If you have been in an accident, then getting help with a North Yorkshire legal team such as Accident Advice Helpline can help you to get the compensation you deserve for your injuries, making it much easier to make a claim. There are many people who decide not to proceed with a claim, mainly because they’re unaware of what the process involves. See below for our list of reasons why you should claim accident compensation below as well as details on how to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline.
Reasons to claim accident compensation
Some of the top reasons to claim accident compensation include:
To cover a loss of earnings
A loss of earnings can seriously affect your finances. As many employers only pay statutory sick pay or none at all, you could find yourself unable to afford your rent or mortgage, card payments, loan payments and all your other usual utilities. It is important therefore to make a claim for any loss of earnings which have occurred as a result of your accident.
To compensate travel and medical expenses
Between appointments at the hospital, prescription costs and other treatment costs, you could find yourself severely out of pocket whilst recovering from your injuries. It is unfair to expect victims of accidents for which they were not to blame to have to pay unexpected bills and expenses and compensation could help to recover these costs.
To cover unexpected household expenses
Whilst recovering from your injuries, you may decide that you need to get some extra help around the home such as a child-minder or cleaner to help keep your home in order whilst your injuries prevent you from doing so yourself. These costs can begin to add up over time and, as they aren’t usually a part of your household expenditure, could leave you struggling with your other expenses.
