Catastrophic injury car accident claims in Derbyshire Dales – what you need to know

These kinds of injuries can have a debilitating, life-long impact on the victim, and also have a significant affect on his or her loved ones.

If the accident was not your fault, you could be able to claim financial compensation with help from Accident Advice Helpline.
What constitutes a catastrophic injury?
A catastrophic injury is one that has a life-long impact, and one that causes significant stress to the victims loved ones.
When someone suffers a catastrophic injury, they may be relegated to requiring round the clock care, or to life requiring assistance with breathing, feeding or movement. This can place substantial strain on the loved ones that are forced to provide this care, be it emotional or financial. Catastrophic injuries normally affect the brain or spinal cord, and they can often occur as a result of a serious car accident.
How do I know if I can make a claim?
To make a catastrophic personal injury claim for yourself or a loved one, the circumstances surrounding the collision must meet certain criteria.
Firstly, the negligence of another driver must have caused the accident to occur. This means that you as a driver or passenger must not have been at fault for the accident. If another caused the accident through speeding or reckless/aggressive driving, for example, they could be held responsible for their actions with a claim. The accident must also have taken place within the past three years in order for you to make a claim.
