Many people ask us, ‘What happens when I get my compensation – what can I use it for?” The benefits of making car accident compensation claims in Cumbernauld include having a choice when it comes to spending the money.
In some cases this requires little thought or discussion – so many of our claims involve compensation for injuries that have limited the victim’s mobility to varying degrees. They might choose to spend the money on such things as equipment to help them in and out of the bath, or maybe to have their car adapted so their independence is not totally lost.
What else can car accident compensation be used for?
- If mobility is not an issue, you could use the money to supplement an income if you’ve had to cut down your working hours. Some people lose their income completely, and use the money received in compensation to replace it.
- Receiving specialised care at home is not cheap, but compensation gives you many more options in terms of rehabilitation. Unfortunately, every NHS Trust cannot finance all types of convalescence, and whether the help you need is available in your area can be something of a lottery.
- Intermittent care at home – sometimes people simply need to know that they can fund some form of care on an intermittent basis. The winter months can be particularly problematic for people with compromised mobility, but simple things such as being able to pay for a taxi to get out of the house can make a huge difference to morale.
