    Car accident in Sedbergh

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Sedbergh

    Cumbria is a very popular area of the country, both to live and work in and to visit on holiday. Perhaps it is not surprising then that so many people are familiar with it. If you did go on holiday here, the last thing you would expect to happen would be to have a car accident in Sedbergh, or indeed any other town in Cumbria. Thankfully, the odds against it happening are long, but of course you can never tell what is about to happen in your life.

    A car accident can potentially be very dangerous and perhaps even life threatening in some instances. A wide number of factors will determine whether this is the case. While most accidents are far less serious than this, there is a chance you will still suffer injuries in a more minor accident.

    Typical injuries resulting from a car accident

    Some injuries are more common than others when someone is involved in a car accident, no matter where it happens or how it occurs. For instance, whiplash is very likely as your head tends to get jerked forwards on impact, even as your seatbelt locks to prevent you from being flung forwards. This is the case even in minor collisions.

    Similarly, while wearing a seatbelt does often prevent more serious injuries happening, it can cause bruising and soft tissue injuries in itself. It can be quite surprising how bruised you can be after even a mild collision. You may well ache considerably the day after it happens, too.

    How much could you get in compensation as the result of an accident of this nature?

    It depends on lots of different factors. The severity of each injury you suffer will be taken into account, as well as the length of time it takes you to recover from each one. If you cannot work, you may lose out financially, and this too would be considered. Make sure you keep any receipts you might have relating to expenses incurred because of your injuries.
