It would be almost impossible to go out on the roads today and not see an HGV vehicle. This stands for heavy goods vehicle and it is the type of vehicle that is designed to carry large volumes of goods from one place to another.
While the majority of HGV drivers are experienced and capable of driving to safe and responsible standards, there are occasions where something may go wrong. Since these vehicles are larger than the average car, it is only too easy for someone to be hurt if they are involved in a collision with an HGV.
Has this happened to you?
An accident with an HGV is likely to be more serious than an accident with another car. The size of the HGV means it is far heavier and capable of doing serious damage even when it is not travelling at an excessive speed. As such you could suddenly find yourself in a situation where your car is crushed or otherwise damaged to an extent that you are injured while inside it.
If this has happened to you within the last three years and you received injuries as a result, you do have an opportunity to claim HGV collision compensation. This is paid to those individuals who can prove they were injured through the fault of an HGV driver while operating their vehicle. Needless to say, evidence is the important factor here, but this is something a professional lawyer could help with.
