Whenever you get in a car, whether as a passenger or as the driver, you don’t think you’ll be involved in an accident. Yet some car journeys do end in this way. It’s rare, thankfully, since most drivers take good care on the roads and pay close attention to what is happening. But if you should be unlucky and your path is crossed by someone who isn’t as careful, you could be involved in an accident even when you did nothing wrong. In this situation, you would be within your rights to make an injury claim for a car accident.
Injuries sustained in a car accident can be very diverse, although common ones include whiplash and soft tissue damage and bruising where the seat belt locks and you are thrown against it. Some people aren’t aware they could claim for minor injuries as well as more serious ones.
How do you go about making an injury claim for a car accident?
If you suspect someone else caused the accident and you were not to blame, you should speak with a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible. While you do have three years from the date the accident occurred to do this, the sooner you make that call the better.
You’ll remember more about the accident in the early stages, and you will also be able to visit your GP or casualty unit to get treatment for your injuries. An official medical record will help prove any claim you wish to make for injuries you suffered in your car accident, whether they were major or minor.
