If you are concerned that your compensation claims value in Poole isn’t going to be high enough to make it worthwhile making a claim in the first place, there are ways to find out what you can do to get more money from either your claim or other forms of benefit and compensation.
Having financial stability after any accident may be really important to you and your family, and give you the time and support you need to get back to normal sooner rather than later. Here are some of the ways you can find out what you are entitled to.
Speak to your local authority
There are lots of different types of benefits and useful grants which can be used by those struggling due to illness or injury, which aren’t exactly advertised, meaning that lots of people don’t know about them.
If you speak to your local authority, they may be able to give you more information about these, and help you to begin applying for them as soon as possible.
Speak to an advice service
There are lots of advice services out there, some of which are specifically for this type of situation whilst others may be more general services.
It is still worthwhile speaking to any advice service you can, as not only can they let you know what you may be entitled to, they can also speak to you about how you should proceed with making these claims and getting the money you are owed.
Speak to your employer
With many types of job you should be receiving statutory sick pay for any time that you are off work. There may also be other forms of money or loan that your employer can help you out with whilst you are recovering from your injury.
