How to take care of your family after an accident, and make a ‘no win, no fee*’ accident claim
If you have had a serious accident and been badly injured, it may take time for you to get back to normal and be able to go to work and cope with normal day to day activities again.
During this time, you will still want to be able to take care of your family and your household just as you could before, and this means that you will have to make some changes and accept that things will be a little different for a while. Whether it was just you that was injured in your accident, or more than one member of your family, the things that you can do to improve the situation will still be about the same.
- Sort out your finances. The first thing that you need to do to be sure that you and your family are ok after an accident is to ensure that your finances are sorted out for the time being. This means asking your employer about sick pay, or finding sickness benefits. Your doctor can help you to get sickness benefit quickly and easily by signing you off from work.
- Get help. If you can afford it, it might be worth paying for someone to come in and help with day to day chores and looking after your children. If not, ask friends and family if they would be willing to take turns helping around the house until you can move around more freely.
- Get your insurance paid out. As soon as possible, apply for a payout from your car or health insurance, depending on the type of injury that you have had. This money will come in helpful and can also help to put your mind at rest, allowing you to relax and focus on your recovery. Try to let your insurer know what is happening within a day of the accident to speed up the process.
