The UK’s roads are busy places these days, aren’t they? With so much traffic, and people rushing to get to workplaces, appointments and meetings it is little wonder that the number of road traffic accident claims are on the rise every year.
Every single day, Accident Advice Helpline is handling cases concerning injuries that have involved motor vehicles.
By seeking compensation for the victims of a car crash in Suffolk, Accident Advice Helpline aims to bring some restitution.
What types of personal injuries can be claimed for?
Thanks to advances in car safety features, many accidents are no longer serious. Typical shunts, and even some high speed collisions which would previously have caused more severe injuries, now often only result in cuts and bruises for the drivers and passengers involved.
However, despite this dip the injuries we deal with now are sometimes caused by seat belts.
These can include:
- broken ribs
Whiplash is caused by the rapid back and forth movement of the head, at the point of impact and it is more common than ever now because the seat belt holds the body in place but leaves the head free to bob around. The results of this can have a major impact on peoples lives, because it can cause serious damage to the neck, back and shoulders.
People who have suffered even seemingly minor whiplash should always consider making a claim for a car crash in Suffolk, or wherever it may have happened.
Who can make a claim for a car crash in Suffolk?
If you have been involved in a car crash in Suffolk, that was not your fault, then the chances are that you will be able to make a compensation claim. This doesn’t just include the drivers of the vehicles either; any passengers travelling in the cars involved can also make a claim.
Road traffic accidents aren’t limited to just people in cars, of course; if you have been involved in a collision on the road but you were on a push bike, walking, sat on a bus… you can still make a compensation claim. Still unsure? Call us today and let us take you through it.
