What happens after you have been in a rear-end collision?
Rear-end collisions occur when one vehicle is shunted from behind by another. More often than not, the car in front is stationery, which can cause a blunt impact to occur, while in others it may be already moving. Even rear-end collisions at slow speeds can lead to injuries; in fact, studies show that the majority of cases of whiplash were brought on as a result of a rear-end shunt at slow speed.
These sorts of accidents can lead to a number of other injuries as well, such as head traumas, broken bones, sprains and strains. If you were in the vehicle in front, you may have suffered a number of painful injuries, and if you were not at fault, you could seek financial compensation for them. Whether you were the driver or the passenger, if you were not at fault for the accident, you could stand to receive a substantial sum in compensation with help from Accident Advice Helpline.

How do you know if you can make a claim?
Many people are unaware of their legal right surrounding compensation, which means they miss out on what could have been a substantial settlement. In order to make a claim, your accident must have taken place within the past three years, and you should be able to demonstrate that you were not at fault for the accident.
This can be through the submission of videos or images, along with police reports and witness statements. The more you can provide to your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor, the better the chances of a settlement being reached.
