Although you can call our Accident Advice Helpline number on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile to get an update on your claim. However, this does not help you in the meantime if you are having financial difficulty.
You may find it difficult physically or psychologically to go back to work after you have been in a serious accident. Other financial problems can occur if a family member has been killed due to an accident which wasn’t their fault, leaving you without their financial support. If you have suffered a severe injury and need some expensive surgery, or help to get around, then this can be another expense that may leave you in financial difficulty.

If you cannot work
If you cannot work because of your injury claim in Omagh then you may be able to claim benefits. Employment and Support Allowance is a type of disability benefit which will pay your outgoings and provide you with a little extra money to live on while you are unable to work. ESA can be claimed by those with physical and psychological injuries and difficulties so even if you are struggling to go back to work because of the trauma of your accident you may still be able to claim.
Speak to your employer as soon as possible. Let them know the situation and find out what support they may be able to offer you in the meantime. You may be able to get sick pay for a short time. This will be better than nothing whilst you are waiting for your injury claim to process.
