England is divided into lots of local government districts, one of which takes the name of South Staffordshire. This describes an area of Staffordshire in the south-western portion of the county, populated by about 110,000 people per figures gleaned in 2014. Any area that is heavily populated is going to see accidents happen more frequently because of the population levels. Thus, car accident claims in South Staffordshire aren’t common but they are perhaps more likely to occur than claims in the smallest villages you can think of.
Some people go through life without being involved in a car accident. Others might be unlucky and get caught up in a crash someone else was the cause of. In the latter case, you may be hurt even though you did nothing to cause the incident. This can be hard to come to terms with.
How bad does a car crash need to be for you to claim?
Even minor car accidents can result in injuries to those involved. Even at 15 to 20mph, for example, if someone going the same speed crashes into you, that is a combined speed of at least 30mph, so you can expect to feel some after-effects.
Some people experience whiplash, either at the time or soon afterwards. Many feel aches and pains the following day they weren’t aware of at the time. Furthermore, some people are prone to being bruised by the seatbelt when it does its job and protects the person by keeping them inside the vehicle. This is the lesser of two evils, but it still causes pain and discomfort.
