Have you ever heard of Hubberts Bridge? Unless you live or work in Boston, Lincolnshire, the name will probably be new to you. Hubberts Bridge is a village, and you will find it over to the eastern side of the county. It’s exactly 100 miles from London, and since it is a village, it would indeed be a challenge to source a lawyer in Hubberts Bridge if the need arose.
As you might guess, the name of the village comes from the bridge that spans the local river. It is thought the existing bridge is the third to be placed in the spot. Fortunately, accidents aren’t very common on bridges or on any road crossings or river crossings, but you never know when you might need legal assistance following an accident of this kind.
Suffering injuries in a road accident
You’re safer in a car than you are on foot if something happens, but even a minor road accident can leave you nursing some painful injuries. If you are struck head-on by another vehicle, the combined speeds of the vehicles can be significant – even if you were both travelling at well under the speed limit.
You wouldn’t be surprised, therefore, to suffer from possible whiplash, or perhaps from bruising to your shoulder, sternum, and tummy, caused by the seat belt doing what it is supposed to do and keeping you in the car. Bruising, swelling, and discomfort would all be apparent very soon after the accident. If you have been in a car accident of any kind, in any location, you should always take care to seek medical help. Being checked over is a very good idea, even if you feel relatively fine. Sometimes, the adrenaline released in an accident can prevent you from feeling too bashed up. The following day, however, it can be a different story.
Having medical evidence of your injuries is also vital if you know the other party was at fault for causing the accident to start with. This evidence can be used to prove how you were injured, and how bad the injuries were. It will be required if you go on to try and make a compensation claim.
