According to various statistics, the number of serious car accidents around Bangor, and the rest of the country, is falling. So why are the number of personal injury claims rising? This article will look at what you should consider when you’ve been hurt in an accident and why it’s always worthwhile getting as much information as possible.
The sight of personal injury claims figures on the rise has caused plenty of disquiet in some quarters, with people suggesting it could lead to a rise in motor insurance. This will be what you’re claiming against if you mount a claim, so insurers may seek to guard against this by adjusting their policies accordingly.
This argument is strengthened by the fact that the largest increase in claims has been for whiplash injuries, which leads some to suggest people are claiming for injuries which are not that severe.
The truth is very different. What’s happened is that people are getting more information. If you’ve got whiplash after an accident, nobody is claiming you should be paid millions in compensation, but there is restitution to be paid nevertheless. It might not be a permanent injury, but it can inflict a serious impact on your life until you’ve got over it.
For example, if you’re forced off work even for a short time these days, you could find yourself missing out on significant amounts of income. If this happens, then you naturally do not want to be left out of pocket.
