You’ll probably be familiar with Berkshire as a county in the south east of England, so you might correctly guess that West Berkshire is a local government district – one of several in the county. Around 155,000 live there, and some take advantage of its links to both London and Bristol for work. Car accident compensation claims in West Berkshire do occasionally take place, but most people experience no problems on the roads at all.
While the roads are generally safe, there are instances where you might end up being injured if someone else isn’t as attentive as they should be. Speeding, a lack of attention and failing to see another road user can all potentially lead to an accident taking place.
The consequences of a car accident
Car accidents, even minor ones, can have profound effects on the people involved. It is normal to feel nervous about getting back in a car again afterwards, for example, even if you have no choice but to do so. Some people manage better than others, but you never know how you are going to be affected unless and until you are in this situation.
Then there are the physical injuries you might potentially have. Anything from whiplash to broken bones is possible, with a chance to get knocked out if you hit your head on impact. This could potentially mean you have little memory of what happened, which could mean you struggle to know whether you could claim anything at all.
