If you have been involved in a public transport accident, you could make a public transport claim in South Somerset. This could help your finances and cover any out of pocket expenses that have occurred because of your injuries. But did you know the sorts of expenses you could be faced with following an accident?
Read about them here, and how to proceed with your claim with Accident Advice Helpline.
Expenses incurred following an injury
You may be left out of pocket if faced with paying the following as a result of an injury:
Whilst most of your treatment costs should be covered by the NHS, it’s possible that prescription costs and additional treatments may come at a price. If you’re faced with months of recovery and treatment time, these costs can begin to add up and drain your savings.
You may not have given much thought to travel expenses after an accident, but between the multiple hospital appointments and visits to your GP, they may begin to add up. Your accident may also have left you unable to drive, and if that’s the case, you may rely on public transport or private taxis to help you get around, take the kids to school and even do the shopping.
Loss of earnings
A loss of earnings could have a huge effect on your finances, leaving you unable to pay the mortgage, your credit card or loan payments as well as afford food and utilities. Unfortunately many employers fail to pay those suffering from injuries full sick pay, with some paying none at all. Unless you have plenty of savings in the bank, your injury could leave you in serious financial trouble.
