Hey guys I need your help! It’s in regards with my mother who was involved in a very serious accident recently. She was walking as a pedestrian and then at a crossing got run over by a car. The car went through a red light over 60 mph.
She was rushed to Queens medical centre in Nottingham. She sustained multiple fractures and had multiple operations. Also was in a induced coma. Moving on she is doing a lot better.
My mother has worked all her life over 30 years. Injuries are improving but she currently struggles with a lot of pain she has multiple fractures in the spine. Her skin grafting also hurts on her foot. And fractures in her hand. She’s doing a lot better now but obviously does not feel fit enough to work.
My question is is she eligible to benefit then which one? because she can move around but not for long due to severe pain.
Also my mother is a joint homeowner, owns 2 homes one being on rent. The other she lives in with a mortgage with my father. To Add to that my father is on ESa support group Contribution based due to his mental health.
Savings are around £20,000
Currently is on receipt of sick pay which obviously ends at 28 weeks so I am just thinking ahead.
Would she be eligible for anything with these circumstances?
Thanks in advance.
