Injury: Self-employed persons
If the victim is a self-employed person, this is an added complication. The income is gone, the company may cease to exist. And thereby the raison d’être of its personnel! Often, action must be taken immediately.
It is not as easy to assess the damages suffered by a self-employed person as it is in the case of an employee. The annual figures can be used for the initial calculations. However, to determine the actual damages, some adjustments are often required, based, for instance, on a financial analysis of the company.
- A self-employed taxi driver becomes disabled for work due to a traffic accident for which another party is to be held liable. His taxi company is no longer viable after this accident and has to be terminated. This loss of income from work can be recovered from the liable party. We can help you analyse the annual figures in order to determine the financial damages resulting from the disablement. We can also advise you on issues regarding re-entry of the labour market.
- A couple runs a doctor’s office together. The woman becomes disabled for work and can no longer continue her work as GP. We can advise you on how damages can be recovered by the woman, her husband who is still working, and the partnership.
- The managing director/major shareholder of a company becomes disabled for work and can no longer run his company. Replacement is hired, as a consequence of which the profits go down. Furthermore, the managing director’s wages might have to be cut back. We can advise you on the possibilities for compensation.
