From whiplash to loss of limbs, car crash injuries in Knowsley can vary in severity. Potentially any kind of injury, though, could lead to a claim being made.
Who can claim compensation?
The fact that the severity of an injury doesn’t affect the right to claim is something that may surprise you. After all, if you’re suffering from whiplash, it might clear up within a few weeks after getting some rest and taking some painkillers. Is there any need to claim?
Well, yes, there could well be the need to claim. Whiplash can still cause people to need time off work, which can lead to income loss. Why should someone with whiplash suffer financial hardship because of someone else’s actions? They could receive a payout that will enable them to get their lost earnings back, as well as any expenses related to their accident (such as prescription charges).
If you’ve had an accident that was someone else’s fault, and it led to injury, then you could be eligible to claim. Usually, it must also have happened within the past three years. However, if you were under 18 when you had your car crash, there could be an extension to this deadline for beginning a claim.
