If you haven’t said it yourself, you’ve probably heard people use the following phrase: “If there were just two of me, I could get everything done.”
One of the biggest burdens on the modern household is juggling the work lives and careers of adult family members while handling the daily responsibilities for cooking and cleaning, as well as other home management concerns.
That’s why in many cases, when injury lawyers look into full compensation for an injury victim, they also consider the issue of paying for third-party services that will make sure such important daily work gets done.
It’s hard enough for many breadwinners to hold down a full-time job and help out around the house, but when they become injured in a workplace injury scenario, they often become less able to contribute. Even relatively minor injuries can affect someone’s ability to do all of this important work.
For example, if the injury involves a broken bone or sprain that impacts one’s ability to walk, as well as his or her mobility, that can also impact the victim’s ability to do all the physical work around the house. Of course, for more severe injuries, that problem becomes compounded. For instance, if there’s surgery and recovery time, the person may be confined to a bed, which creates even more of a problem for maintaining the regular contributions to the household.
Injured victims may not be thinking about these very important costs when they go to the table to consider compensation, but injury lawyers do. It’s part of their job to look at the big picture to not only apply third-party responsibility to medical bills, but to make sure that the injured victim is truly and thoroughly cared for as he or she makes that journey toward recovery. That’s why help with house cleaning or home maintenance services will often be among the many types of economic recovery that injury lawyers argue for in court.
Qualified injury lawyers will do more than just “chase a settlement.” From the very first consultation, they will start collecting the required information for the case through fact-finding and legal research. They’ll keep clients informed about the process and their legal options. Injury lawyers help their clients get their voices heard in local courts so that they get what they deserve after a work accident.
