    A compensation claim’s value in Somerset


    Making a claim for a personal injury can help you recover some of the costs which have been incurred as a result of the accident. In this respect, your compensation claim’s value in Somerset could be more than you think. Below are some of the things which you need to consider whilst recovering from your accident, as they could be an important part of determining the value of your claim.

    What could affect a compensation claim’s value in Somerset?

    Whilst recovering from your accident, your finances may be affected by a number of factors, including:

    Travel and medical expenses

    Whilst the majority of your treatment costs will be covered by the NHS, there are some additional medical expenses which you will have to pay such as prescription costs and the costs of other treatments which you may require to help you recover more quickly. The cost of travelling back and forth between hospital appointments is another factor for consideration, as these costs can soon add up during a lengthy recovery period.

    The cost of getting help around the home

    For many, having a cleaner, a gardener or a babysitter is a luxury, but for those who have been affected by an accident, it could be a necessity. If your injury has left you unable to carry out your usual household tasks and chores or even care for your family, then some additional help may be needed. This cost will soon add up, and without savings or room in your budget for this expense, you could soon find yourself struggling financially.

    Loss of earnings

    Many accidents can leave you off work, with some victims needing months off while they recover. Many employers fail to pay workers full sickness pay, and statutory pay may not cover your basic expenses such as your mortgage. Some employers offer no pay at all, which could leave accident victims in serious financial difficulty.
