Many people in the Islington area rely on public transport to get them around London, and whether it is on the tube, the bus, the overground or other form of transport, it’s possible that you may be a victim of a public transport accident in Islington. Did you know that you may be entitled to claim for more than just your injuries? We detail what you could be eligible to claim for below.
What you could be entitled to claim
Besides the costs of your injuries, you may be entitled to make a claim for some of the following expenses as a result of your injury, including:
Loss of earnings
A major cause of compensation claims, a loss of earnings through not being able to work because of an injury can have serious implications on your finances. If you’re self-employed, there is nobody to pick up your work and not all employers offer sick pay either. Compensation to make up for your loss of earnings can help ease the stress caused by worrying about money during your recovery.
Medical expenses can start to add up after an accident. From repeated prescription costs to having to pay extra for additional treatments, having to spend money because of an accident that wasn’t your fault is unfair and should not be happening.
Between hospital and doctors appointments to having to use public transport/private taxis to get around (if your injury leaves you unable to drive), travel expenses can start to add up during your recovery. These are costs that you would not have had if not for your injury, and the party at fault should be made to pay for them.
Everyday tasks such as shopping, cleaning, cooking and even looking after children/relatives can be difficult when you’re injured. A bit of help around the house could be a great idea, but it comes at a price. Any costs you’ve had to pay because of your injury should be compensated, and your claim may just well help with these costs.
