Injured passengers in accidents
If you have been injured in a car accident at any time when you were the passenger, there is very little you can be blamed for.
- Broken ribs – if you wear your seatbelt (which you should according to law) and you are involved in a car crash, broken ribs are a very real danger. Though these are usually not extremely serious, the impact of the seatbelt on your chest can cause breakages, which in turn can pierce vital organs. In these cases, you need injury lawyers Ashford-in-the-Water on your side.
- Head injuries – many passengers have felt the terrible feeling of hitting their heads in car accidents, and though many have survived, they have had to live with problems such as brain bleeds, loss of memory and in some cases, even the loss of function of certain appendages or skills due to brain damage. This kind of situation is terrible and needs the support of a lawyer to receive compensation for what you have been through.
- Broken bones – these are always a risk in just about any car accident, but for a passenger they could be worse because they cannot brace themselves for impact. This means that at any point, they could be facing the wrong angle or be sitting in the wrong way and break anything from their arm to their hip. This is when the services of injury lawyers in Ashford-in-the-Water through Accident Advice Helpline are needed the most, since they are the only ones who, after the incident can help the victims find some sort of closure.
