Car accident claims in Havant don’t happen often, but the volume of cars and other vehicles on the roads makes it almost inevitable that some people will be affected at some point. Havant is a big town, populated by some 45,000 people, and the roads in some areas can be busy. Havant sits in the far south-eastern corner of Hampshire and covers less than eight square miles.
Most car accidents are very small and inconsequential. Imagine a minor prang in a car park for example, or while trying to park elsewhere. Sometimes, one car will bump into another while in a queue for traffic lights or while slow-moving traffic is edging along, but injuries are rare in such situations.
What about more serious injuries?
If you have ever been in a car accident that happened at 20mph or more, you’ll know injuries can easily and quickly happen in these situations. Whiplash is very common, as is plenty of bruising in the areas where the body is held in the seated position by the seatbelt. These can incur deep-tissue bruising that takes a while to dissipate and can be quite painful too.
The more serious a car accident is, the greater the chance of injuries to those involved. The greater the damage to the car, the more likely it is those inside will receive other injuries. For example, leg injuries and injuries to the torso or head could be increasingly likely if the car turned over in the accident or the front was crushed in to a greater degree. While some people recover well from their injuries, others might potentially be left with problems for the rest of their lives.
