Road traffic accidents in Buckhaven can cause injury, and when this happens, it can leave the victim in a very difficult situation.
Painful – and costly
The most obvious difficulties are the physical ones. When you’re in an accident, you might suffer a few bruises and some cuts, but you might suffer far more serious problems – multiple fractures, severe blood loss, or head injuries.
Even an injury such as whiplash could mean that you’re out of action for a few weeks because of the pain – and even a relatively minor injury of this kind could cause you to lose money.
How financial problems arise from road traffic accidents in Buckhaven
Money troubles following road traffic accidents in Buckhaven usually happen in two ways:
- Loss of income
Income loss can happen when you have to take time off work. The best case scenario is if you take a short period of time off work, and your employer pays full sick pay for the duration.
Of course, if you work somewhere that doesn’t have such a sickness policy in place, you could find yourself in financial trouble quite soon – and if you’re self-employed, particularly if your work involves physical activity, you might not have the ability to earn your living.
The expenses arise because you suddenly find that you have to hire people to do things that you would normally do. For example, you’d normally wash the dishes and do the laundry, but you can’t when you’re recovering from road traffic accidents in Buckhaven, so you hire a home help.
Don’t forget, also, that deliveries cost money, as do public transport fares and prescriptions!
