    Bus accident in South Derbyshire

    Personal Injury Solicitors in South Derbyshire

    You may often see news stories or read headlines about accidents such as a bus accident in South Derbyshire, but have you thought much about what happens to victims afterwards?

    Victims of accidents may find themselves unable to work, housebound or unable to carry out everyday duties which can start to have an effect on their finances. Read more about the impact of personal injuries on victims as well as information on making a claim for accident compensation.

    Impact of personal injuries on victims

    Victims of accidents may find themselves unable to do a number of things they did before their injuries, including:

    Going to work

    Many injuries can leave a victim unable to return to work. This could be for a number of days but often victims are unable to work for weeks or even months at a time. Some employers may not pay sick pay, and some may only pay statutory sick pay, which may not be enough to cover household bills including rent/mortgage payments, credit card payments and more.

    An accident could lead to someone being unable to drive for a long period of time whilst they recover. Not being able to drive can have an effect on an individual’s independence and make tasks such as getting to work, taking the kids to school and even doing the shopping difficult. To make up for not being able to drive, a victim may have to use public or private transport on a long-term basis, which can begin to add up after a while.

    Carry out household tasks

    It can be difficult for those with injuries to carry out basic household tasks such as cooking, cleaning, doing the laundry or gardening. In order to keep things running smoothly at home, it may be necessary to bring in a cleaner or a gardener which become an expense over time.
