An injury in Hornchurch case can involve a whole range of injuries and some of these can prevent you from participating in the normal daily activities that you need and want to do. For example, an ankle injury that you sustained whilst you were in work (an injury in Hornchurch occupational ankle injury) could cause you problems for between six and twelve weeks. During that time you may not be able to:
- Go to work – this can result in you losing money that you would have normally earned in wages. This can put a strain on family finances. Some employers do pay some sort of sick-pay but this does not always add up to your usual take-home pay and may only be available for a short time.
- Look after your children – if you are a carer for young children then your injury may have prevented you from doing this as you would normally like to. As a result you may have had to buy in extra childcare and this can be extremely expensive. Obviously, the more children you have the more expensive it will be.
- Looking after the household – we all fulfil certain tasks in our household and an ankle injury may mean that you cannot do this for a while. You may have to pay someone else to come in and do those tasks for you and these bills can mount up.
- Personal care – in the case of severe injuries you may not be able to care for yourself and may need assistance with normal personal activities such as eating, getting up, dressing and washing. Buying in help with this can be an expensive process.
