Kettering car accident


Kettering is quite a familiar place name within England. It is the name of a town to be found in Northamptonshire, and it has a population of about 67,000. This makes it quite a big town in actuality, so it is perhaps not surprising that the occasional Kettering car accident might happen here, just as it may in other towns throughout the whole of the UK.

Being in a car accident is a frightening experience, even if you don’t get much warning at all that it is about to happen. If you are driving sensibly and with your full concentration on the road, you may still not see another driver coming towards you from the side – especially if this is at speed and they crash right into you. Of course, car accidents happen in many different ways, and while airbags can protect you to an extent, they may still leave you with injuries.

What kinds of injuries might result in a car accident?

Seatbelts are life-savers – there is no doubt about that. However, they can cause injuries of their own as you can suffer soft tissue bruising and swelling from the force of the impact. Additionally, you might get whiplash, not to mention bumps and bruises if you are flung around in the car a bit and you bump your elbows or knees against something inside the car. It’s quite possible to end up with injuries and have no idea of exactly how they happened.

Minor injuries won’t take long to heal, but you may be left feeling as if you have been inside a washing machine for a period of time. You may also find there are things you cannot do initially, although this may soon return to normal.

What should you do regarding making a claim?

Once the shock wears off and you take stock of your situation, you may well start thinking of the likelihood of making a claim. Was someone else to blame? Did you suffer injuries you did nothing to deserve? Could the accident have been prevented?
