It is often very difficult to know what will happen when you launch a claim for an injury, so here we thought we’d run through how a typical claim might work.
For the purposes of this hypothetical case study we’re going to look at the example of someone who is looking for a compensation solicitor in Landford to help with injuries sustained in a car accident.
Let’s say, for a moment, that you’ve been involved in a car crash. You had to swerve suddenly to avoid a pedestrian and were hit by the car behind you. As a result of the accident you’ve suffered whiplash and severe bruising to your legs which has kept you off your feet for a few weeks.
How bad is it?
Now, nobody would pretend that this is in the most severe category of accidents, but it is serious enough to warrant a claim. Whiplash is an injury which requires medical attention and if you’ve been forced off work then there may be issues surrounding loss of earnings that need to be sorted out.
Who is to blame?
The other driver may well dispute the issue of blame. However, he should have been maintaining a safe distance and driving slowly enough that he could react to anything unforeseen. So, even though the accident was caused by you having to swerve then he still shoulders a large part of the blame for the accident.
