Dealing with financial issues after a whiplash injury

If you have been in an accident and sustained a serious whiplash injury in Clarkston or any other type of injury, it may take some time for you to be recovered enough to go back to work.

On top of this, a road accident is likely to have caused damage to your car and the car of the other driver which you may be eligible to pay for, which can put real financial strain on you in the months following your accident.

The worst thing about dealing with financial issues following a road accident and whiplash injury in Clarkston is that you can feel helpless and unable to do anything to solve the situation, leading to stress and anxiety which can last for a long time. Here are some ways in which you can help yourself financially after your accident.

Ask your employer about sickness pay

As long as you have a medical certificate from your doctor which proves that you have an injury which you need time off of work to recover from, your employer may well be in a position to provide you with full pay for a time after your accident.

Look through your contract to find out whether or not there is any sickness pay that you can claim, and if you are not sure then your employer should be able to give you this information. You may have to accept a reduced rate of pay, but it will be something.

Claim compensation for your whiplash injury in Clarkston

If the accident which caused your whiplash injury in Clarkston was not your fault, consider claiming compensation back for your injuries, from the person who was at fault.

The easiest way to do this, which causes you the least stress and allows you to get the full balance of what is owed to you, is to call Accident Advice Helpline on: 0800 689 0500 and speak to the team about making a claim.

The team can talk you through whether or not you have a good case for compensation and, if you do, will pass you over to an experienced in house injury lawyer who will work on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve.

Look into sickness benefit

If your employer cannot provide you with sick pay for the entire duration of your time off of work, or you have to leave your job as the result of your injuries, you should be able to claim sickness benefit, or Employment and Support Allowance, from the government.

This will be calculated according to the tax you have paid in the past, so you are not taking anything which isn’t owed to you, and it can help you to cover your bills and household outgoings whilst you are too ill to work.
