There are hundreds of road accidents in the UK every day. Many are minor collisions but unfortunately some have more serious consequences for those involved.
The injuries sustained can be traumatic, disabling or even life-changing, which can be made worse when the accident wasn’t your fault.
When you are injured, medical treatment and recovery time may mean you lose income through time off work. You may also find yourself reliant on others for simple daily tasks. Of course financial compensation won’t make your injuries disappear but it could help relieve some of the pressure and help your recovery, ensuring that your quality of life is maintained.
Most road traffic accidents involve a collision between two or more cars or motorcycles. In these cases the drivers or passengers often pursue personal injury claims. Passenger personal injury claims can also occur if you suffer injuries whilst in a bus or other vehicle, and you would be eligible for compensation, whichever driver was at fault.
Occasionally a pedestrian could be injured by a dangerous or drunk driver, or an injury could be sustained while crossing the road and so would be able to make a personal injury claim.
Following a road traffic accident your health is always your first priority. Therefore it’s vital that you seek immediate medical attention.
You should also contact a personal injury solicitor to discuss your individual situation and let you know if you have a personal injury claim and if so, how much compensation you could expect to receive.
