Could you make car accident injury claims in North Devon after an incident with a farming vehicle?
If you live in a rural area, such as Devon or Cornwall, you may be used to seeing agricultural and farming vehicles on the road. However, people who live in inner city and urban areas may find this rather a novelty.
As these types of vehicles tend to travel more slowly than cars or lorries, drivers held up in traffic can get rather impatient. In some cases, drivers may try to overtake other vehicles. Although this is permissible if done safely, if drivers take unnecessary or dangerous risks, accidents could occur.
Due to the weight of agricultural vehicles, an incident which involves this type of machinery can cause very serious injuries indeed. If you have been affected by a collision involving a farming vehicle, you may want to consider making car accident injury claims in North Devon.
Providing you can show that you weren’t at fault and that you didn’t cause the incident, there’s a good chance that you will be able to obtain compensation.
Did you seek medical help?
Not only is it essential to obtain medical treatment in order to make a compensation claim, it’s also vital that you seek medical help to protect your own health. Although you may not think you have been badly injured, some types of injuries can take hours to develop. Rather than risking your life, it’s generally best to get checked out by a medical professional after any type of accident.
Do you need to make a claim quickly?
The sooner you get your claim started, the sooner you could be awarded compensation. However, this doesn’t mean that you are required to make car accident injury claims in North Devon straight after an incident has occurred.
Providing you make your claim within three years of the incident occurring, you should be able to obtain compensation for your injuries.
