Recovering Loss Of Earnings In Medical Compensation Claims
After a personal injury or medical ailment which may be the result of medical negligence, there is often a reduction in income. When making a successful medical compensation claim, our medical compensation solicitors can help recover any loss of earnings, both current and future.
This could be in the form of loss of shift allowance, overtime, bonus payments or sickness pay. In a worst case scenario the claimant may not be able to return to job he/she was working in before the accident or medical neglect, or even have become medically unable to undertake any type of work at all.
This may also affect a personal pension, as pension allotments may even be placed in jeopardy due to reduced working hours.
In such cases, a ‘loss of earnings’ has occurred which has placed significant financial strain on the individual and possibly the family.
If any reduction in income has resulted such as in the cases above, then our medical compensation solicitors would look to include this in the claim as ‘special damages.
In a serious injury interim payment may be sought for by the other side to cover short-term financial regularities such as mortgage payments, bills, other household expenses and any medical care and treatment costs. Learn more about ‘Interim Payments’.
