It is not only drivers who are able to claim compensation for a road traffic accident because passengers, cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians are also able to make a claim. One of the most common types of compensation claim following a road traffic accident is for whiplash. Whiplash is a type of neck injury that is caused by the sudden movement of the head. An accident solicitor in North Tawton or another legal representative will assist you to get the compensation that you are entitled to.
Claiming compensation for a car accident
It can be very daunting when it comes to claiming compensation however, it is worth remembering that all drivers should be correctly insured. It is not the actual driver who pays the compensation as it is paid by the insurance company on behalf of the driver. In addition to getting compensation for the pain that you have endured you will also be compensated for the inconvenience that has been caused. It is also possible to get compensation to cover any money that has been lost as a result of the accident, for example wages that you have lost due to not being able to work whilst recovering from the injuries that you sustained.
