Seat belts are designed to protect passengers and drivers, but what happens when they cause an injury?
In the event of a collision, those wearing a seat belt could suffer injuries to the neck, sternum, abdomen and chest. A seat belt can also heighten the effects of whiplash. If you have been injured in a Holyhead car accident that was caused by the negligence of another party, you could be entitled to claim compensation. At Accident Advice Helpline, we specialise in dealing with personal injury claims, and have successfully settled a number of RTA claims in the past. If you have been hurt because of your seat belt, we can help.
Could you make a claim?
You could be entitled to make a compensation claim if you have been hurt in an accident that has taken place within the past three years, and you were not at fault for it.
No matter if you were in the driver’s seat or if you were a passenger, if someone else’s driving has lead to an accident, you could stand to receive a substantial sum. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have over fourteen years of experience dealing with these sorts of cases, and with over 190 solicitors working around the country, it’s never been easier to connect with someone that can help.

Although the law stipulates you should be wearing a seat belt at all times, if you have had a Holyhead car accident and you were not wearing one, you can still make a compensation claim. However, it’s important to note that in these cases, the amount you could be awarded in compensation is typically lower than if you had a belt on.
To find out how much you could be owed, fill in our thirty-second claims calculator. This too will give you a rough idea of the amount you could stand to receive, but for more complicated cases (such as those involving passengers not wearing a seat belt for example), it may be more beneficial to talk to our personal injury claims advisers. Our team will be able to assess your case and provide you with a more detailed quote that takes everything into consideration, from the accident itself to the financial repercussions of it.
