Do you need to be working in order to claim compensation for an injury?
Unfortunately, there are many myths about the compensation claims process which can lead to people believing that they aren’t eligible to make a compensation claim when they are. As some people are under the impression that you need to be working in order to make a claim, they can easily miss out on their chance to obtain compensation for their injuries. In fact, you don’t have to be working at the moment in order to be eligible to make a claim. Although many claims do relate to injuries at work, not all injuries are caused in this way so there’s no requirement for you to be in work at the time you make the claim. The best way to clarify is to talk to our compensation solicitor in Lowestoft.
The confusion may arise because if your injuries stop you working, your compensation can be increased to reflect this. If, for example, you’re unable to work because you’ve been hurt and you don’t receive your wages as a result, you may be able to claim this back when you seek redress with an compensation solicitor in Lowestoft.
However, this doesn’t mean that you won’t receive a significant amount of compensation if you’re not working at the time of the incident. As people are often surprised by how much compensation they could receive when they make a claim with an compensation solicitor in Lowestoft, it can be helpful to find out more about this before you make a claim.
