You can make Basingstoke and Deane personal injury claims if you have had an accident which you believe to be the fault of another person, even if you haven’t suffered life changing injuries. Many people avoid making injury claims because they believe that their injuries aren’t serious enough to warrant making a claim. However, if you have suffered any accident which was the fault of another person and been injured because of it, you can still make a claim. Here are some examples of the types of injuries that you can make claims for, which might not seem serious enough at first.
Whiplash is one of the most common types of injury for people to make compensation claims for. Although whiplash isn’t life threatening or life changing, it is still a serious enough injury to make you eligible for compensation as it is painful and the effects of the injury can hang around for a long time. You can make claims for varying levels of whiplash injury, as long as your doctor is able to confirm that you have sustained this.
Sprains and small fractures
Again, these injuries are unlikely to cause you long term effects and you shouldn’t really have to take any time off work, but if you have sustained them in an accident which was caused by the negligence of another person then you should still be able to make a claim for compensation. Make sure that you get a medical assessment which proves that you have sustained these injuries in the first place, though. Even if you don’t have serious physical injuries, the trauma from an accident can hang around for months or even years after the fact. If your doctor has treated you for trauma or any other emotional problem following your accident, you should be able to make a claim for it.
