    Injury Claim in Wilberfoss

    Road traffic accidents

    If you have been involved in any type of road traffic accident, you could make an injury claim in Wilberfoss for compensation. There are many different ways in which you could have sustained your injury that was not your fault: you may have been the driver of a vehicle such as a car, van, bus or lorry involved, the rider or passenger of a motorbike, a passenger in a car, taxi or bus, or a pedestrian or cyclist hit by a vehicle.

    Injuries you may have suffered from road traffic accidents

    A common injury suffered as a result of a road traffic accident is whiplash, which can be caused by a sudden and unforeseen jolt, for example from your car being hit from behind.

    Some common symptoms for whiplash include:

    • Neck pain;
    • Headaches;
    • Shoulder pain;
    • Back pain;
    • Loss of feeling in arms or hands; and
    • Dizziness.

    You should always seek medical advice from your GP or local hospital as soon as possible following any injury, as you could do more damage plus you need to log your injury with a medical professional. You can also make an injury claim in Wilberfoss if a friend or family member was to blame, as you would be claiming on their insurance company.

    What can I claim for?

    • Injuries to you or your passengers;
    • Loss of income;
    • Damage to your car and personal property;
    • Cost of a replacement/hire vehicle;
    • Expenses incurred as a result of the road traffic accident (e.g. medication, taxi fares and physiotherapy).

    Another common injury suffered by drivers and passengers in a road traffic accident is a brain injury caused by the head being hit or even hitting an object violently, which is called a traumatic brain injury. Symptoms can be mild, moderate or severe, depending on the extent of damage to the brain and the area effected. Even when there is no visible sign of trauma and you just see cuts or bruises, the brain may have been jostled inside the skull due to the force of impact causing bruising, bleeding and swelling of the brain.
