There’s a reason why motorways see more accidents than other types of roads – cars on motorways are usually travelling at speed, which could lead to a high-speed car accident. If you’re involved in an accident whilst travelling at 70mph, you’re more likely to suffer from serious injuries than if you are in a collision at 30mph.
Injured in a high-speed car accident? You could be entitled to personal injury compensation, if somebody else was at fault and it has been three years or less since your accident.
Accident Advice Helpline’s team of expert advisers has the knowledge and experience needed to offer confidential, no-obligation advice on all aspects of the personal injury claims process, and it’s free to call us.
Serious head injuries
If you have been seriously injured in a high-speed car accident, you could suffer head injuries or a brain injury which could impact the rest of your life. A brain injury can affect your personality, behaviour and mood, and you may experience mood swings, problems with impulse control and even motor control difficulties.
This might make it impossible to return to work or you may even find you need care in your own home, to do the things you once took for granted.
We believe that the person responsible for the accident should compensate you for your injuries and their effect on your life, and we’ll help you get the compensation you deserve. Our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so you have nothing to lose by making a claim.
What caused your accident?
The majority of accidents at speed are caused by driver error, or it could be that the other driver was speeding in wet or wintry weather conditions. Driving too close to the car in front not only increases the risk of crashing, it can also make visibility difficult, for example, if there are hazards in the road ahead.
It could even be that the other driver was distracted at the wheel, applying makeup or chatting on their mobile phone.
Whatever the reasons behind your accident, you can call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 for advice and to find out if you’re eligible to make a claim. We’ve been endorsed by our patron, Dame Esther Rantzen, so find out about our great customer service for yourself and call our freephone helpline today – our expert personal injury advisers are waiting to take your call.
