Suffering an injury
Road accidents, even slips, trips and falls in public places can result in surgery. Even minor surgery means your soft tissue will take at least 6 weeks to heal and the older you are, the longer it will take for bones to knit and heal. If your job is to drive all day, you must wait until your doctor tells you it is safe for you to get behind the steering wheel again.
If you suffered head injuries in your accident, which resulted in surgery, you even have to inform the DVLA (Driver Vehicle Licencing Authority) of this fact, not just your insurers. A prolonged absence from your place of work eventually means a loss of income and if your doctor tells you that the accident and resulting surgery had a permanent impact on your ability to drive a vehicle, you must seek another form of employment, which may not be paid so well.
All these things add to your stress and suffering, which is why Accident Advice Helpline strives to provide victims of non-fault accidents with access to justice, but also to help them win compensation for their distress.
Your accident solicitor will ask for compensation on your behalf for:
- Your pain and suffering
- Your loss of income whilst you were recovering from your accident and subsequent surgery
