If you have been injured in a personal injury accident are no longer able to work the job you once did, you might be facing serious financial hardship. The good news is that there are some ways to make money that might work for you – and they do not require physical labor. Check out these options, but if you need to recover compensation for an accident that was someone else’s fault, contact Law Offices of Patrick S. Aguirre at 800-572-1252 for a free legal consultation.
Rent Out a Room You Are Not Using
Is there a room in your home that you do not use on a daily basis? You could rent it out on Airbnb or a similar website. You have total control over when it will be rented, so you could choose only to rent it on weekends or only on weekdays. It might be strange to have people coming into and out of your home, but it can bring in a decent income. You could even hire a service to handle cleaning between rentals so you do not have to risk additional injury.
If you have things of value that you are not using, then it might make sense to sell them online. Even if you do not have anything personally, you could make a full-time income buying and then selling items on a variety of online sites. You can even check your local second-hand stores to find affordable items that you can then sell for more than you bought them for.
If you make anything, such as paintings, blankets, or any other type of craft, then you could sell that online too. There are many options to sell items online – just think about what you can offer or what you can make, and then do a search for it. You are likely to find a way to monetize your hobby.
Become a Consultant
If you were an expert in your field, you might be able to sell that knowledge by working as a consultant. For example, a person who worked on a construction site might not be able to work onsite while they are recovering, but they might be able to offer consultation services to those who are still working. For example, if the site is large and there are many levels of management, you could be the go-to to call when staff had a question.
Make Sure You Are Getting the Compensation You Deserve
Of course, these are all short-term options that are not likely to turn into new careers. If you have been injured and are not going to be able to continue with your line of work, then you should be compensated not only for your medical bills but for the cost of training in a new job.
