If you have had a serious road accident and sustained serious injuries then it may take you a little while to get back to normal and back into your everyday routine. During the weeks and months which follow your accident it is likely that you will have to focus on your physical health and trying to stay afloat financially, especially if you are very badly injured.
However, once the worst is over physically, you can then start to think about everything else that needs to be done to get you back on your feet, including making road accident claims in Dacorum if your accident was not your fault. Here are some of the things you will want to get sorted out after your injuries have begun to heal.
Think about a compensation claim
See what evidence you can get together to prove that your accident was serious and that you were not at fault for it. You can look at police reports made at the time, medical assessments and even things like witness statements and CCTV to work out whether or not you have a good case for compensation. If you do, compensation is a great way to help you get back on your feet by providing you with money so that you can focus on your recovery.
Think about getting back to work
Your employer should give you some time off after a serious accident, and you will receive sick pay during this time. When your injuries are still making it difficult for you to get back to work a while after the accident, though, you do need to think about how you are going to return to employment and start making money again.
Talk to your employer about working from home or returning to work part time until you are feeling stronger. Your employer is likely to be happy that you want to get back to work and be willing to come to an agreement with you.
