    How to claim lorry crash injury compensation


    Accidents happen on our roads every single day. While the majority of journeys are completed safely, and do not result in any problems or issues of any kind, some result in an accident taking place. This could range from a minor bump in a car park to a major accident that results in someone being seriously injured.

    The nature and outcome of an accident can depend on many factors. However, when a large vehicle is involved, such as a lorry, it can increase the chances of someone else being more seriously hurt. This is when lorry crash injury compensation might stand a higher chance of being paid if someone has been injured through no fault of their own. However, even in this instance the injured party must be able to prove another person was negligent in what they did (or didn’t) do.

    Examples of situations where lorry crash injury compensation could be paid

    If you are walking along a pavement and a lorry is speeding along the road towards you and goes out of control, hitting you in the process, you might well suffer severe injuries. Even if you are in a car and a lorry hits you, you may not escape injury. The size and weight of a lorry makes it potentially quite dangerous if something goes wrong.

    When you are injured and someone else is found to be at fault, you may be in a good position to make lorry crash injury compensation. The amount you may potentially be awarded could depend on the severity of your injuries and whether they have any permanent effect. For example amputation would likely incur a greater payment than if you broke a limb and it did eventually heal.

    Knowing where you stand legally

    The aftermath of any accident can be an emotional and stressful time. However, if you seek out some legal advice regarding your position and whether or not compensation could be due to you, this could result in having some support just when you need it most.
