What injuries have you suffered in a car accident in North-west Leicestershire?
If you’ve been injured in a car accident in North-west Leicestershire then you could find you’re able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Say you were driving to work and another car failed to stop at a red light, hitting your vehicle and leaving you suffering from whiplash. Or perhaps you were driving along a rural road when a driver hit your vehicle from the rear, leaving you suffering from a broken leg and a head injury.
Driver error accounts for 90% of road accidents, so for example if a driver is distracted at the wheel (for instance, using their mobile phone) then they could be held liable for your accident and ordered to pay you personal injury compensation for your injuries. If your injuries are serious, you may need to take a significant amount of time off work, which will affect you and your family financially. Accident Advice Helpline can help you to claim compensation which will help you out if this has happened to you.
