Can I Claim for Loss of Earnings Following an Injury in Scotland?

Depending on the seriousness of your personal injury, you may have had to take time off work in order to recover or to receive medical treatment. Where your injuries are very severe, you may even be unable to return to work, or be unable to continue in the role you were in before you sustained your injury. It may be that you missed out on working overtime, which you usually would have.

Missing out on earnings as a result of a personal injury can put you in a damaging position, meaning you struggle with money and perhaps incur debt. When the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, it is only fair that you should be able to claim compensation for these financial losses. At Jones, Whyte, we will help you claim for what is known as “solatium” (compensation for your pain and suffering), as well as for every other loss arising from your injury. The different elements you can claim for will depend on your situation, so please get in touch today to discuss your circumstances with our professional and approachable solicitors.

The experienced personal injury solicitors at Jones Whyte can help you claim for earnings you have missed out on as a result of your personal injury, and which you might miss out on in the future because of the effect of your injury. We can also help you if you are self-employed. Our dedicated solicitors will obtain details of your earnings prior to the accident, and what they were expected to be in the future, in order to calculate how much to claim.
