Why make a claim after a bus accident in Tyne and Wear?
If you have been involved in an accident while travelling by bus, you may be left suffering with a number of painful injuries.
These injuries can make your life incredibly difficult, and result in a great deal of pain and suffering. Between managing your recovery and dealing with things like childcare and running the household, it may be the case that seeking compensation is the last thing on your mind. It shouldn’t be however, as it can play a large role in assisting you with all of the above – and more.
There are a number of ways in which financial compensation can be helpful following a bus accident in Tyne and Wear:
Supplement lost income
If you have been in an accident, you could have lost the ability to go work at all, or perhaps you’ve been rendered working part-time hours. This could lead to a dip in your income at a time when you are likely facing a number of unexpected expenses. With compensation, you can ensure your household finances don’t suffer as a result of your accident.
Pay for treatment
You may incur costs with prescriptions, and you may have to pay money for treatments that are not available on the NHS. You should not have to pay for these out of pocket, and so by keeping the receipts, you can ensure you’re fairly reimbursed.
Costs for help around the home
Cleaning, cooking, taking care of children, walking the dog – all of this and more can become next to impossible if you are living with painful, debilitating injuries. With compensation, you can afford help around the house, along with any modifications you may need to make to your living space in order to aid your recovery.
