If you look at a group of people who have suffered car accident injuries in Birmingham then it is possible to spot that they fall into a few distinct categories. Most people in all of these categories will be able to start a personal injury claim by calling the leading law firm, Accident Advice Helpline.
Car accident injuries in Birmingham – car drivers
Car drivers are in a unique position – they can both be at fault for the accident and the innocent victims of the accident. Drivers can cause car accident injuries in Birmingham by driving in an inappropriate way around the Birmingham streets. They may drive too fast, they may become distracted (e.g. by talking on a mobile phone) or they may even be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If they caused the accident then they will NOT be able to make a personal injury claim because they would be claiming from themselves!
Drivers can also be the victim of car accidents that were caused by another driver. These innocent victims can make a personal injury claim in the same way as everyone else and Accident Advice Helpline can help with this. Drivers often suffer whiplash because they have been thrown forward in their seats but can also suffer chest and head injuries where they have collided with the steering wheel or dashboard. They may also suffer leg injuries or crushing injuries of any part of the body. Accident Advice Helpline offer assistance to scores of drivers with car accident injuries in Birmingham every year.
Car accident injuries in Birmingham – passengers
Car passengers are less likely to have caused a car accident because they are not in charge of the vehicle but they can certainly be injured. They can also suffer whiplash and can strike their head, chest and abdomen on the dashboard or windscreen. They could also suffer lower back and limb injuries. They can start a personal injury claim by contacting Accident Advice Helpline today.
Car accident injuries in Birmingham – pedestrians
Pedestrians can cause accidents by not paying attention or by acting recklessly. However, it is much more common for a pedestrian to be hurt in a car accident that was caused by a car driver. The car driver and passenger are encased in a metal shell and so have some degree of protection. The situation for the pedestrian is much worse. They are being hit by a hard metal object (often with great force) and they do not have any protection at all. For this reason, it is often the pedestrian that suffers the more serious injuries. Pedestrians can be hurt on any part of their body and some may suffer psychological injuries after the accident as well. Accident Advice Helpline can help them to claim for these.Open Claim Calculator
