Car collisions are one of the most common of road traffic accidents on UK roads, and many innocent victims are seriously injured or killed in them every year. It is because of the devastation a car collision can cause that the law says you are entitled to claim compensation from whoever was to blame for the accident. Lives are ruined by these events all the time, and if you are the innocent victim of one, you should be making a Hartlepool car accident claim, to get the compensation you so rightly deserve.
How injuries can ruin your life, and why innocent victims make Hartlepool car accident claims
Just think for a moment, if you woke up in hospital after a car collision, minus a leg, how bad you would feel. You would probably be in shock anyway because of the accident, and then to be told you had lost a limb would be horrendous.
But it doesn’t stop there. People who lose limbs in accidents, or have to have them amputated, can still suffer tremendous pain where the leg or arm used to be. British doctors first really became aware of the problem after World War 1, when 41,000 personnel from the armed forces returned home minus a limb.
Some of them suffered with phantom limb pain for the rest of their lives, and even though advances have been made in techniques for amputating limbs, very little advancement has been made in stopping this pain.
After affects such as this need taking into consideration when you are making a Hartlepool car accident claim, as do any other effects the injury has on your life.
Where great strides have been made over the last few years is in the quality and usability of prosthetic limbs. This is obvious from the way some people now take part in sports and races, something that would have been impossible not so many years ago.
Getting used to them and learning to use them can take months of hard work and physiotherapy, it is not just a case of fitting them and saying there we go now you can walk again. The pain and stress this can create causes some victims to opt not to use them, but that is a choice only they can make.
