Injuries can be caused in any accident that was not your fault. Here are some examples:
- You are in a car crash and you suffer whiplash and broken ribs;
- You trip over a loose paving slab on the high street and break your ankle; and
- You fall off a faulty stepladder at work and fracture your hip.
When a scenario such as any of these occurs, the usual consequences are a trip to hospital followed by a period of rest and recovery. Everyone is different, of course, so the convalescence period varies. Some people heal quickly, whereas others struggle to regain function.
Whatever category you fall into, you will probably notice that the injuries have had an effect not only on your physical activity and mental state, but also on your wallet – and this is where solicitors in Holy Island can help you.
Expenses incurred when you have an injury caused by someone else
The losses you suffer may fall, broadly, into two categories.
The first is expenditure. People who suffer injury often find they need to pay for extra help for things with which they can no longer deal. This can be anything from the washing up to taking the kids to school. Some people pay a home help or childminder to assist them. Don’t forget, either, about the taxi fares (if you can’t drive) and prescription costs.
The other type of loss relates to your income. If you are self-employed, you might be in dire straits because of your injury. If you work for someone, you might fare hardly any better with your sick pay – it all depends on your employer’s policy.
