Tough economic times have been made just a little bit tougher by a change in the attitude of our employers. We’re seeing more people put in a position where they lose wages for any extended period of time off. So if you’ve been in an accident and you find your income slashed, what can you do about it? This article will tell you more about your rights and your chances of finding Broadland accident claim solicitors who can help you out.

When you’re in an accident you come under financial pressure in all sorts of ways. There could be the cost of travel to and from hospital, paying for medical treatments which may not be available on the NHS and other expenses. However, things get even worse if you lose out on money from your employment. Many of us depend on our monthly wage packets and if these dry up then we can quickly find ourselves running into some significant financial problems.
The problem is, this kind of situation is becoming increasingly common. Small businesses in particular are finding it difficult to get by so they may well be looking to cut costs in all sorts of ways. For this reason you may find yourself quickly placed on minimum wage or in some cases nothing at all.
What are your rights?
The good news is that you may well get some or all of this back if you are making a personal injury claim. When the courts assess how much compensation you should be entitled to, they will look at how much you have paid out already for treatment and other expenses, together with the amount of income lost. This can include income lost already and into the future.
For example, if someone had been working in the construction industry and found that this injury restricted their movement enough to make it impossible to perform their current job there would not only be the wages they had already missed out on but estimated earnings running away far into the future. Calculating the correct level of this can be a little tricky.
Getting the right assessment
When you contact our team of experts, we can do a number of things to help you make a claim. The first is to find a way of assessing the true extent of your injuries. Get as much information as possible and if necessary get a second medical opinion. Doctors can make mistakes and if they have missed something you could end up suffering as a result.
