Speak to an accident solicitor in Bawburgh about your injury claim
In cases of personal injury, where a victim was involved in a serious accident in the Bawburgh area and that accident was caused by somebody else’s negligence, the home carer is often forgotten in the first rush to claim compensation. However, it is important that family members caring for the injured person also get the occasional break or their own health will suffer, especially when the injured person needs long-term care.
Although there is financial help available through social services and various charities, the benefits system is so complicated and time-consuming, many people shy away from using it. Is the cost of a homecare worker or care attendant included in a personal injury claim?
This is just one of many questions non-fault accident victims and their families have when they contact an accident solicitor in Bawburgh about making personal injury claims.
Where complex and time-consuming medical issues need to be researched, many small law firms turn down personal injury claims, especially cases that involve medical negligence, industrial injury or multi-party defendants. Small law firms often do not have the manpower and resources to deal with complex personal injury claims, especially when they are supposed to provide services on a no-win, no-fee basis. When an accident victim or their carer calls round several law firms locally, there may not be a legal specialist willing to take on their case.

What does a compensation award include?
Compensation is awarded when:
- The accident victim was not at fault and their injuries were the result of somebody else’s negligence
- The accident happened within the last three years
- You received medical attention as a result of your injuries from the accident
Compensation claims can include money for:
- Stress, pain and suffering
- Loss of income during recovery
- Loss of future income, if permanently incapacitated in the accident
- Expenses for private medical treatment, home carers, specialist equipment to help with mobility, medicines, travel to and from GPs or hospitals or long-term care day care or care homes
These are just some examples of what is included in compensation claims. Families needing long-term care for their loved one can claim for care attendants or homecare workers who give them some respite from caring for their permanently injured family member long-term.
