Hurt in a car crash in Taunton Deane at low speed
RTA’s take place at motorway services more often than many people realise. It’s because motorway services are so busy; handling traffic coming and going, using the service’s fuel, refreshments, and convenience facilities. Although most of the accidents are relatively minor, because they happen at low speed. But nonetheless you can still be Hurt in a car crash in Taunton Deane at low speed.
Whiplash injuries are the most common injuries sustained at motorway services
One of the most common types of injuries that are sustained at motorway services like Taunton Deane, are whiplash injuries. Even relatively low speed collisions can result in whiplash. It may not be apparent at the time of the accident, as it often takes anywhere between 6 and 12 hours to materialise, usually after the accident victim has rested overnight. It’s the lack of movement during sleep that gives the injury the opportunity to manifest itself.
Whiplash injury has got a bad name
Whiplash injury has got something of a bad name with insurance companies because so many fraudulent claims have been registered in the past, many of which have been fully compensated. In light of recent events, whereby cases for whiplash have been turned over in the court system, insurance companies are now insistent on clear proof that a whiplash injury has indeed been sustained. The UK is trying to lose its unfortunate title of being called the whiplash injury claim capital of Europe.
What this means for whiplash injuries in Taunton Deane road traffic accidents
What this means for anyone who has suffered a genuine whiplash injury in Taunton Deane road traffic accidents, is that they will have to be prepared to supply proof positive of their injury. This entails:
- Obtaining medical proof
- Providing photographs showing the collision damage to the vehicles
- Providing the names and addresses of any witnesses to the incident
It is also important that the incident must have taken place within the previous three years. In fact, the three-year statute of limitations will probably soon be reduced as part of the effort to stop people jumping on the bandwagon, and to minimise the number of fraudulent claims.
