Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we are asked many questions regarding compensation, injuries, and accidents. Whatever your questions are, whether they are about a St Edmundsbury car accident, an accident at work, or any other type of incident, our lawyers are here to answer any queries that you may have.
One of the things that bothers many victims of a St Edmundsbury car accident is how they will cope financially until they have recovered, if they ever do.
How Accident Advice Helpline can help after a St Edmundsbury car accident
The law in the UK says that if you are injured because of the fault of someone else, you are entitled to claim compensation from whoever was responsible. This is not just for the pain and suffering they have caused you to endure, but also for any extra expenses, such as loss of income, that arise when you have been injured in an accident.
- A loss of a wage can have a dire effect on the family’s finances, as generally we all live to our means. If that means is suddenly reduced, the pressure from this, on top of the stress from an accident, can slow the recovery process for many victims.
- If you live alone and cannot look after yourself while recovering, you may need carers to come in each day, or someone to clean your home. This could be a temporary situation or permanent, but either way it has to be paid for somehow.
- It could be that treatment you need to aid your recovery is not available on the NHS, or there is a very long waiting list. In these circumstances, the costs of private treatment could potentially be recoverable.
- What if the injuries are to your legs, and you become confined to a wheelchair? Your home may need adapting to make it suitable, or that might not be possible and you may have to find another home.
These are just a few suggestions of how extra expenses and losses could arise after an accident that was not your fault, and you should not be out of pocket because of them.
Accident Advice Helpline will make sure that every area of your accident and injuries are examined, to ensure that you get the maximum compensation available for your circumstances, including any changes to your life that you have to make to cope.
