If you’ve had a car crash, you will know better than anyone just how difficult it is afterwards. Your car has to be repaired (or it might be written off), you may have to deal with insurance companies and the police – and, worse still, you may suffer personal injury.
Personal injury as a result of a car crash
When you think of injuries sustained in a car crash, you probably think of whiplash. Indeed, it is the commonest injury in such accidents, involving damage to the neck’s ligaments and tendons due to head movement from the sudden impact. Other injuries such as broken bones can, of course, result from a car crash.
Why should I claim for personal injury from a car crash?
Perhaps the question should be: why not claim for personal injury caused by a car crash? Think of the health problems that have occurred as a direct result. They are having an impact on your life. You could be confined to bed, unable to work for an undetermined period.
Then there is the expense – not just from the loss of work, but also from the extra costs you may have to bear for travel to and from hospital, and possibly childcare or a home help.
So how can I find a personal injury lawyer in Notter Bridge?
Accident Advice Helpline is here to help. We have a helpline staffed by professional advisors, whose friendly manner means that you will be treated with the utmost respect, sensitivity and confidentiality. Our patron is Esther Rantzen, a noted consumer champion.
You can reach us on 0800 689 0500 from your landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. You can also text “claim365” to 80100.
We will be able to advise you whether or not you qualify for compensation. You can also find out via our 30 second test, a free compensation calculator on our website.
If you qualify, we can give you an estimate of the value of your claim, and assign you to an in house personal injury lawyer in Notter Bridge who will take on your case.
What else do I need to know?
You are under no obligation to proceed. If you do proceed, the time it takes to be paid compensation varies from case to case. There is no guarantee you will be paid a certain amount, or that you will be successful – but all our lawyers work on a 100% no win no fee* basis.
We can process most claims by telephone, but you may need to attend one additional medical assessment. It is unlikely, however, that you will need to attend court.
What should I do if I have had a car crash?
Gather as much evidence as you can. Take details from other parties involved and from witnesses.
Also, take plenty of photographs if you can. Take pictures of your injuries, the damage to your car, and damage to any street furniture such as bollards or road signs. Take shots that show the road conditions, too. Do all this at the scene with the camera function on your mobile phone if you can, or as soon as possible after the event.
