Claiming after a car crash in Mansfield is something you’re either comfortable with, or petrified of. Having been involved in a road traffic accident, of any size, emotions are likely to be running high and you’re probably still shaken up or receiving treatment as a result.
If you’re the kind of person who is pretty calm in any situation and you feel comfortable making a compensation claim, then that’s great, but there are people out there who will react in completely the opposite way – just like the crash itself perhaps.
Same accidents, different reactions
Take two identical accidents, head-on collisions on a main road through Mansfield as a result of one driver pulling out of a side road onto the main road and misjudging the speed of the other motorist.
While one driver in the innocent vehicle might be fortunate enough to sustain relatively insignificant cuts and bruises, the driver of the other innocent vehicle might be left with much more serious internal injuries or even a head injury. This requires several days in hospital and an indefinite period of time off work and receiving follow-up treatment with a GP or even a physiotherapist.
The two innocent victims, having sustained different injuries, will react differently with one able to continue with their everyday life while the other is forced to stay in hospital for treatment or to be given regular support from healthcare professionals at home.
This person might not be comfortable claiming after a car crash in Mansfield because the incident has left them shaken up and distressed enough, the last thing they want is to have to go through a complicated legal case which will only add to the stress and delay the recovery.
