Anyone involved in a car crash can suffer a huge amount of trauma, but this can be compounded when the accident was not your own fault. It is often the shock of what has happened that creates the stress and anxiety that victims suffer, and this will be accounted for when they make an East Dorset car accident claim for compensation with Accident Advice Helpline.
The most common causes of car crashes
Car crashes happen for many different reasons, just some of them being:
- Jumping red traffic lights
- Not stopping at traffic islands
- Drivers losing concentration, usually doing something they shouldn’t be while in charge of a motor vehicle
- Drivers not spotting cycles or motorbikes until it is too late
- Overtaking when it is unsafe to do so
These are just samples of the reasons car crashes, and all other types of road traffic accidents happen, and if you are the innocent victim of one, you may be entitled to make an East Dorset car accident claim for compensation.
The injuries that cause victims to make an East Dorset car accident claim
The injuries that can be sustained in car crashes are endless, some of them being life threatening and others changing the life of the victim and their loved one forever. They can include such things as:
- Head and brain injuries
- Back and spine injuries
- Eye injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Loss of digits
- Road rash
- Facial injuries
- Fatal injuries
If the victim does not survive the car crash that was not their fault, their family may be able to make an East Dorset car accident claim for fatal injuries. It is not just the injuries that can be claimed for. Accidents usually cause many extra expenses, and sometimes a loss of earnings. If the personal injury claim is successful, these can be recouped as long as the victim has proof they have had to pay them.
Making your compensation claim
Any type of accident that you were not to blame for, if your injuries needed the attention of the medical profession, and the accident happened no more than three years ago, entitles you to claim compensation.
This is the law in the UK, and as a legal process it is much safer handled by a specialist law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline.
