Have you been injured whilst using the roads?
When people think of car accidents, they often assume that drivers and passengers are most affected. However, any type of road user can be affected by road traffic accidents and cyclists account for a large number of casualties.
Although many areas now have cycle lanes, there are still far too many accidents occurring on the roads. As many drivers fail to see motorcyclists and cyclists, they collide with them and this can cause people to sustain very serious injuries. Unfortunately, these types of accidents often result in fatalities as well.
Claiming for a car accident
If you’ve been injured whilst on the roads, you may want to start claiming for a car accident straight away. Although it may take you some time to recover from your injuries, you can start your legal action as soon as you’ve received medical treatment.
In fact, many people find it easier to make a claim soon after the accident has occurred as the details are still fresh in their minds.
Will you need to go to court to make a claim?
Understandably, you may not feel up to attending court hearings if you’re still recovering from your injuries and this could be preventing you from seeking legal help. However, most of our claimants don’t have to go to court at all so you should still consider getting your claim underway.
Although some claimants do need to attend a medical assessment when making a claim, we aim to assist claimants over the phone whenever we can so you won’t have to attend lots of meetings or hearings in order to obtain compensation for your injury.
How much compensation could you obtain?
When claiming for a car accident, it’s useful to have an idea of how much your claim could be worth. Although this often depends on the type of injuries you’re suffering from, you could be surprised at how much compensation you could be awarded.
