Injury solicitors in Churchill
How would a personal injury compensation pay-out affect your life if you were to retain the services of an injury solicitor in Churchill and successfully take action against a negligent party after suffering an accident that was not your fault?
For a start, on top of any damages you were able to claim, there would be a chance that you would also be able to reclaim any expenses you were forced to meet as a result of being hurt in an incident that you were in no way responsible for. This alone could amount to a considerable sum of money if you had to pay for medical treatment, travel costs, extra childcare or alterations to your home. You might also be able to claim back any income you lost if you were forced to take time off from your work unpaid while you recovered from your injury.
What might an injury solicitor in Churchill win you?
The amount an injury solicitor in Churchill may be able to win you will depend on a number of factors, not least the nature of the incident that led to you being hurt and the severity of your injuries. If you’d like to get a feel for the sort of money you could be looking at, why not use the 30-second claims calculator on the right-hand side of this page.
You’ll be free to spend any compensation your injury solicitor in Churchill manages to win for you on anything you like. You won’t even have to pay any income tax on it. You will however have to be conscious of the fact that it might affect your entitlement to any state benefits you receive. As such, you should declare your win at the earliest possible opportunity. If you continue to claim and then spend all your pay-out, you could face a large fine or even imprisonment if it later turned out you had continued to claim benefits you were not entitled to.
If you’ve been paid benefits that covered some things part of your compensation pay-out was for, you may have to pay this back. Again, failure to do so could result in harsh penalties. The same will be true if you’re an undischarged bankrupt. If you have been made bankrupt, contact the official receiver after securing a compensation pay-out.
