An accident which causes serious injuries can be very draining both physically and financially. The problem with having serious injuries is that you are unable to work, and when you can’t work your employer is forced to find someone to replace you whilst you focus on your recovery.
When it comes to going back to work, it is possible that you will be so behind that your employer cannot really justify taking you back on, meaning that you need to find another job with a huge gap in your CV. Here are some ways, including making accident and injury claims in Craven, that you can start to get back on your feet financially after an accident.
The best way for you to get some extra cash which can be used for all of your expenses after an accident, as well as providing you with some money to live on until you are back on your feet, is for you to claim compensation. If your accident was not your fault and you have evidence to prove it, then there is no real reason that a compensation claim shouldn’t be successful, and it will take a lot of the pressure off of you.
Ask about sick pay
If you are unable to work for a time, you may be able to get sick pay from your employer. Although this may not be as much as you would have usually got from your regular wages, it should keep you afloat for a little while, until you are able to return to work.
Look into other work
A broken leg may mean that you are unable to return to a very physical job, but will not prevent you from working in an office for a short time. Think about what your injuries prevent you from doing, but also what you can still do, and consider whether there is a job out there which you could still do for the time being.
