The costs that a Gelligaer accident at work claim can help cover
When anyone is injured in an accident there are usually many extra expenses that are as unexpected as the accident itself. There can be extra medical costs, travelling costs, childcare, home help and many other things that can add up to a lot of money over a very short period of time. The financial drain can be compounded by any earnings that can be lost if you are employed, and the money situation can become very bad for victims.
