Being injured in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault could mean taking time off work or even spending time in hospital for medical treatment. You may even have lost a loved one in a road traffic accident that was caused by a dangerous driver, or perhaps you’ve been seriously injured whilst driving a company vehicle for work purposes. Claiming road traffic accident compensation is an option that’s available to you if somebody else is to blame for your accident, whether it was caused by an unsafe work vehicle or another driver. Accident Advice Helpline can help you make a 100% no win, no fee claim that could help you sort out your finances whilst you recover from your injuries.
Road traffic accident injuries
Most road traffic accidents are the result of driver error – whether that’s a drunk or speeding driver or somebody who just isn’t paying attention to the road and other vehicles. If you’ve been involved in a collision, you may be suffering from some of the following injuries:
- Cuts and bruises
- Facial injuries such as a fractured cheekbone, broken nose or eye injuries
- Broken bones
- Back, neck or shoulder injuries
- Crush injuries – for example if you are trapped in your vehicle
- Burns, if your vehicle catches fire
- Injuries to internal organs
- Head injuries such as concussion or a brain injury
It might be that you have been rear-ended by another driver whilst stopped at traffic lights, suffering whiplash and needing a few weeks off work to recover. Or perhaps you have sustained a life-changing injury in a collision with a drunk driver on the motorway and now require 24/7 care at home. Whatever has happened, a personal injury settlement could make life a little easier and you deserve to receive road traffic accident compensation if somebody else is to blame.
