If you have a Rushcliffe car accident, just because you are in a car does not mean the other vehicle is one, it could be any of:
- Heavy goods vehicles
- Any other type of vehicle that travels on our roads
If you have a Rushcliffe car accident involving a cyclist, they are likely to be more severely injured than you, because they do not have the protection a car gives. But if your are the smaller vehicle, hit by a lorry or a bus, you are likely to be worse off, if you survive that is.
HGV’s in particular are involved in many accidents on our roads, and although the obvious place is the motorways, often it is on small city road as the drivers try to manoeuvre these monsters round tight corners etc.
HGV drivers generally do an amazing job, but sometimes as they are turning a corner on smaller streets, they cannot always see other vehicles, cyclists or motorbikes behind them and it is not unusual for them to cause an accident in this way.
The criteria for making a claim after a Rushcliffe car accident
If you are injured in a Rushcliffe car accident, there is a criteria you must fit before you can the compensation you may be entitled to, such as:
- The accident should not have been your fault
- The accident should have happened within the last three years
- You should have needed medical attention for your injuries
It is not just accidents on out roads that these rules apply to, all accidents come with the scope of personal injury claims if they fit the above criteria.
What else you can claim for
Most victims know that compensation is paid for the suffering they have been caused but what many do not realise is there are other things that can be claimed for as well.The impact on your life is accounted for, the recovery to. You can also reclaim any expenses you have had to bear because of the accident, such things as:
- Loss of earnings
- Travel expenses
- Medical expenses
- Care costs
- Any other cost or loss that is a direct result of the accident
