Specialist injury lawyers in Ridgeway and why you should claim compensation for your accident at work
If you have been the faultless victim of an accident whether it is at work or somewhere else, it is more than likely your finances will suffer. Any extra costs and losses that are a direct result of the accident can be reclaimed, providing your keep the receipts as proof of payment. You will also need to prove your loss of income. If you were making a personal injury claim, specialist injury lawyers in Ridgeway would be seeking to recover the costs and losses, which could include:
- Loss of earnings, past and future. You may not be able to return to work at all, and then the earnings you have lost for the remaining years you would have been employed need to be accounted for.
- Travel costs to and from medical appointments if you are unable you drive yourself
- Extra medical expenses such as prescriptions charges, or maybe private medical expenses because the treatments you need are not available on the NHS or from anywhere else free of charge.
- Care costs if you are no longer able to carry out everyday tasks. Even if it is temporary, you may need help with simple things like dressing and undressing yourself.
- Home adaption costs if your injuries are such that you cannot cope in your home as it is. For instance, if the injuries are to your legs, you may now have to use a wheelchair and need ramps fitted.
