If you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault and have been forced to take time off from work unpaid, it will be likely that working with a no win no fee* solicitor in Brent will be a necessity. If you work on a freelance basis, are a contractor or run your own business, being put out of commission for any length of time will mean just one thing; losing money.
Fortunately, making a successful no win no fee* accident claims will not only see you awarded compensation for your injury. If you can prove you’ve lost income as a result of being hurt, you may well be able to make a claim for the money you lost against the party that was responsible for your predicament.
Loss of income and working with a no win no fee* solicitor in Brent
Imagine that you were injured in an accident that was not your fault and were forced to take six months off work without pay. This would be enough to bankrupt many people, even after taking into account any meagre state benefits you might be entitled to during your convalescence.
Is it right that you should be made to suffer financially as a result of the negligence or recklessness of the person or organisation that was responsible for the incident that led to your injury? Of course it’s not. Making a no win no fee* accident claim could see your losses covered, along with the reimbursement of expenses linked to your injury and compensation.
You’ll need to prove that you lost money, but this shouldn’t be too hard to do. If you can demonstrate that you had a consistent income before you were hurt or produce testimony that you had work lined up that you were unable to take as a consequence of being injured, you should be OK. Most people who work for themselves and find they are in this situation, would ask their accountant to confirm just how much income they have lost.
