Seeking compensation for head injuries in North Dorset is a sensible thing to do. While no amount of compensation is going to change the fact that you have been injured, perhaps seriously, it can take some of the other external pressures off you in the aftermath of your accident.
Why you should seek compensation for head injuries in North Dorset
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we know only too well that after you have been injured in an accident the last thing you are going to want to do is speak to a solicitor. We get that. However, you don’t have to start a claim immediately (you generally have to do so within three years though) so you don’t have to pick up the phone within hours of having an accident.
You can contact us when you feel better – perhaps when you are fully recovered, or just when you feel stronger if your recovery is likely to take a long time.
The point of making a claim is to hold someone accountable for what happened to you and get the financial compensation you deserve for any losses you have sustained as a result of your accident. While making a claim early on makes sense from the point of view of gathering evidence, leaving it longer make sense too. It can take some time, at least a few months to fully gauge how much an accident has affected you or cost you.
For example, with a head injury you are likely to have to take some time off from work. In order to fully recover you need time, relaxation and as stress free a zone around you as possible. This may not be possible if you are rushing to and from work keeping up with your usual schedule.
If you do take time off you may find that you are put on sick pay or any other form of benefit. This will undoubtedly be lower than your usual income, and this in itself can cause additional stress. How will you pay your bills? How will you survive? Compensation will recover all this lost income and pay it back to you in one go.
