Accidents are all distressing, whether they’re relatively minor and more embarrassing than painful, or a serious condition sustained in a high-speed crash on the motorway. With the pain and any medical procedures you have enough to worry about, the cost of personal injury solicitors in Tameside should be the last thing on your mind.
You may already be facing a few days in hospital, followed by weeks or even months worth of physiotherapy to help you to rebuild the strength in the affected area, so thinking about how you’re going to get the money together to afford the cost of personal injury solicitors in Tameside is not going to help the recovery process.
It’s only natural that you’re going to think about it at some point, however, especially when the accident wasn’t your fault. Finding out that you’ve sustained a serious injury – or even a comparatively minor one – as the result of the actions of another person or thing (like a machine at work), can be hard to take.
Coping with the after-effects of your injury
Then finding out how long it will take to heal and how long you might be off work for can just make things ten times worse, especially when you have bills to pay and a family to look after.
Depending on your employment contract, and your employer, you may find that the accident leaves you on either reduced wages (as a result of a statutory sick pay policy), which will still mean that you have some kind of income during your recovery; or that you have no money coming in at all because you’re paid hourly.
As a result it can be very tempting to defy the doctors and to return to work before they say you are ready to do so, just to help to pay the bills. Rather than making your injury worse, or prolonging the recovery period because you’re not getting the rest you need, claiming for compensation could be the solution.
It’s not “an easy way out”, especially when you’re entitled to make the claim. Accident Advice Helpline have a policy where anybody who suffers a personal injury can claim compensation if it can be proven that someone else was at fault.
How do I cover the cost of personal injury solicitors in Tameside though?
