When a victim is seriously injured and left with long-term or permanent injuries, they are often unable to do many of the activities that they did prior to their injury. Not only does this include working, but it can also affect the daily activities that the victim was responsible for. For example, the victim had the responsibility of the upkeep of their home, including cleaning the inside and lawn care on the outside. Another example is when the victim is a stay-at-home parent with young children, they are responsible for. If the victim is not able to address these needs themselves because of their injuries and have to hire someone to take care of them, they may be able to pursue financial compensation for these expenses in their personal injury claim.
