CAR ACCIDENT CLAIMS
Car accidents vary a great deal in severity, from a minor bump to a serious head-on collision. They are sometimes known as ‘road traffic accidents’. If you have sustained an injury in a car accident through no fault of your own, you are legally entitled to seek compensation.
CLAIMING COMPENSATION FOLLOWING A CAR ACCIDENT
Not everyone who is involved in a road traffic accident is in a vehicle at the time. Pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists are sometimes also involved in car accidents.
Car accidents happen mainly because of human error. Although there are other circumstances which cause accidents such as obstacles in the road. Being intoxicated with alcohol is another common cause of car accidents which result in car accident claims.
TYPES OF CAR ACCIDENT INJURY
A range of different injuries are sustained in car accidents. However, some of the more common car accident injuries include:
- Broken bones and limbs can leave victims unable to work or carry out everyday tasks
- Head injuries
- Psychological effects of car accidents can also ensue; these are usually in more severe car collisions
MAKING A CAR ACCIDENT CLAIM
By law, all drivers of any type of vehicle should be insured against possible car accident claims. In the event of a car accident claim, the insurers of the responsible party will have to decide what compensation, if any, they will pay. Our team of expert car accident claims solicitors will support you in receiving the compensation you deserve.
Although not crucial, it is prudent to always keep a pen and paper in your car.
