If you have been involved in a road traffic accident (or road traffic collision as they are technically known) within the last three years that was not your fault, then you might be entitled to make a compensation claim in Wiveliscombe.
Road Traffic Accidents
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident then you know how frightening an experience it can be. The resulting injuries can also be very serious, from whiplash to broken bones, burns, spinal and head injuries to amputations. The injuries you sustain can be catastrophic and have a lasting impact on your day to day life and how you are able to perform even the most mundane of tasks.
If you have been affected by injuries sustained during a road traffic accident then you might consider making a compensation claim in Wiveliscombe to try to get some financial compensation to assist you with making the changes that are needed to accommodate your injuries.
Passengers in Vehicles
Anyone travelling in a vehicle that has been involved in an accident is at risk to being injured; however, many people assume that because they are just the passenger in a vehicle they will not be able to make a compensation claim in Wiveliscombe.
This is not the case. Generally speaking, if you are involved in a road traffic accident, and have been injured as a result, then you will not be regarded as being responsible or liable in anyway, which means that you would be eligible to make a compensation claim in Wiveliscombe.
Even if the driver of the vehicle you were travelling in was responsible for the accident, it doesn’t matter. As long as you were not at fault in anyway then there is a good chance you will be awarded financial compensation.
Compensation, when awarded, may be reduced slightly if you were knowingly travelling as the passenger of a driver who was under the influence of banned substances, such as non-prescription drugs or alcohol.
You might also be awarded less money if you were not wearing a seat-belt at the time of the accident as it is the law to wear one, and they are there to protect you from more serious injury.
