It’s a common misconception that all car accidents that result in injury take place while travelling at speed. It certainly may be the case that the more serious injuries occur in smashes that happen between vehicles that are bombing along, but this doesn’t mean that comparatively low-impact car accidents do not result in people being injured.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident that was not your fault while travelling at a low speed, you will have just as much as chance of successfully making a claim for compensation as a person who was hurt in a high-speed incident. If you have been injured in any car accident in Smethwick, read on to find out how to go about taking action.
Making a claim after a car accident in Smethwick
Maybe you were hurt after another car went into the back of yours while you were waiting at a junction for the lights to change? There might have been minimal damage to your car, and you may have felt perfectly well and uninjured in the direct aftermath of the incident, but there will be a possibility that you might have sustained a whiplash injury and only experience the symptoms some time later.
If this were to happen to you, there will be a chance that you might be able to take action against the driver who caused the incident in which you were hurt. In most cases, you’ll typically find that the driver’s insurance firm would pick up the tab, so the person involved might not need to put their hand in their pocket, although they likely will see a hike in their annual car insurance premium if their cover provider did have to pay out. However, this will not be any of your concern, as your main focus should be trying to win the compensation to which you might be entitled.
