Making a compensation claim after an accident in which you have been badly injured can be a great way for you to recover as quickly and comfortably as you can from your injuries. The money from a compensation claim can help you to pay for private medical treatment which will help you to get back on your feet sooner rather than later. It can also pay for time off work and other expenses which help you to recover.
Dealing with all of the costs of recovering and making a claim can be a worry, though, so here are some ways to deal with the cost of personal injury solicitors in Tyne and Wear as well as other expenses.
Private medical treatment
If you feel that you really need private medical treatment to get your injuries dealt with much more quickly, you may be able to use your own personal health insurance, or health insurance from work if you have it.
If you don’t have health insurance yet feel that you need this treatment as soon as possible, it may be worth borrowing the money and claiming it back as an expense on your compensation claim.
Time off work
Time off work can be expensive, as sick pay is often not the same as you would be earning if you were in work, and you also have to deal with the various expenses that come with being injured.
Make sure that you look into benefits as well as sick pay, to ensure that you are getting everything that you are entitled to.

The cost of personal injury solicitors in Tyne and Wear is something which could easily put you off making a claim in the first place, but you shouldn’t worry too much about this as there are ways around it.
Instead of paying your injury lawyer upfront, you can always hire them on a no win no fee* basis, which means that they get paid out of the compensation that they win for you. This not only means that you don’t have to source their fee before they make a start on your claim, but also that you can feel confident that they are trying as hard as they can so that they get their fee.
