Road accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and if you’re unlucky enough to be involved in a collision whilst driving to work or picking up the kids, you (or they) could be seriously injured.
Accidents are statistically more likely to happen at junctions than on straight stretches of road, and whilst you may find you’re driving more slowly when you approach a junction, this doesn’t necessarily apply to oncoming traffic.
Even an accident at slow speeds could lead to neck and shoulder injuries that could leave you suffering and considering claiming cross junction accident compensation. You shouldn’t have to suffer in silence when Accident Advice Helpline’s sole purpose is to help you get the compensation you deserve after an accident that was somebody else’s fault.
How did your accident happen?
Perhaps you were crossing a junction when an oncoming lorry hit your vehicle? Or maybe you were the oncoming car, driving along a main road when another vehicle pulled out unexpectedly, causing a collision. Whatever has happened, if the other driver is at fault, claiming cross junction accident compensation is an option that’s available to you.
You might have been lucky enough to escape with cuts, bruises or whiplash but you could have sustained more serious injuries such as broken bones, crush injuries or head injuries, all of which have the potential to be life-changing.
If you or a member of your family has sustained a severe head injury, it might be impossible to return to work or school, and brain injuries can affect cognition, behaviour and even your motor skills, making it difficult to remain independent. Paying for care and medical treatment can take its toll on your finances, which is why making a claim for personal injury compensation is often the lifeline that people need after being involved in a road traffic accident.
Establishing who’s to blame
It can be tough working out who’s at fault for your accident – you might be the type of person who automatically feels the need to take responsibility, or equally you could blame the other person without assessing the evidence. That’s why Accident Advice Helpline is here.
We’ve got 15 years’ industry experience and we’ll assess who is at fault for your accident – if it’s the other party, you could have a viable personal injury claim. Our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so call us today on 0800 689 0500 – what do you have to lose?
