Being injured in a car accident is no laughing matter and every year in the UK, thousands of people suffer minor and serious injuries in road traffic accidents. Even if you are the most careful driver in the world, you could still be injured by somebody else driving dangerously – for example another driver using their mobile phone at the wheel or speeding in wet or icy weather. If you have suffered a knee injury caused by a car accident then help is at hand.
You may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation if somebody else caused your car accident, and Accident Advice Helpline could help you. We’ve been helping people for over 16 years and you could be next to receive personal injury compensation.
How has your knee injury caused by a car accident affected your life?
As well as assessing the severity of your knee injury caused by a car accident, we want to know how it has affected your life. For example:
- Are you unable to go to work?
- Are you unable to participate in your normal activities such as playing sports?
- Have you needed surgery or other medical treatment?
- Have you spent money on treatment or travelling to medical appointments?
- Have your wages been affected?
These are all things we take into consideration when you make a claim for personal injury compensation and they can all affect the amount of compensation you could receive. For example, if you have fractured your kneecap and you need surgery and several weeks or months off work, you could be compensated for your loss of earnings during that time, as well as for the cost of travel to medical appointments for treatment.
How complex is the claims process?
The claims process with Accident Advice Helpline is fairly simple and we will be able to tell you if you have a viable claim when you get in touch with us. We recommend getting in touch with us as soon as possible after your road traffic accident, as there is a three-year time limit in place to claim compensation. You can call us on 0800 689 0500 (or call 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to get advice from our expert advisors and ask any questions you have about what happens next.
Bear in mind that our professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis, so you don’t need to worry about how you will afford expensive legal fees if you are already struggling financially after your accident.
