Serious car accident injuries can have truly devastating consequences for the victim themselves and for their family.

There is no fixed time to do this and it takes as long as it needs to take.
How long will a personal injury lawyer take to sort out my claim if I am only slightly injured?
Even a mild or moderate injury can have a significant impact on your life. You may have to take some time off work or buy in extra childcare or help around the house. Keep all the receipts and records that you have for this so that you can submit them to your lawyer.
How long will a personal injury lawyer take to sort out my claim if I was the driver?
Car accidents can affect many people such as the driver, passengers and pedestrians. The characteristics of your injury can be influenced by where you were located in the car at the time of the collision. Drivers can hit the steering wheel or airbag as they are propelled forward. A steering wheel can cause crushing injuries to the chest and in some circumstances the airbag causes minor burns. The claims process will take all of this into account but you can only claim if the accident was not your own fault.
