I’ve been in a car accident in Airdrie – can I claim compensation for my injury?
You can claim personal injury compensation if you have been in an accident in the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault. Driving on incompetently gritted roads or improperly maintained surfaces can lead to action being taken against those responsible.
If a local authority are deemed to have failed in their duty of care, or behaved negligently, then you will be able to claim compensation from them for injuries suffered in a car accident in Airdrie. The types of injuries include and are not limited to the following:
- Internal injuries – this type of serious trauma may be caused by compression on one or more internal organs, including the liver and kidneys, and is often due to a front or side impact on the car.
- Leg and knee injuries – these painful and debilitating injuries can occur when a high-pressure smash causes bruising, crushing, lacerations and tearing to limbs and joints.
- Chest injuries – the forceful jolt of a collision can cause major chest wounds. The diaphragm can be ruptured or the sternum or rib bones can fracture, leading to breathing difficulty and pain.
