    Car accident in Kirkbymoorside

    If you’re looking for a solicitor you might be wondering what’s involved with making a claim. Well to give you an idea of what might be involved, here’s a walk through of a typical type of claim that we often receive. Read on if you have had a car accident in Kirkbymoorside.

    A sample case

    For the purposes of this article we’re going to imagine that you’ve been involved in a car accident. You were forced to brake suddenly and were hit by the car behind you. You suffered whiplash and have ongoing dizzy spells which you’re getting treatment for.

    Is there a claim?

    In order to assess this case you’ll have to look at several things. The extent of your injuries will have to have been severe enough to cause a lasting negative impact on your life. Whiplash is certainly the kind of injury that would qualify for that. To illustrate your injuries you should take a note of any medical treatment you’ve had as a result of this injury.

    There may also be a financial impact. If you’re paying money travelling to get treatment, this will be folded into your compensation package. Equally, if you’ve been forced off work for any period of time, this will also be included.

    About blame

    The big grey area, though, will be the whole issue of who is to blame. You will think it was the other driver because he ploughed into you, but he might say you stopped too quickly. There is merit in your argument because even though you stopped quickly, he should have been keeping enough of a distance to have time to react – so the chances are that he would be thought of as being to blame, but this still could be something that is contested.
