There’s no doubt about it: car accidents can be very stressful. You lose your car, either for a while as it is repaired, or permanently, if it is written off. You might not be provided with a courtesy car, and you could struggle to scrape together enough money for a good replacement vehicle.
If you get injured, things can be even worse – especially if it’s due to someone else’s negligence. You may be unable to work, which could mean loss of earnings, and you could need to use taxis or buses to get regular medical treatment.
Whiplash is perhaps the commonest injury sustained in a car accident. The neck’s tendons and ligaments are damaged because of the head movement which occurs as a result of the sudden impact. Even a minor car accident can cause whiplash, as well as other damage – both physical and psychological.
Finding a personal injury lawyer in Ogmore-by-sea
Luckily, Accident Advice Helpline can take some of the strain out of the aftermath of your car crash. We can assign you a personal injury lawyer in Ogmore-by-sea so that you can make a claim for compensation. If successful, you will receive payment for the injury, as well as for loss of earnings and expenses such as travel and childcare.
All you need to do is call 0800 689 0500 from your landline or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile. You can also text “claim365” to 80100. You can speak to one of our friendly advisors who will help you all they can.

What else should I do?
At the scene, get as much evidence as you can. If you have a camera or your mobile phone can take pictures, get snapping – evidence of your injuries, damage to the car, damage to street furniture, and the state of the road conditions will all help a great deal.
Make sure you get people’s contact details, too. This means the other party or parties involved, but also any witnesses to the accident. Keep a file of records of your medical treatment and receipts for any expenses you incur.
There is no obligation to proceed with a claim with a personal injury lawyer in Ogmore-by-sea, but if you do, all of this evidence will help. All our lawyers work on a 100% no win no fee* basis, and our commitment to customer service has won Accident Advice Helpline the endorsement of Esther Rantzen, a noted campaigner for consumer rights.
