What Are Possible Financial Effects Of A Serious Injury?

Start your claim

Serious injuries can have a truly negative impact on your finances. After experiencing a serious injury as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, you will require prolonged treatments and medical visits, which may stop you from attending work, and some conditions may prevent you from attending work altogether. You may find that you are unable to care for your children or other dependents such as elderly parents in the same capacity, so you may need to arrange an alternative form of care, such as sending small children to nursery during the day. Some individuals may require private medical care or may decide on private medical care to ensure that they are provided with the best care at a good time and in the best way. Private medical care, even if necessary, can be incredibly costly for the individual, which may pose a detrimental financial burden on you and your loved ones.

At Belmont Solicitors, we are here to support you in the aftermath of a serious injury and to ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve. This compensation is designed to help you to cope with the financial impacts that may come as a result of your injuries. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality work for our clients, bringing you that much closer to the help you need and getting you the best compensation results.

It is very likely that a serious or catastrophic injury will result in you needing an extended period of leave from your place of work. In Scotland, you are entitled to Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) for up to 28 weeks. After that you may be entitled to apply for Employment Support Allowance or Universal Credit. However, Statutory Sick Pay is only £109.40 per week, which for most of us would not be sufficient to support our necessary payments such as rent, mortgage and essentials – especially if you have children to support too. When you engage Belmont Solicitors to help with your compensation case, we will also seek compensation for your lost earnings.

Private healthcare can be very costly, very quickly. Although you may be treated largely by the NHS, you may still require private treatment for physiotherapy and psychotherapy to help you to cope with the long term ramifications of your injuries. We will work with you to get you the maximum amount of potential compensation so that you aren’t put in the position of choosing between your health and your financial security.

Let Belmont Solicitors support you after your accident. We are experts in everything to do with personal injury cases, so you can be confident that we are going to help get your life back on track.

    • My accident happened right before covid, so there were loads of delays and even a hand over in solicitors. With all the interferences, Belmont never let me down. They stayed in touch and stayed very honest throughout the whole thing.

They have been excellent throughout making sure I am aware of everything that’s been going on and providing me with all the information I need to make informed decisions. The outcome has been fantastic and I have been treated with integrity and care throughout. I would highly recommend them to anybody.

    • The team at Belmont has been great. They went through the information with me as often as I needed to understand all the legal bits and feel comfortable proceeding. I was given an update as soon as it was available, which meant I didn’t have to constantly call - which in my experience is not always the case with solicitors. Overall very happy with the service received.

    • Good service. Kept me informed about my personal injury claim - which took about a year to settle, which was due to the other party in the accident's insurer going into liquidation, but they kept at it and eventually succeded in getting the payment. Would definately recommend.
