Loss of income after accident – knowing your rights
An accident can cause a lot of physical pain, but it can also result in financial worries if you are left out of work because of your injuries, especially if you are the main breadwinner in your household. The last thing you want is to have to worry about keeping a roof over your head when you are in pain, especially if the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. If someone else was to blame, you can make a compensation claim in Skenfrith, which will help you to recover the costs of being left out of work.
Effects of loss of income
A loss of income can leave devastating effects on your mental well-being and that of your family. If you have an accident which causes injuries, you may be unable to carry out the same tasks as before. It may be a short term problem but it could also be more permanent, which can obviously cause a lot of worry and stress. If this is the case and you were blameless for the accident, you should make a claim for compensation.
