Do you require adaptations to your home because of an injury?
If you’ve been hurt, or you’ve suffered a very serious injury, you may find that you have permanent injuries or that you need to adapt your lifestyle in order to cope with your injuries. Even injuries which require weeks or months of rehabilitation could mean that you need to make certain adaptations to make things easier for yourself and to ease your recovery.
Although people are often able to begin their recovery at the hospital, there are various pieces of equipment to assist you in a hospital setting. Once you return home, you may find that you need to make adaptations to your house so you can get around more easily.
Whilst some of these might be minor adaptations, such as extra handrails or a seat in the shower, some people may require more significant changes, such as a stairlift or for worktops and tables to be lowered if they’re using a wheelchair.
Although you may be keen to make these changes so that you can return home more quickly, not everyone is able to afford to do this. As many accidents and injuries occur unexpectedly, not all families have enough savings to make the necessary changes when they’re needed.
In addition to this, you may find that your ability to work is affected so you may feel unable to commit to financing the adaptations because you don’t know if you’ll be able to maintain your income.
However, if your injuries weren’t your fault and they were caused by someone or something else, an injury solicitor in Lyneal could help you to claim compensation which could finance any help that you need.
Although claimants generally receive compensation for their injuries, the amount of compensation they can receive can be increased if they are likely to require on-going assistance or medical help. Before you make a claim, your injury solicitor in Lyneal or personal injury law firm may encourage you to undergo an assessment so that your needs can be predicted.
This can help to ensure that you claim the maximum amount of compensation possible and that, with help from an injury solicitor in Lyneal, you’re able to finance any changes you may need to make in your home.
