Whiplash costs and expenses can mount up
If you’ve been unfortunate enough to be injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you need help. Accidents are expensive and whiplash costs and expenses can mount up. The last thing you need to add to your trauma are money worries.
Your main focus must be your health and recovery from a painful injury such as whiplash. But there’s no getting away from the fact that accidents come with a lot of out of pocket expenses.
What are whiplash costs and expenses?
Most victims suffering a whiplash will need to take some time off work. Whiplash usually affects the movement of your head and neck making most types of work very difficult. You may be entitled to sick pay while you’re off work but for many people this isn’t the case.
For example, if you’re self employed, loss of earnings might be a big issue. Not everyone is entitled to pay while they’re not at work including agency staff. Loss of earnings may affect your ability to pay your way or support your family.
Then there are the out of pocket expenses that keep mounting. You won’t be able to drive your car with a whiplash injury. Taxis and train fares are expensive. Perhaps you’ll need help to look after yourself or your family. A severe whiplash can leave you unable to perform the simplest of tasks. You might need to pay someone to clean your home or do your shopping. Domestic help isn’t cheap these days.
