A Lincoln car accident compensation claim may be necessary if you are unable to work and left with unexpected bills to pay. In order to claim compensation, you may wish to use the services of a top law firm like Accident Advice Helpline, who specialise in compensation claims. Read more about the kind of costs you could be expected to pay as a result of your injuries and how to get in touch to make a claim below.
Costs associated with Lincoln car accident injuries
- Medical expenses – Whilst of course your treatment costs will be covered by the NHS, you may have to pay some unexpected medical expenses during your recovery. These include prescription costs, additional treatment costs such as physiotherapy or visits to a chiropractor as well as the cost of painkillers, bandages and others.
- Travel expenses – You may find yourself unable to drive as a result of your injuries, relying on expensive public transport and other types of transport such as taxis to help you get around. Between hospital appointments, taking the kids to school, going to work and so on, these costs could soon add up if you no longer have use of your car.
- Household costs – In order to help you maintain your home whilst recovering, you may need to get some additional help around the house such as a cleaner or housekeeper. This can be an expensive necessity which could affect your ability to pay your other bills if your recovery takes weeks or even months.
- Loss of earnings – Not being able to work can be one of the most devastating consequences of a personal injury. If your employer only pays statutory or even no sick pay whatsoever, you could soon find yourself in financial difficulty, and even rack up debts. In a time where most people’s savings have been affected by the economy, not being able to work whilst suffering from an injury can be extremely difficult for families and individuals.
