Should I consider making a personal injury claim?
After suffering a personal injury, whether caused by a traffic accident, an accident at work or a slip, trip or fall, many people are unsure about whether or not to make a claim. However, if you do suffer a personal injury, and the accident wasn’t your fault, you make a claim for a number of reasons, which we have outlined below. In order to make a claim you may think about contacting a lawyer in Sandiway or a national firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline.
Personal injuries come with unexpected costs
Personal injuries, even minor ones can come with unexpected costs. For example, if you need private medical treatment and don’t have health insurance, this could be a huge cost which you’re unlikely to have spare funds for. You may also find yourself out of work for a long period of time and if your company is unable to offer sick pay or can only offer you statutory sick pay, this loss of earnings can lead to mounting bills, debt and mortgage arrears.
Personal injuries can take time to heal
Unfortunately, some personal injuries may come with a lengthy recovery time, which can prevent you from doing a number of things such as caring for children or relatives, carrying out normal household chores or even prevent you from going on holidays. The costs associated with not being able to do these things yourself can add up, and may be able to be covered by a personal injury claim.
How will I know if I’m eligible?
In order to make a claim, the accident has to have happened in the last three years and must have been someone else’s fault. By contacting a lawyer in Sandiway, you can find out if you’re eligible and how to go about making a claim. Alternatively you can take the Accident Advice Helpline quick 30-second test here on the webiste to see if you are eligible to make a claim.
