    Car accident in Erewash


    Erewash is the name of a borough and a government district, both of which are in Derbyshire. The area takes up much of the south-eastern corner of the county. The population was estimated in 2016 to be around 114,900 people, so it would not surprise you to learn there are many drivers on the roads in Erewash. Thankfully, despite the figures, there are very few occasions where a car accident in Erewash occurs. Most of those that do are very minor shunts or knocks, perhaps in a car park, for example, or in other situations where only a low speed is involved.

    However, some accidents result in people being injured, and this can apply to drivers, passengers, and even unlucky pedestrians if the vehicles involved mount the pavement, or strike someone who is crossing the road. Injuries can range from minor scrapes and bruises to those that can threaten the life of the person involved, with much depending on the speeds involved and the exact nature of the accident itself.

    Does a car accident in Erewash need to be serious to make a compensation claim?

    This is something many people want to know about. Some believe their injuries must be serious for there to be a reason to make a compensation claim. However, the only thing to consider is this. If someone else caused the car accident in Erewash to happen, and you were injured in that accident, however minor those injuries are, you have a right to seek compensation.

    For example, whiplash is a common injury in these circumstances, especially in cases where you are in your vehicle and someone hits you from behind. This is far more likely to result in whiplash than if someone hits you in the front or side of your vehicle (although you could still get whiplash in those instances). Now, whiplash may not be life threatening, but it can still be very painful in the days following your accident. If your neck is stiff and painful to move, you may not be able to drive, or sleep, or do other things you take for granted at other times. So, there would be a reasonable chance of claiming compensation for this injury.
