Car crashes are actually more common than people realise. Just because we do not hear about them ourselves everyday, it doesn’t mean they aren’t happening. The official estimates for road traffic accidents in the UK each year puts the figure between 660,000 and 880,000. At the very least that means that there are nearly 13,000 accidents on our roads every week. Are you among the innocent victims that are injured in road accidents that were not their own fault? Claiming for car crashes in Huddersfield is only possible for those who aren’t to blame for such accidents.
Claiming for car crashes in Huddersfield is your legal right
If you find yourself in this situation, the law in the UK says you are entitled to claim compensation from whoever caused the accident. The law also says that as well as being paid for your injuries, you should also be repaid any costs and losses that have arisen because of the accident. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we often help people interested in claiming for car crashes in Huddersfield.
The losses that can be recouped as part of your claim
The most typical result of an accident is loss of earnings. If you’re employed, you may well be paid statutory sick pay while you are off, but this is a fraction of what most people earn. The balance can be reclaimed. You’ll need to prove the loss. This is usually achieved by the completion of a form by your employer. It confirms your income before the accident, and what you received while you were unable to work. For the self employed, it is not quite so straightforward. You’ll need to enlist the help of a chartered accountant. However, you can recoup the cost of the accountant as part of your compensation claim.
