Every year in the United Kingdom, thousands of accidents leave individuals like you injured through no cause of your own. A percentage of these accidents are road traffic accidents in West Devon and can result in injuries that leave the injured parties housebound for weeks or months afterwards. The victims of road traffic accidents in West Devon can call upon Accident Advice Helpline to help secure the compensation they deserve for the injuries they didn’t.
Being involved in a road traffic accident can leave the injured party unable to work or get around as they would prior to the accident. Depending on the nature of their injuries, they may heal within a few days or weeks or could leave the accident victim housebound for a lengthy period of time.
I was unable to work for months after the accident
As the injured party in a road traffic accident, your injuries may have been severe enough to require months in order to heal. Such injuries can lead to lengthy periods of time spent at home, away from the workplace, and away from the opportunity to earn a living.
If you are self-employed then being involved in an accident that was not your fault can have more serious implications. As a self-employed individual, your inability to work will leave you with little chance to earn an income.
Not having an income during the period in which you are recovering, can lead to a period of financial hardship as the bills mount up with no way of paying them. Being self-employed you will have to rely on any savings you may have in order to pay your household bills whilst unable to work. But over time, those savings will whittle away to nothing, leaving you struggling to make ends meet.
For many involved in road traffic accidents that were not their fault, the aftermath of the accident can lead to financial hardship which can lead to emotional issues such as:
- Difficulty communicating with others
