compensated for your lost earnings whilst you are off work recovering from your injury. This can be a huge weight off your mind and can help you to feel better after your accident, regardless of who was at fault. The more serious your injuries and the longer the recovery period, the more compensation you are likely to receive after your accident, generally speaking.
Back to work in a week
Even if you have suffered minor injuries such as mild whiplash and you find yourself back at work in a week, you could still make a claim for personal injury compensation. If somebody else caused your accident, you’re entitled to be compensated for your pain, suffering and any financial losses you’ve suffered.
