If you are injured in a road traffic accident, and those injuries are serious enough to need medical attention, as long as the accident happened no more than three years ago, you are legally entitled to make Buckley car accident claims for compensation.
But there seems to be a problem with victims thinking their injuries are not serious enough, so many of them that are entitled to compensation never make the claim. It is right that if you have a grazed knee, or maybe a bruise on your arm you would not be able to make a claim, but there are injuries that do not seem very serious that turns people lives upside down, and they should be compensated for this
Lets look at a young mum
Just for a few moments put yourself in the position of a young parent maybe with three children all under 5 years of age. If they sustain a broken arm, or something like whiplash in an accident that was not their own fault, life for them can become very difficult indeed while they are recovering.
They could well need help with caring for the children and childcare does not come cheap. They could need help around the home, but worst of all they may not be able to play with or cuddle their children until their injury has healed.
These are not very serious injuries, but they will need help for roughly 8 weeks until they have recovered. It could be that their partner has time off work to help, but then they will lose income, so whatever way it is done, someone else has cost this young family money that they can probably ill afford.
This is just one scenario of how the not so severe injuries can affect people lives, and why the government says the guilty party should pay them compensation, not just for their injuries, but for any expenses or lost income incurred because of the accident.
