What kind of issues can I claim compensation for if I have had a car accident in Irvine?
If you, or your loved ones, have received an injury that wasn’t your fault you can make a personal injury compensation claim. It’s not just drivers who can claim, passengers who have been in a car accident in Irvine can also receive moderate or severe injuries if the car they have been travelling in isn’t road-worthy, the driver has driven recklessly or is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Neck injuries, due to the head and neck being jerked forward and backwards on sudden impact, are a common passenger injury. A mild neck injury such as whiplash can be uncomfortable and require time off work. More severe injuries, such as a cervical herniated disc can cause lasting pain and weakness in the affected area.
- Facial injuries are frequently seen on passengers at the scene of road traffic accidents and are usually caused by colliding with objects in the car, such as a window or dashboard or shattering glass. Problems can include jaw fractures, dental injuries, lacerations and burns. Serious facial damage can result in long-lasting psychological distress and require years of counselling.
