Do you need to make a no-win, no-fee Aberdeen compensation claim after being hurt whilst commuting to work?
Known for its oil industry, many people who work in Aberdeen or its surrounding areas are affiliated to the industry in some way. Whilst many people work and live in the area, if you work off-shore, you may be away from your friends and families for long periods of time. If you work off-shore on a regular basis, you may not actually be situated in Aberdeen. In fact, many people travel to the area in order to work before returning home again.
As with any type of commute, if there is a delay or an accident, it can prevent you from getting to work on time. Fortunately, most instances are minor traffic disturbances which shouldn’t hold you up for more than a few minutes, or hours at the most. However, if you are involved in a more serious traffic incident, you may find that you won’t be able to get to work at all. If, for example, you’re involved in a car accident, you may require urgent medical treatment so you could be transported to hospital straightaway. If you were due to be working off-shore, this simply may no longer be an option. If you require on-going treatment or medical check-ups, it wouldn’t be safe or sensible to allow you to work off-shore where you would be without medical care.
Unfortunately, this may mean that you have to miss out on working until your injuries have healed. If you don’t receive sick pay, there is a chance that the incident could affect your finances. If so, you may want to make a no-win, no-fee Aberdeen compensation claim. If the incident which caused your injuries wasn’t your fault, you could obtain compensation for the harm you’ve suffered by making a no-win, no-fee Aberdeen compensation claim.
However, you could claim for far more than the injuries you sustained. If you have lost income as a result of being hurt, or if you are likely to lose income in the future due to your injuries, you could receive additional compensation to reflect this.
