Have you been injured in a traffic collision that wasn’t your fault? No matter how safe a driver you think you might be, you could be injured by another driver whether you’re in a car, on a motorbike or even a pedestrian crossing the road. But at least Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim traffic collision compensation if you’ve been injured, and because our professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, there are no upfront legal fees to cause you stress.
Traffic collision injuries
You are more likely to sustain serious injuries in a high-speed collision, if you are on a motorbike that is hit by another vehicle or if you’re travelling in a car that is hit by a lorry or HGV. However minor injuries can still cause pain and suffering, and if you have broken your leg or sustained whiplash injuries, you’ll need to take at least a few weeks off work to recover, affecting your earnings.
Serious injuries sustained in a traffic collision could include head injuries (brain injury), crush injuries – if you are trapped inside your vehicle – burns (if your vehicle catches fire), loss of limbs and facial injuries, which could lead to permanent scarring. If somebody you love has been killed in a collision with a dangerous driver who was speeding or driving under the influence, you could make a claim for traffic collision compensation on their behalf. Serious injuries such as a head or brain injury could affect your ability to return to work or live your life to the full – brain injuries can affect behaviour, mood and even motor skills, and many brain injury victims require help with daily personal care tasks such as getting washed, dressing and preparing meals.
Compensation for your future
Personal injury compensation doesn’t just compensate you for what has happened to you – it can also pave the way for a brighter future. Serious injuries which impact your ability to work or your quality of life could attract a more substantial personal injury settlement which takes into account loss of earnings and the cost of medical care or treatment you may need in future. The best way to find out if you’re eligible to make a claim and how much compensation you could receive is to call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 today; it’s free to call.
