Practical issues after an accident and how to find a law firm
After any serious accident there will be a number of things which need to be sorted out in the weeks and months that follow. Financial issues can be the most stressful, as you will need to sort out things like insurance, and paying for your living expenses whilst you are off work recovering.
There will also be physical and emotional issues to deal with, as having a serious accident or injury can take a lot out of you, and take some time to recover from. The practical issues can fall down low on the list, for this reason, but these must be taken care of as well.
- Fixing damage. If you have been in a road accident then you will need to get your car repaired or replaced, and perhaps find a hire car whilst you are waiting to have your own vehicle back. Your insurance may be able to deal with this if you have fully comprehensive cover, but otherwise you will need to sort this out on your own.
- Household chores. Whilst you are recovering from any injuries, it may be difficult or even impossible for you to keep up with household chores. Consider asking friends and family to help out for a short while, or hiring a cleaner.
- Work. If you have your own business or do not want to take too much time off work, you will need to try to keep up with what needs to be done during your recovery. If you have an employer then speak to them about modified hours or working from home. If not you may want to hire someone to help out.
- Looking after children. During this time you may need help taking care of your children. Friends and family can be useful in helping you out with childcare.
