Every year hundreds of people start claiming after a car crash in Nottingham. This is because the accident they have been involved in was not their fault, and they were left with injuries as a result. This is not fair, and while compensation will not change the fact that an injury has been sustained, it can make life a little bit easier.
How compensation can help
The simple fact of the matter is that there are many effects of having an accident and being injured that go beyond the physical pain that you may experience. Imagine you have had a road traffic accident and have been left with a broken leg. Not only is this painful but it will limit what you are able to do in the recovery period following the accident.
Depending on what you do for a living you may not be able to go to work. This is especially true if your job is in any way physically demanding. You may be a lorry driver, or a PE teacher – neither of these jobs are possible to do when you have a broken leg. This in turn is going to mean that you are likely to have to take time off from work. Depending on the terms of your employment contract this could mean that you are paid at a reduced rate, or not paid at all.
Either way, there is a good chance that your income is going to suffer significantly as a direct result of your injury. All because someone else didn’t pay enough attention or was negligent in their actions. There is no reason why you should have to pay a financial as well as physical price for this – and that is how compensation can help.
You may also find that you have to make some additional payments as a result of your accident. Perhaps you have to rely on public transport instead of driving yourself. You might have to cover the cost of travel to hospital appointments, whether this be by car or taxi. It doesn’t matter. If you keep records and where possible receipts your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will be able to help you recover all out of pocket expenses you have had to make.
