Being injured in an accident can have far-reaching consequences. Many people just think of the initial injury and the pain and suffering that may cause, but such injuries can be far more serious and have an impact long after the cuts have healed. In such cases it is often worth considering making accident and injury claims in Harlow to recover any compensation that could be due to the innocent victims of accidents.
Using accident and injury claims in Harlow to recover lost income
One of the biggest impacts you are likely to experience (aside from any physical implications of your injuries) involve your work.
When you have been seriously injured in an accident you may need to take extensive time off to recover. For most people whilst they are not at work then they are not able to earn an income. Even if you are entitled to statutory sick pay this is going to be significantly less than you would have earned under normal working conditions, and could well only be a temporary solution at best.
This means that your income is going to be affected and you are likely to start struggling financially. This is especially the case if yours is the sole (or main) income for your family.
You may be lucky enough that you only have to take a short period of time off work, however, many find that they need weeks or even months to fully recover and return to their normal duties.
Others find that they are not able to return to work at all, and may have to find alternative employment or even retire on medical grounds.
These are all things that can be taken into account by your Accident Advice Helpline if you decide to make accident and injury claims in Harlow.
Your solicitor will be able to determine how much you have missed out in terms of income and wages, even bonuses or commission, with the help of your employer. This will be included in your compensation claim.
Also included will be any potential income you have been deprived of, for example, if you have to take an alternative job with reduced hours and reduced income as a direct result of your injuries or accident.
