Has an injury affected your finances?
When accidents occur, your first thought should be for your health. Once you’ve assessed your own injuries, you may look around to see if anyone else has been affected. When collisions occur on the road, for example, numerous people may be hurt and you may need to relay this to the emergency services so that they can send additional personnel.
Depending on how badly you’ve been injured, you’ll either want to phone for urgent help or get to a hospital yourself. Whilst you may not think your injuries are too bad, it’s important to have them assessed by a medical professional.
In most cases, people can attend hospitals or walk-in clinics after an accident and see a doctor or nurse within a few hours. This will enable you to determine what injuries you’ve sustained and obtain the treatment you may need.
In the days and weeks following the incident, however, you may begin to notice an impact on your finances. You may lose income because you’re unable to work, for example. Alternatively, you may have to pay for additional costs, such as prescriptions or travel to medical appointments.
Due to this, it can be important to make a claim for compensation after an accident that wasn’t your fault.
