    Accident injury claim in Shotton

    You can claim for lesser injuries

    Do you need to make an accident injury claim in Shotton? When you think of the various injuries which may be sustained during an accident, it’s often the larger injuries such as broken bones, concussion or whiplash which you tend to focus on.

    Lesser injuries such as bruising can be just as painful, and potentially serious, but are often not considered as being major.

    Whatever the cause of your injuries and however serious they may be, if the accident which caused them was not your fault, you have the right to make an accident injury claim in Shotton.


    A bruise is also known as a contusion and one may form because of an injury to the soft tissue. The injury causes the small veins and capillaries which are found just underneath the skin to break, and red blood cells to leak out.

    Because the cells then collect by the skin, they create the visual bruise which is often black, blue, purple or red in colour.

    As bruises fade, they tend to turn an orange or yellow colour. Eventually they should disappear altogether.

    Some people tend to bruise far more easily than others. Therefore, whilst a minor knock may cause a major bruise in one person, it won’t show at all in another. Although bruising is rarely serious, they can be extremely painful. In addition, if a bruise fails to fade after two weeks, medical attention should be sought.

    Making an Accident Injury Claim in Shotton

    Although bruising might not be considered a serious injury, that doesn’t lessen the discomfort it may cause. Depending on the site of the bruise, it could be painful and limit your range of movement. Therefore, if the accident which led to the injury was not your fault, there is no reason you should be left to suffer.
