What Should I Do After An Accident?
The moments after an accident are crucial in ensuring that your position is protected. Sometimes people are in shock and can wrongly state to the other driver or to the Police that they were in the wrong, especially if the other driver puts them under pressure. This can effect a claim from the outset and make it very difficult to establish the true circumstances of the collision at a later date. It is therefore essential that you talk to us before talking to anybody else.
Can I make a claim for Loss of Earnings After An Accident?
At McGee O’Kane Solicitors we understand that an accident can often lead to some time off work. We are aware that those involved in accidents can lose out on earnings as a result of the accident.
If you were involved in an accident that was not your fault then you are entitled to make a claim for loss of earnings if the accident has caused you to take time off work. This is something that we will talk to you about when we discuss your accident claim at your Free Consultation.
Not only are you entitled to make a claim for Loss of Earnings, but you are also entitled to make a claim for any other financial loss that you have incurred as a result of the accident.
These types of losses are known as Special Damages. Examples for Special Damages are as follows:
- Medical or Physio Bills
- Loss of Earnings
- Repairs/Replacement of damaged property or vehicle
Is Legal Aid Available?
If your case has to go to Court we can apply for Legal Aid funding to cover the legal costs of your case. There are financial criteria to be eligible for Legal Aid which we will discuss with you. We will prepare the application and lodge it with the Legal Services Agency on your behalf.
