If you’ve ever been in a road accident of any kind, you will be aware of how much of a shock it can be. You typically have a split-second to try and react to avert disaster, and often there is no time at all to do anything about it. If someone else is the guilty party for causing the accident to occur, it can change your life in a second and give you a major fright.
While colliding with anything or anyone on the road is going to be a shock for you, colliding with a vehicle larger than yours can be particularly frightening. The larger vehicle can often have the potential to cause more damage than your own vehicle, which means you could incur some significant injuries in that split second.
Is this type of situation likely to lead to van collision compensation?
A collision with a van can mean your vehicle is significantly damaged. While your insurance will deal with the damage to your vehicle, and determine whether the car is a write-off, there is also the matter of any physical injuries you may be suffering from. This could mean you are entitled to van collision compensation if the collision led to you suffering from assorted injuries of any severity.
The important thing to remember here is that you would not have suffered from those injuries if the van driver had not crashed into you. Hopefully the van driver will admit fault, but if they do not admit fault your case for compensation can be argued if your lawyer believes you have an excellent chance of winning.
