If you have had an accident which was not your fault, and was caused by the negligence of another person, you should be in a good position to make accidental injury claims in Three Rivers against them.
Claiming compensation will help you to relax and focus on your recovery as it allows you to stop worrying about work and money for a little while, and gives you extra cash which allows you to pay for medical treatments and other expenses. What is key, though, is that you don’t blow all of your compensation money in the first few weeks of getting it. Here are some tips for avoiding this.
Know what the compensation is for
Before you even think about spending any of your compensation money, work out exactly what you have been given it for, as you will probably have just enough to cover these expenses.
If you have been given money for lost wages and medical expenses, put every penny that you need to cover these aside, as otherwise you may find that you need the money later and don’t have it.
Think about the future
Are you able to return to your job soon? Or might you have to take care of yourself on this money for a while?
Think about things like whether you will try to find a different job, or will need to buy a car to replace one which has been damaged. Thinking about the future will help you to realise exactly how much you actually have, and stop you feeling as though you have won the lottery!
Put it in savings
Put as much of the compensation as you can afford to into a high interest savings account, so that it can be earning you even more money whilst you have it. If you make this savings account relatively difficult to access then it should be easier not to blow your money.
