Between medical and travel expenses, care costs and loss of earnings – you may soon start to find yourself in financial hardship. Helping people who have been affected by their injuries financially is a big part of what we do. Read more about the financial cost of a personal injury, and how to get help below.
Financial cost of a personal injury
Your personal injury could mean that you suffer from the following expenses:
Loss of earnings
Whether you are self-employed or working for a business or organisation, a prolonged period of absence could mean that you suffer from a loss of earnings. Statutory sick pay often isn’t enough to cover your mortgage payments and other bills and outgoings and could lead you into debt unless something is done about it.
Medical expenses can soon start to add up, and the longer the recovery period, the higher they will be. You may need to pay for your prescriptions or even for additional treatment, all of which is unfair to pay for an accident that wasn’t your fault.
Help around the home
If you live alone or even with your family, some help around the home could ensure that your routine remains the same and that yourself, your home and your family are looked after whilst you recover. This can however be expensive when added up over time, and you may need some help in order to meet these costs.
Many injuries can leave you unable to drive, requiring public transport and private transport such as taxis to help you carry out your normal activities like getting to work and shopping. This along with hospital visits and appointments can soon accumulate and get out of control and should not be your concern to pay.
