Car accident injuries in Sheffield do not have to be the end of the world. They do not have to result in you losing a lot of money, and do not have to be complicated or stressful to sort out. Car accident injuries can be painful and inconvenient, and if they are not your own fault then this can be very annoying as well. At least now there is a system for making a claim for money from the person who caused the accident – it is called a personal injury claim for compensation.
A special type of lawyer, called a personal injury lawyer, can help you to make a claim following an accident, and will negotiate a sum of compensation for you.
What causes car accident injuries in Sheffield?
All car accident injuries are about the transfer of energy. A car moves forward, and as it moves it has energy. This comes from the petrol or diesel being combusted (set alight) in the engine. When the car collides with something in a Sheffield street, it comes to a sudden halt and the energy has to go somewhere. The occupants carry on moving forward with kinetic energy until something stops them. This could be:
- The seatbelt;
- The airbag;
- The windscreen (although this could smash);
- The road outside the car; or
- Another object (such as a car, wall or tree).
Unfortunately, the object that causes the human occupants of the car to stop is likely to be harder and more robust that the human body. Therefore, it will be the human body that comes off worse in the collision. Car accidents can cause a range of injuries to just about any part of the body. If the vehicle is crushed with the occupants inside then a different range of injuries can be experienced. Some people even suffer from psychological injuries following a car accident and find themselves feeling very anxious or depressed. The anxiety may be specifically related to travelling in vehicles or may be more general. Some people require counselling or therapy to overcome these symptoms.
