How to find out if you might be eligible for claiming compensation for injury after a car crash
Imagine you are going about your daily business driving along a road which you drive along most weeks and you are looking forward to getting home to seeing your wife and son. You are not thinking about claiming compensation for injury after a car crash; nothing is further from your mind. As you drive along a straight road you see another car coming up a side road which has a give way sign at the T junction. You presume that the car will stop at the junction, like it is supposed to do, so you carry on driving along the road as is your right of way.
The driver is not concentrating as her children are fighting in the back of the car and her elderly father is sitting beside her in the passenger seat complaining that she was late picking him up for his doctor’s appointment. She does not stop but drives straight into the side of your car and knocks your vehicle off the road. It happens so quickly, you do not know what has hit you.

You should seek medical treatment right away as car accidents like that can cause all sorts of problems with your health.
