Like any city in the United Kingdom, York has its fair share of accidents which occur on the road or in traffic. In fact, it’s estimated that in the city of York alone, there are upwards of 1,000 accidents on the roads, with the majority of car accident incidents seem to be taking place on A roads.
Because of the high incidence of traffic and road accidents in York, at Accident Advice Helpline, we believe it is important for anyone who has been injured in a car accident in the area that was not their fault are aware how they could benefit from car accident claims in York.
Claiming compensation after a car accident in York
If you pursue a new claim after being injured in an accident in the last three years which wasn’t your fault, and Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury lawyers help you get there, you’ll receive compensation for any injuries you sustained in your accident. This compensation can make all the difference, especially if your day to day life has been severely negatively impacted by being injured in your accident. In fact, some of the things that your compensation could cover includes:
- Travel costs associated with your injury, such as getting to and from hospital
- Medical and prescription costs for antibiotics and other medicine
- Costs of arranging for help around the home
- Costs of arranging adequare childcare when you are unable to look after children or dependents
The amount of compensation you receive could depend on various factors, including the location and severity of your injuries; for example, those with milder or more easily-treatable injuries tend to receive less compensation than those with severe injuries.
However, this does not mean it’s not worth claiming for compensation if you only have mild injuries! Less and less people every year are choosing to claim compensation because they believe their injuries would not qualify them for compensation, even if they would be eligible to claim!
