Had a public transport accident in Lichfield?
What steps do you need to take following a public transport accident? Aside from treating your injuries, there may be other issues that you need to face or take care of during your recovery. Below are some things to consider as well as advice on making a claim for compensation following your accident.
Things to consider following a public transport accident in Lichfield
Besides the doctors’ visits and getting better, you may need to think about the following issues after being in an accident:
An injury suffered during an accident could leave you unable to work. If that were to happen, would your sick pay or statutory sick pay cover your loss of earnings? Some employers don’t offer this kind of remuneration meaning any period of absence can have a devastating effect on your finances. You may need to have a discussion with your bank or with your family to see how you can manage this difficult period.
An accident could mean that you are out of work for days, weeks or even months. In this instance, your employer will need to make arrangements for your cover – either hiring someone temporarily or getting a colleague to take over your work. It may be possible for you to work at home whilst you recover, but this will need to be discussed properly with your employer.
Your family are sure to be concerned following your accident and may need support just as much as you do. If you find that it is difficult to keep your house in order and completing everyday tasks such cooking, cleaning and doing the washing, you may need to get some additional help in the form of a cleaner of housekeeper to ensure that your home life doesn’t suffer.
After dealing with the issues above, your next consideration may be to make a claim for compensation for your injuries. Where costs have been incurred as a result of your accident, compensation could go a long way to ensuring security and a worry-free recovery.
