Financial Advice for Personal Injury or Illness

Sometimes, life throws unexpected challenges in your way.

These might be a change in your professional circumstances or a sudden personal injury or illness.

Experiencing a serious personal injury is something that can make it seem like all of the plans you had made are now on permanent hold. In fact, in our experience, we’ve found that those who have suffered a personal injury may be struggling with:

  • Balancing managing their financial world with their personal recovery
  • Knowing the options that are available to them in terms of compensation
  • Not having the right professionals to go to for advice on what their next steps should be
  • Worrying about how a drop in income will affect themselves or their families
  • Not having clarity on how their injury will affect their financial goals
  • Figuring out a path forward that is suited to their particular circumstances and financial goals

At My Wealth Solutions, we understand that when you’re recovering from a serious personal injury, the last thing you need to be doing is spending all your energy on figuring out how to sort out your financial world.

Whether your injury has caused you to be unable to work your current job, resulted in a reduction of work hours or prompted you to change your career path, it can be easy to feel like your financial world is out-of-control with the changes you may be experiencing.

You may have suffered an accident that has prevented you from performing your normal work duties or been recently diagnosed with a mental health condition that requires a complete lifestyle to effectively manage. Or you may have been diagnosed with an ongoing long-term illness that has stopped you from pursuing your everyday activities.

However your life has been interrupted by your personal injury or illness, you don’t have to tackle this challenge alone.

We’re here to help.

At times of intense stress and uncertainty, it’s never been more important than to have the right team of financial professionals at your side to guide you and provide you with support as you tackle what life has thrown your way.

My Wealth Solutions is that team. In fact, we specialise in helping those who have suffered a personal injury assess their new financial circumstances and design a way for them to get back on track to achieving financial success and security.

We also understand how important it is for you to focus all your energy on recovering from your injury, which is why we’re dedicated to supporting you on this journey in any way we can, from assisting you in any insurance claims you’re able to make to restructuring your budget and reassessing your cash flow to connecting you with the right lawyer to pursue any compensation claims.

After all, our aim is simple: to empower you to achieve financial success and security by providing you with the tools and knowledge you need to make smart financial decisions – no matter your particular financial circumstances.

Dealing with the aftermath of a personal injury isn’t something you have to face on your own.

Common Challenges

After suffering a serious personal injury, it can be hard to know what your next steps should be.

Depending on your particular financial circumstances prior to your injury, there could be a number of aspects of your financial world that require your attention, as well as many pathways moving forward.

However, in our experience previously helping those who have suffered a personal injury, we’ve found a few common challenges include:

  • Becoming overwhelmed by everything that needs addressing and suffering decision fatigue as a result
  • Being left in financial limbo as you deal with insurance companies or your lawyer if making a compensation claim
  • Not adjusting your budget and cash flow expectations if your injury has caused you to not be able to work
  • Struggling to keep up with any unexpected medical expenses while also providing for your family
  • Not knowing where to start when rethinking your financial goals and the path you’d like to take to get there
  • Worrying about how to prepare financially for your family if something worse were to happen to you
  • Feeling overwhelmed by the sheer amount of financial decisions that demand your attention

While at first a personal injury may make you feel like you’re being forced to start from scratch as your previous financial plans and goals are thrown into disarray, the reality doesn’t have to be as harsh.

With the right expert guidance and support only a phone call or email away, you’ll never have to worry about whether your financial world is being taken care of in a way that prioritises the well-being of you and your family.

In other words, with the My Wealth Solutions team by your side you won’t have to spend another minute worrying about your financial world and can instead focus on recovering from your injury.

Having come from a planner where we were very disappointed, it has been a refreshing change dealing with Ben & the team at MWS. They are responsive, helpful, go above and beyond to answer questions and most importantly we have found it easy to understand the finance speak and to actually understand what our money is doing. Thanks for a great experience so far!

Excellent service! My girlfriend and I were looking for ways to maximise returns to make to most out of our money. We needed someone with more knowledge in the financial sector than ourselves who we could bounce ideas off and come up with strategies that we hadn’t thought of. Ben and the team at My Wealth Solutions have done exactly that. They have been available for us to ask questions and have been patient with their explanations making sure we understand.
