Have you or those close to you been personal injury accident victims?
Although any sort of injury or accident can be traumatic, personal injury accident victims often find that they require substantial medical care before they are on the road to recovery. If you and your loved ones have been personal injury accident victims and you’ve suffered serious injuries, you may find that you need to spend weeks, or even months, in hospital before you’re able to return home.
Even personal injury accident victims who are able to return home soon after the incident can find that they take a significant time to recover. As even the most seemingly minor of injuries can result in on-going pain or discomfort, personal injury accident victims may be forced to take time off work, switch job roles or even give up work altogether.
If your ability to work is affected by your injuries, you may feel that it’s particularly important to make a claim and obtain compensation. As the tough economic climate can make it hard to cope with a sudden loss of income, making a claim quickly can be advantageous if you’re hoping to receive your compensation as soon as possible.
If you’ve been a personal injury accident victim and you’ve lost income as a result, it’s important to ensure that your personal injury solicitor is aware of this. Although a personal injury lawyer will be able to help you make a claim for the injuries you suffered, they may also be able to help you claim back any income you’ve lost or expenses that you’ve incurred because you were injured.
If you’ve had to take a significant amount of time off, change your job role, or give up work altogether, this can amount to a significant sum – so it’s well worth letting your solicitors know before you start your claim.
