When you use public transport, you put your trust in the people operating the service to get you to your destination safely. If that doesn’t happen and you suffer an injury as a result, it could have some serious consequences for your normal daily activities. Below are some of the ways in which a public transport accident in Broxbourne can have an effect on your life and what you can do to claim compensation for your injuries.
How can a public transport accident in Broxbourne affect you?
It could stop you from working
For some people, the thought of a few weeks off work with your feet up sounds like heaven, but what if you weren’t being paid for that time? That’s what could happen if you suffered an injury and your employer doesn’t pay you sick pay. The loss of earnings over time could really harm your finances and affect your ability to pay key bills such as your mortgage or loan repayments.
It could stop you from getting around
Some injuries can leave you unable to drive, or even walk which can seriously hinder your ability to carry out your day to day activities. This may mean that you have to use private transport such as taxis in order to help you carry out everyday tasks like shopping or taking the kids to school.
It could stop you exercising
Exercising is important for our health, and a period away from it could cause us to put on weight or decrease our fitness levels. Following an injury, it could take a long time before you’re allowed to exercise again which can have a number of consequences.
