Can I Claim For Loss Of Earnings Due To My Injury?
Making a claim for loss of earnings due to an accident can be a confusing and sometimes complicated process. Tinsdills can help you with a loss of earnings claim, making the process more straightforward than it may otherwise have been.
You may have had an accident which has resulted in you missing a period of work, or you may no longer be able to work due to your accident. In both cases, it may be possible for you to claim financial compensation, or damages, for your loss of earnings, and Tinsdills have significant experience in helping people like you make a claim.
You will have to prove what your earnings would have been had you not had the accident. If your case proceeds to court, you will be expected to give evidence about your earnings before the accident as well as the payments you received during your absence from work. Calculating pay loss can be further complicated by the possibility of overtime bonuses or productivity awards which you may have missed out on. The court will expect you to prove that overtime at your place of work was readily and frequently available, and that you had a track record of doing overtime on a regular basis.
If you are self-employed, things can be even more complicated, as your income is likely to vary on a month to month basis, meaning it can be difficult to prove the extent of your loss of earnings accurately. To prove your pre-accident average earnings from your business the court will expect you to produce the trading accounts for your business for three years before the date of the accident as well as your tax and returns submitted to HMRC.
