    Compensation for a low speed car collision


    Picture a car accident and you usually picture cars travelling at speed, driving too close to the vehicle in front. Whilst many accidents do happen when cars are speeding on motorways or main roads, a low speed car collision also has the potential to cause serious injuries. What do we mean when we talk about a low speed car collision? Here are a few examples:

    • Running into a car stopped at a roundabout or traffic lights
    • Collision with a parked car
    • Colliding with a pedestrian in a car park, for example, whilst reversing
    • Hitting another vehicle whilst pulling into or out of a parking space
    • Colliding with other vehicles during a traffic jam

    If you’ve been injured in a low speed collision, you’re still entitled to claim personal injury compensation if the other driver is to blame. Perhaps another driver was tailgating you during icy weather and collided with your vehicle? Whatever the circumstances of your accident, contact Accident Advice Helpline to see how we can help you claim – we offer a 100% no win, no fee** service.

    Injuries sustained in a collision at low speed

    Just because your car is barely moving (or stationary), doesn’t mean you can’t be injured in a collision. Low speed collisions could cause any of the following injuries:

    • Whiplash
    • Back, neck or shoulder injuries
    • Cuts and bruises
    • Broken bones or hairline fractures
    • Facial injuries

    The jolt caused by a low-speed collision could cause serious, long-term injuries which could lead to chronic pain and necessitate ongoing treatment, such as physiotherapy. You may find yourself unable to work or forced to cut back the hours you spend in the office due to pain, so why should you suffer in silence? We’ve been helping people claim personal injury compensation for minor and serious injuries since 2000, and a quick call to our personal injury advisors will let you find out if you’re eligible to make a claim. You could even take the 30-second test on our website, to see how much you could claim.

    Here to help

    Whilst it’s important to focus on recovering after an accident, you also need to think about the future. If you’re suffering from ongoing pain, who will pay for treatment and therapy in the future? A personal injury settlement could cover these costs as well as compensate you for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings. Don’t be one of the people who suffers without taking action – you could be entitled to receive a substantial settlement. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and find out more about how to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
