No one would ever want to be caught up in a road accident. Thankfully most accidents are fairly minor and don’t involve any injuries at all. However there will always be accidents that happen that are more serious where one or more people may receive injuries as a result of what has occurred.
Being involved in a collision with a lorry can be more serious because of the size of the lorry involved. These are large vehicles and if one is involved in an accident with a car, the car is more likely to suffer more damage. Depending on the speeds involved this could also mean the passengers and driver are hurt in the collision.
What kinds of injuries might be suffered?
A road accident of any kind could potentially leave the driver and any passengers suffering from some injuries. If they are wearing seatbelts there is a good chance that seatbelt bruising will occur. This is very painful and can leave some horrendous bruising behind. Other injuries that might happen could include crush injuries and cuts from glass and parts of the car if there is a significant impact.
Lorry collision compensation can be granted to those people who suffer injuries and were not at fault for causing the accident. If the lorry driver is found to be at fault, there is a good case to argue to receive lorry collision compensation. This is something that is easier to confirm if you have a lawyer handling your case, as they will have been there before and assisted other people with similar claims.
