We all know they’re out there — those drivers who have no insurance — and though we may try to avoid them like the plague, at some point or other we are bound to meet them. Even in the quiet old village of Woodhurst in Cambridgeshire, accidents happen. When they do, you should hope that you have an injury lawyer in Woodhurst on your side.
What happens when you have an accident with an uninsured driver?
Though insurance should be a non-negotiable part of owning a car, many people skip on this for two reasons — because it is expensive or they think that nothing will go wrong.
They are right on the first, but quite wrong on the second. When you have an accident that leaves you injured caused by a driver who is uninsured, you need the help of Accident Advice Helpline to get you in touch with an injury lawyer in Woodhurst.
How an injury lawyer in Woodhurst can help
So much can go wrong when two cars collide, and although it is preferable to hope for the best, sometimes this doesn’t happen.
- Bodily injuries – Sometimes, an uninsured driver can leave your body severely traumatised as the result of an accident and you could suffer from broken bones, internal bleeding or even spinal damage, all of which are very serious. Because your body houses your vital organs, any damage to it puts your life in jeopardy. Remember this when you speak to an injury lawyer in Woodhurst at Accident Advice Helpline.
- Head injuries – The head houses the brain, which you need to be capable of conscious thoughts, speaking, moving and eating. Any trauma caused to the brain may not necessarily kill you, but it will leave your body an empty shell, which will be hard for your family to deal with. The most common head injuries include concussion and whiplash, both of which are not very serious, but any head injury is dangerous.
- Limb injuries – These can sometimes be hugely problematic, and though they will not kill you, they may leave you unable to work, a problem that all agree is not ideal. In this case, having an injury lawyer in Woodhurst on your side means that you could be compensated for the injury, so you could get money even if you cannot work.
