Alness, boasts a large whiskey distillery and well-groomed greens at the Alness Golf Club. Located in a beautiful part of Scotland, it is easy to see why so many choose to live, work and visit the town.
No matter where you live, work or play – accidents can and do, happen. Thankfully, accident injuries are usually minor, on average, with short term effects that require little help or adaptations to the home. Many people find that after a short rest period that they are back at work. But, you can still benefit from the help of an injury lawyer.
For other people, the damage caused from an accident is catastrophic. Some people suffer injuries that require long periods of hospitalisation, a long period of rehabilitation and expensive adaptations to their home as well as possible not being able to work full time, as they may have done previously. An injury lawyer would soon be able to help in these circumstances.
What can a compensation claim cover?
The detail of any compensation claim will be worked out with the expertise of your injury lawyer but can cover:
- The injury or injuries – many compensation claims will include a payout for the injury or injuries you received in the accident or incident that was not your fault.
- Travel costs – in some cases, many people were unable to drive due to injury or treatment they were receiving but still had to attend appointments at various clinics etc. Use of taxis or public transport can soon add up, especially at a time when you may not have the money if you are on reduced pay or statutory sick pay.
- Loss of earnings – if you are absent from your job for a long period of time, you may find that you are on reduced pay or on statutory sick pay. For some people, this can be considerably less than their previous earnings. Clearly, if this is the case then your injury lawyer may be able to help in getting these costs covered under the detail of your compensation claim.
