When you’ve been in an accident and got injured, life can be quite difficult for a while. You can’t always do the things you would normally do, such as cooking, cleaning and taking the children to school, you might even have to take time off work, too.
Family life, social life and work life are all impacted by that one incident that happened when you least expected it. That one incident that you’re annoyed and frustrated about, because you know that there was no need for it to happen, it was someone else’s fault that it did.
Fault determines eligibility to claim
The one good thing about this whole sorry state of affairs is that if someone else did cause the accident that was responsible for your current situation, you could be eligible to claim compensation through an accident solicitor in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
If you win your case, you will be paid a sum of money in compensation. This will cover the pain, suffering and lack of amenity that you have experienced as a result of your accident, as well as the expenses you have incurred.
Expenses? What expenses?
Anything that you wouldn’t ordinarily need, but which you’ve had to pay for, could be part of your claim. Would you normally need a taxi to go to the shops? Would you normally need a childminder to pick up your children from school and look after them until your partner gets home from work later? What about all the prescriptions for medication?
This could mean a lot of receipts, so why not get a file and put them all in one place? You can also keep your records of medical treatment in the file, so you’ve got everything to hand for your accident solicitor in Newcastle-under-Lyme. The more evidence you have, the easier things will be.
