    Compensation for loss of earnings due to a minor car accident


    Compensation for loss of earnings due to a minor car accident

    Car accidents come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes victims are very seriously injured in them. More often than not though, car accidents are minor and it is not uncommon for it to be one car running into the back of another. You might think that is fine, everyone will walk away unharmed, swap insurance details and that is the matter over with. But that is not the case. Even in this sort of car accident injuries happen. If you were not to blame and make a successful personal injury claim, you may also be able to claim compensation for loss of earnings due to a minor car accident.

    Even a minor injury can mean you need time off work to recover, and if your income is reduced because of this, you could be struggling financially. This is not fair when the accident was the fault of someone else, which is why the law says you can claim any costs and losses the accident has created.

    If you are thinking of claiming compensation for loss of earnings due to a minor car accident, you first of all have to make sure you fit the rules for making a personal injury claim:
