Many injury victims cannot work for a period of time or lose their employment due to their injuries and recovery time. If you lost income due to an accident, you should speak with a Chicago personal injury lawyer today.
If you’ve suffered a personal injury in an accident, your livelihood can be put at risk. Serious injuries can have long-lasting effects on your ability to continue working as you did prior to your accident. The threats to your livelihood and ability to work, however, don’t only stem from the limitations placed on you by the injury itself. Other factors can come into play following a serious injury that may make it more difficult to continue working at your job as you did prior to the accident.
If you lost income due to an accident injury, discuss your rights with a Chicago personal injury lawyer right away.
The injury itself is often the biggest reason why people find it difficult to return to work. Injuries with long-lasting chronic pain, for example, may make it unreasonable or impossible to continue your line of work following your accident. Depending on your occupation, and the injury sustained, your ability to work can be put at risk from long-lasting effects resulting from your injury. Whether it is chronic pain, disfigurement, or permanent damage your injury has caused, such as paralysis from a spinal injury, an injury can have surprisingly detrimental and long-term impacts on your capacity to work.
This doesn’t necessarily have to involve pain-related symptoms, loss of mobility, or any other injury-related adverse change to your capacity to work. Emotional distress from the accident may also be a factor impairing your ability to return to work. Other psychological impacts from your injuries, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), may inhibit your ability to return to work.
This is why you need a law firm that is dedicated and equipped to help you receive full compensation for all the adverse impacts your injury has caused. Hiring a law firm that will fight to make sure you receive damages for the long-lasting effects of your injury and its impact on your ability to work is essential.
Furthermore, incidental issues arising from your accident affecting your personal or family life or your job security also may play a role in inhibiting your return to work. For example, if the medical bills and costs of your injury strained you to the point of losing your home or vehicle, returning to work may not be realistic or feasible after you’ve recovered from your injuries. You could lack the transportation necessary to get there or the home life stability to hold the job.
Finally, if your injury is severe and recuperation is taking a long time, an employer may wish to move on from you in favor of somebody who can work right then and there. Your very job security may be put at risk and can result in the loss of your job. For all these reasons, you need a law firm that is dedicated to ensuring all compensation for these potential long-term possibilities is obtained when handling your personal injury case.
