After a road accident, you may find that it takes you some time to get back on your feet again. If you have sustained very serious injuries, you may even have to quit your job whilst you are recovering, and this can cause serious financial problems over time.
Here are some of the things that you can do after a road accident, including making road accident claims in South Oxfordshire, to help you to stay afloat whilst you are unable to work, and to help you to get back on your feet again as you start to recover.
If your accident was not your fault then you should be able to claim compensation from the other party. Compensation will help you to stay afloat by offering money to replace lost wages, and any other expenses that you may have incurred as a result of the accident. This money will give you some breathing space until you are able to return to work.
Look into sickness benefits
Sickness and incapacity benefits are there to help you to pay your essential bills during a time that you are not able to work due to illness or disability. Visit your doctor and they will be able to give you a medical certificate which proves that you are too sick to work for the time being, and you can then make a claim for the money that you need.
