What happens if I am unable to work because of a whiplash injury in Haverhill?
If you have been the victim of a whiplash injury in Haverhill you are likely to be feeling stressed and worried. No matter how minor your injuries may be, you will be advised to spend some time off work whilst you concentrate no getting better. If you have had a severe whiplash injury there is no doubt that you will need a significant amount of time to get better before your normal daily routine resumes.
This may be fine for those that get sick pay. They can be confident that they can take the time off work, focus on recovering from the whiplash injury in Haverhill whilst they are still being paid their normal wage. Nonetheless, what about those people who do not get sick pay? This is not a perk that is associated with all jobs. Moreover, those that are self-employed or have their own business will also struggle if they are unable to work because of a whiplash injury.
However, luckily this is not something you should merely accept. It is not all doom and gloom. You can claim for this loss of income as a special expense when you make a personal injury claim for the whiplash injury in Haverhill you have suffered.
There are two types of compensation when making any type of personal injury claim. First you have the general damages, this relates to the money you are paid to compensate you for your suffering. Secondly you have special damages. These are out of pocket expenses you have incurred because of the injury. Loss of income is a prime example of one of these.
