Personal accident claims – Categories of financial losses
- Loss of income – many injuries make it impossible for the injured person to work and this may last for several weeks or even months. Some people have employment rights to full sick pay for several months and so they would not lose money if they are not able to work. Once this period has passed they start to lose money. Others do not have sick pay at all and end up losing a lot of money right from the start. If you are self-employed you may have to close down a business or hire agency staff to cover your absence.
- Travelling expenses – this can be a particular problem in rural areas where affordable public transport is simply not provided. You may have to pay expensive taxi fares to get to your hospital appointments and then get you back home again. Even if there is a bus service, are you physically able to get on it? If you are able to drive to your hospital appointments or have a friend who is willing to drive you then there will still be fuel costs and car parking fees.
- Buying in extra help – we fulfil a certain role within our family or within our household arrangement. This may include our contribution towards household tasks such as cooking and cleaning and for some people also includes caring for children. Other people care for a dependent adult relative. If we are injured we may have to employ someone to carry out these tasks on our behalf. This will lead to a mounting pile of bills.
- Buying in personal care – very seriously injured victims cannot manage regular personal care tasks such as eating, washing and dressing. Buying in this type of care is extremely expensive – especially over a long period of time. Some of the more major injuries that could feature in a personal accident claims case, such as spinal injuries, can be permanent.
