    Injury lawyers in Colerne

    The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has a lot going for it – and one of those things is Colerne. Colerne is a picturesque village in the Cotswolds which is idyllic for working, living or visiting. However, when public transport doesn’t run regularly and more and more people are taking to their cars, there are bound to be accidents even in an area as beautiful as this.

    Car accidents can leave the victims with devastating injuries including paralysis and brain injuries. They often, at the very least, leave people with injuries that mean they cannot work for extended periods of time. If you have had a car accident and are looking for personal injury lawyers in Colerne or anywhere in the UK, Accident Advice Helpline can assist.

    Personal injury claims resulting from car accidents

    If you are involved in a car accident that is serious enough for personal injury compensation to be required, it can have many long-lasting effects. They don’t have to be physical either – mental health can be affected by a traumatic event like this as well. If you were the driver or a passenger in a car (or coach, bus, van or other type of vehicle) that was involved in a collision, you may have a compensation claim against the insurance company of the second vehicle, assuming the second vehicle was responsible for the accident. Or the claim could be made against a third party if it is deemed that an external factor caused the accident.

    To be injured in a car accident you don’t have to have been a driver or passenger – pedestrians, cyclists and motor cyclists who are struck by road vehicles can also claim compensation. This type of claim would be made against the insurance company of the vehicle that hit you. Although whiplash is one of the most common injuries resulting from a car accident, there are many others that can occur.

    It will greatly improve your case if you are able to take contact information and registration numbers after the accident. This isn’t always possible, of course, and if the other driver has no insurance or leaves the scene of the accident, the police should be called.
