When you get a whiplash injury in Stoke Poges, you might consider making a compensation claim in order to aid your recovery. Fortunately, there are many benefits to making a claim after an accident.
Why claim compensation?
A whiplash injury in Stoke Poges could mean that you temporarily lose the ability to take care of your everyday tasks. Going to work, taking the children to school, socialising with friends, and playing sports may be difficult or impossible for a while.
Of course, whiplash usually clears up within a few weeks, but some cases can drag on for longer – sometimes for several months. This is known as chronic whiplash and it can often cause on-going problems.
Whether your whiplash recovery is speedy or not, there will be some effect on your life – even financially.
How can whiplash affect your finances?
Taking time off work could mean loss of income. Even if you work for an employer with a generous sick-pay policy, your full sick-pay might run out before you recover fully. If you’re self-employed, you could be without any income for some time.
On top of this, if you do need to hire a childminder or home help, they will need to be paid. You will also need to pay for prescriptions and, since you are unable to drive, public transport fares.
These expenses and losses add up – so why not claim compensation?
