When you suffer any kind of injury, especially the kind that requires treatment in hospital followed by extensive physiotherapy and numerous other appointments with a GP, it’s only natural to start thinking about the cost of personal injury solicitors in Swindon.
If this accident wasn’t your fault, why should you be the one to suffer? After all, you weren’t to blame for the accident; you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, yet you’re the one who is undergoing scans, tests and even operations as a result of someone else’s mistakes.
You certainly shouldn’t be worrying yourself with the cost of personal injury solicitors in Swindon when you should be concerned about getting the rest you need to help with your recovery.
Accidents can be very distressing
However, the financial effects of an accident can often be as distressing as the physical or the psychological effects for some people, especially if the injury is so severe that they are signed off work for a significant period of time.
Take a car accident as an example. If a person who usually works outdoors is caught up in an accident in which they sustain a broken leg, they’re going to be unable to perform their usual duties and as a result they might be consigned to resting at home for several weeks, even months, before they can go back to work.
As a result, their employer may take one of two options, depending on their contract of employment. Either they will reduce their normal salary to a statutory sick pay – which still means an income, just less than usual – or they will stop paying them altogether because they are paid hourly.
In the case of the latter it can be very distressing, and any kind of stress can just add to the duration of the recovery. All doctors will recommend plenty of rest, but getting that when you’re constantly worried about paying the bills is nearly impossible.
That’s why people worry about the cost of legal representation. If they can get a good lawyer, then they might stand a chance of winning some compensation…only they can’t afford it because they’re unable to work.
