Why should I make a personal injury claim with a lawyer in Mortehoe?
If you have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you’ve had a slip or fall caused by someone else’s negligence, or even been the victim of medical negligence, you may be able to consult with a lawyer in Mortehoe to discuss personal injury compensation. Below are just some of the reasons you should consider compensation.
You’ve suffered pain and discomfort
More than anything perhaps, a personal injury is painful. It can stop you going about your day-to-day life, and may even mean that you’re unable to leave the house. In that situation, you could claim compensation for the injuries and pain you’ve suffered.
You’ve been unable to go to work
There are many injuries that can mean that you are unable to work or even require a hospital stay. As the recovery process can take a while, you may find that you use up all of your sick leave. Some employers don’t offer sick leave, and if this is the case then a personal injury will result in a loss of earnings for which you can claim compensation.
You’ve needed extra help
If an injury has left you unable to carry out your regular tasks, such as housework, driving or looking after children or others, you may have had to pay for others to do this on your behalf. These costs are an example of what you could claim compensation for as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault.
You’ve had to pay medical costs
In order to aid recovery, you may have had to consult with professionals such as physiotherapists, chiropractors and more, which are costly, especially if you go private in order to get quicker appointments. Even if you received all your treatment on the NHS, you may have had to pay transport costs to and from appointments, as well as prescription fees. You could be entitled to compensation for these services.
