Wrong time, wrong place – get in touch for free claims advice in West Yorkshire
You could have been driving around the same roundabout that you’ve gone around for years, just a few minutes from your home or place of work, when another driver decides that they’re going to pull straight out in front of you, leaving you with nowhere to go but into the side or rear of their car.
All of a sudden, rather than getting home in time for some quality family time your whole world is turned upside down and you’re off to hospital.
These events can all happen in a blur – you certainly can’t plan for them. We have no way of dictating what other road users are going to do, and that often makes the car crash injuries in West Yorkshire worse, because we can’t even brace ourselves or try and avoid them.
Claiming compensation for car crash injuries
At least when you’re the innocent victim in a car accident – either as the driver or a passenger – you might be able to make a claim for compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline handle hundreds of claims from injured motorists from across Yorkshire each year and have a wealth of experience in road traffic accident cases.
This money can go some way to covering the financial repercussions of the accident, such as your time off work and loss of earnings, or it could even go towards your rehabilitation, hospital transport and generally covering the stress.
Before you head out and hire any old lawyer, however, it’s vital that you follow a few tips. The first of which is to try and note down as much information about the accident as you possibly can.
Everything from the time and date, location and weather conditions to approximate speeds, names of witnesses and the medical treatment you received will be useful in helping your claims team to process the information to give you the best representation and chance of winning the case.
Visiting your GP will also be particularly useful, especially if you don’t need to go straight to hospital after the crash. An appointment with your doctor, even if it’s a follow-up after your release from hospital, will provide evidence of your treatment and any concerns or diagnoses from the experts (such as statements about the injuries being as a result of the accident), which will also be used in your claim.
