Sadly, road traffic collisions (known as RTC’s) are becoming more and more common – and often leave behind destruction, injuries and heartache for those involved.
If you’ve been involved in an RTC which was the fault of another driver then it’s likely that you can make a compensation claim in Stanton St John.
An RTC occurs when one or more vehicle is involved in a collision. This may be because one driver fails to observe what another is doing and collides with them, because a driver becomes distracted by an animal or person running into the road and has to swerve into another solid object to avoid running them over or when a driver fails to notice a person crossing the road and runs them over. There are of course many more situations than these three which may fit the definition.
Whatever the actual circumstances the fact is that a person or persons have become injured because of the carelessness or negligence of another person, and in this situation the injured party has the right to make a compensation claim Stanton St John.
Why make a Compensation Claim in Stanton St John?
The sad fact about RTC’s is the damage they can cause to the injured party or parties. From whiplash injuries which occur when the neck is jerked forward by the impact of an accident causing long or short term damage and severe pain to the neck and shoulders, to broken ribs and other bones which may be caused either by impact or by safety features such as a seatbelt or airbag, the potential for injury or loss of life in a vehicle collision is immeasurable.
If you’ve been the victim of injuries because of the poor or negligent driving of another person in the last 3 years then you have the right to make a compensation claim in Stanton St John.
Making your Claim
Of course, the first thing you should do following any accident is to seek urgent medical attention. Not only will this ensure that any injuries you or other passengers have sustained are properly diagnosed and treated but those documented injuries can act as evidence to support your compensation claim in Stanton St John.
In the event of a severe RTC, you or another person should ensure that the police are called. Not only can the police ensure the safety of all involved people and vehicles but they can prevent further accidents from passing motorists. Furthermore, the police can be extremely useful in determining the circumstances of the collision and will make investigations to find out exactly what happened. The results of such investigations may also act as evidence as you make your claim.
Whatever the circumstances or the nature of your injuries, making a compensation claim needn’t be as difficult as you may be imagining.
