So you’re going about your everyday business, and out of nowhere you end up in an accident that is someone else’s fault – suffering an injury as a result.
Often, this can happen when you are driving. You may have pulled up at a set of traffic lights – waiting patiently to proceed when the lights turn green. Then, all of a sudden, you feel the sudden impact as someone bashes into your car from behind.
When this happens, the head can jerk, causing the neck’s tendons and ligaments to become damaged. This is whiplash. It often clears up uneventfully, but whatever the case is, you will need to rest.
While you are off work, why not think about picking up the phone to get a compensation claim started with solicitors in Brierley Hill?
What you can claim for
If solicitors in Brierley Hill successfully settle your claim, you will win an amount of money that will cover the injury itself, and reimburse you for the expenses you incur as a result of the accident.
So make sure that you collect evidence! A good way to do this is to start a file. Into this file, put your records of medical treatment, receipts of your expenditure, and photographs of your injuries.
If you have been in a car accident, you will also need to keep the contact details of any witnesses, and any other information that could be useful to solicitors in Brierley Hill.

What else you need to do
