Car accidents are responsible for thousands of serious injuries as well as a number of fatalities in the UK every year. You could sustain injuries ranging from minor to life changing if you’re involved in a car accident. But what happens if the other driver is responsible? You could make a claim for personal injury compensation by getting in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. If somebody else’s dangerous driving has led to your accident, don’t suffer in silence. You could be compensated for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings. We’ve got over 15 years’ industry experience and an endorsement from our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, so you know you can trust us to handle your claim.
How have you been injured?
Injuries you could sustain in a car accident have the potential to be very serious. Here are just a few examples of the most common car accident injuries:
- Whiplash, or other injuries to the neck and shoulders
- Head injuries such as concussion or brain injuries
- Facial injuries including lacerations or fractures
- Crush injuries, sometimes leading to loss of limbs/amputations
- Broken bones
As you can see, some injuries, such as whiplash, are relatively minor. This doesn’t mean that you’re not entitled to claim personal injury compensation however. Even whiplash could mean taking a few days or weeks off work – and it can be very painful. More serious injuries could mean months off to recover; depending on your job you may even be unable to return to work at all. Claiming personal injury compensation means you’ll be compensated for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings, and we’ll take into account any future earnings if you’re unable to return to work any time soon. Our advisors offer confidential, no-obligation advice, which means you can call us to find out more without having to decide then and there if you’re ready to make a claim.
Three years to make a claim
We recommend claiming as soon as possible after your accident, as there’s a three-year time limit in place for all personal injury claims. Whether you have suffered whiplash and bruises after being rear-ended by another vehicle or have been hit by a speeding driver and suffered a serious head injury, Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation you deserve. Call us today on 0800 689 0500 to find out if you’re eligible to make a claim, or take the 30-second test on our website right now to see how much compensation you could be entitled to.
