Accidents in Southend-on-Sea could leave you with a personal injury that may involve a significant recovery period. Being forced to take time off work can lead to a loss of earnings, which could have an effect on your finances. By making arrangements for flexible working however, you could continue to earn and get the money necessary to pay your bills.
We explore your flexible working options below as well as provide information on claiming compensation for your injuries.
Flexible working options for victims of accidents
You may want to discuss the following options with your employer to ensure that you can continue to work whilst you recover from your injuries, such as:
Working from home
Working from home (otherwise known as remote working) is all the more easier thanks to modern technology. If your employer is willing, you can be set up to carry on your normal duties at home allowing business to continue as usual, and for you to continue to earn throughout your recovery.
Working part time
Injuries can leave you exhausted or unable to carry out activities like you used to. Switching to a part-time working arrangement whilst you recover could be one way of allowing you to carry on working, but doing so according to your needs and making sure that you still have plenty of time to recover.
Flexible working hours
Flexible working hours allow you to come in and leave at different times, as long as you are in your office for your core hours, or for a certain length of time. This could help you alter your working week in a way that suits you, helping you to fit in doctor’s appointments and other elements without having to take annual leave or not be paid.
Compensation for a public transport accident in Southend-on-Sea
Of course, the option of flexible working may not necessarily be available to everyone, and some injuries can leave you unable to leave your bed, let alone be able to work from home. Making a claim for compensation therefore could be what you need in order to ease any financial pressure that has been put on you as a result of your injuries.
