Dudley, a town in the West Midlands, benefits from being within a few miles of both Birmingham and Wolverhampton. Some of its 79,000 or so residents work locally, while others travel out to these cities. The borough of Dudley is home to more than 300,000 people, so it’s easy to imagine there would be some car accident claims in Dudley each month.
Most people who go out in their cars each day – whether in Dudley or elsewhere – do so without incident. However, you never know whether something might go wrong and an accident could result. And of course, you never know if you could be unlucky enough to get caught up in it.
Examples of car accidents
Most car accidents that do happen – and they are rare, don’t forget – are simple bump-and-shunt types of accidents. However, even at low speeds there is a chance of getting soft tissue injuries inflicted by the seatbelt you are wearing, or even whiplash, albeit mildly.
Other injuries can occur if you are driving along and the accident happens at a higher speed. You may not be going above the speed limit, but this is not necessary for injuries to be more serious in nature. Not only do you have physical injuries to be concerned about, you might also find it more difficult to get back in a car again afterwards. This is quite common but it should abate after a while once you recover.
