A bus accident in St Edmundsbury can occur at any time. If you were to suffer injuries as a result of this type of accident, would you know how to make a claim for compensation? Accident Advice Helpline is one of the UK’s leading law firms dealing exclusively with personal injury claims, with expert advisers to help you through every step of the way. Read more about the ways a claim could help you financially, as well as how to make a claim below.
How a claim for a bus accident in St Edmundsbury could help you
You may not have given much thought to the financial consequences of a personal injury in the past but for some families and individuals they can be very serious.
For example, many people will find themselves out of pocket because they’ve had to cover the cost of medical expenses and travel expenses brought about by their injuries. Typical expenses could include prescription costs, parking costs and even the cost of additional treatments, which can all drain your finances, particularly if your savings have taken a hit during the recent financial crisis.
For others, it may be necessary to pay out for a number of costs that you would only be paying because of your injuries. These could include costs such as childcare and babysitting fees, the cost of getting a cleaner or housekeeper to look after your home or even the cost of getting someone to do your grocery shopping.
Loss of earnings
One of the worst ways in which people can be affected by a public transport accident in St Edmundsbury is through a loss of earnings. Many people who suffer injuries are unable to work for weeks or even months at a time, and if you are one of the many people in the UK whose employers fail to pay sick pay, you could be facing a long period without your regular income. Statutory sick pay may not offer you enough to cover your regular expenses, and you could face some serious financial consequences if you fail to pay your debts.
Making a claim for compensation with Accident Advice Helpline could help ensure that your finances are in order during your recovery. If you can demonstrate that your accident occurred within the last three years, led to a personal injury and was someone else’s fault, we would like to hear from you.
