Like any area of the United Kingdom, the West Midlands suffer from a high incidence rate of traffic collisions and accidents, both on country roads and in towns and city centres. In fact, recent statistics have shown that in 2013 alone, there were almost 7,000 casualties due to car accidents in the West Midlands area.
However, another trend is that less and less people every single year are choosing not to claim compensation for the injuries they may suffer in accidents. The reason that was given most often was that many people believed their injuries would not entitle them to compensation – even if they actually would be eligible for compensation from car collision claims in the West Midlands!
As such, if you have been injured in a car accident in the area in the last three years, it is now more important than ever to make sure you have all the information you need about car collision claims in the West Midlands before you make a decision about whether or not you will make a new claim for compensation – and if you have been putting it off and it’s almost been a full three years since your accident, it’s vital to get all the necessary information as soon as possible!
That’s why, at Accident Advice Helpline, we want to help you find the information you need about car accident claims in the West Midlands before the time your claim runs out.
Car collision claims in the West Midlands
To be able to make a new claim for compensation, you or the person you intend to claim for have to have been injured and received medical assistance due to an accident of whatever kind which occurred within the last three years which was someone else’s fault.
When it comes to car accidents, many people tend to be injured as a result of the collision, such as experiencing whiplash due to a rear end shunt, or cuts, bruises or fractures due to side-on collisions from other drivers.
If you would like to find out what kind of compensation you might receive for your specific injury, Accident Advice Helpline uses a free 30 second test which you can take prior to getting in touch, from the comfort of your own computer. You’ll need to provide some details about your accident and the subsequent injury, and in return, you’ll receive information and estimates of how much compensation you could gain if your claim is successful.
Our solicitors will do their utmost to make sure you gain the compensation you are entitled to, but it’s important to remember that estimated claim amounts cannot be guaranteed before staring a claim – so you should get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to begin your claim as soon as possible.
