About seat belt car accident claims
It is important to wear a seat belt at all times, as they can dramatically reduce the injuries sustained in a car accident, and of course, save lives.
If you have been injured in an accident while not wearing your seat belt, the injuries you may sustain can be incredibly serious. Even when air bags are deployed, a number of serious injuries such as whiplash, broken bones, sprains, lacerations, punctured lungs and injuries affected the skull and brain can still occur.
You may feel that if you have been in an accident without wearing your seat belt that the chances of receiving compensation for these injuries are slim – but this is not necessarily the case. Speak to an Accident Advice Helpline adviser about your case, and find out exactly where you stand when it comes to seat belt-related car accident claims in Deganwy.

You may be able to make a compensation claim if you have been in an accident without a seat belt.
The law stipulates that if you have been injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another party, you have a right to claim compensation. Regardless of whether or not you were wearing a seat belt, if the accident was not your fault, you should not be left to suffer the consequences without compensation.
At most, the fact that you were not wearing a seat belt at the time of a collision can result in you being awarded less money then you would have been, but it is unlikely the deduction will be any more than 25 per cent. If you have questions about your specific case, simply get in touch, and an Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will be happy to help. We will analyse the details surrounding your claim, and help you get access to the information you need to make an informed decision about making a claim.
So long as your accident took place within the past three years, you could have every right to claim and receive financial compensation for your injures.
