Road traffic accidents in Johnstone can be pretty scary. Whether it’s a minor collision or a major smash, and whether it involves two vehicles or several, there is always the risk of injury – and it could be severe.
Even in a minor bump that results in a whiplash injury, or perhaps some cuts and bruises, there is the potential for pain and suffering. It is likely, if this happens to you, that you won’t be able to do the things you normally would – meaning that your social life and family life could suffer.
A further consequence is financial trouble.
How money problems are caused by road traffic accidents in Johnstone
After an accident, you might need to take some time to recover. Your recovery period will depend on the severity of your injuries, but even something as relatively minor as whiplash will require you to take things easy for several weeks.
During this recovery period, since you are unable to perform your usual tasks, you might need to hire people to do things. For example, you can’t take your kids to school, so you hire a childminder. You can’t do the dishes and vacuum the carpet, so you hire a home help.
Before you know it, you have racked up a lot of expenses – and of course, you still have your usual household bills to think about.
On top of the expenses, there could be a loss of income
When recovering from road traffic accidents in Johnstone, it might be necessary to take some time off work. If you work for a company that has a generous sick pay policy, you might not lose any income. But if you don’t, even taking a few days off work could have a devastating effect on your bank balance.
If you’re self-employed, and you need to do physical tasks as part of your work, you might not be able to earn any money until you have recovered fully.
