Have you recently been in a car crash? If so, you will probably have had a difficult time afterwards. Perhaps your car is still being repaired, or maybe it has even been written off. You have probably had to deal with the police, and certainly with your insurance company. But have you also suffered personal injury?
Personal injury in a car crash
In a car crash, the most common injury is whiplash. The sudden impact causes the head to jerk, which in turn causes damage to the neck’s tendons and ligaments. Of course, other injuries can happen in a car crash, such as broken ribs or concussion. Some injuries are severe.
What should I do if I am in a car crash?
Take details from the other party or parties involved, as well as from witnesses. Inform the police if required, they can be witnesses and call for medical attention if it is needed.
Make sure you keep records. Take photographs of the damage to your car and to street furniture; also capture the road conditions on your camera or mobile phone. Take photos of your injuries, too.
Why claim for compensation when I have had a car crash?
Given that even a minor personal injury from a car crash can cause many problems, why not claim compensation? You are coping with reduced mobility; you could be bed-ridden for a period. You could even have to stop working, either for a short period or indefinitely. Whatever has happened, there is clearly an impact upon your life.
