Every year in a busy town such as Stevenage there are hundreds of car accidents. Some are serious; others less so, but in those instances where compensation is appropriate, it’s important that you understand your rights. This article will offer you more information about how to claim for a road traffic accident, and how to find the right lawyer for you in your location.
Road accident stats
After years of climbing, traffic figures on our roads are becoming static – partly because the cost of petrol has become pricer than liquid gold. And recent figures show the number of accidents are coming down. Even so personal injury claims are on the rise.
The argument coming from the insurance companies is a pretty simple one – they feel that people are making too many claims for injuries which do not require compensation. For evidence they point out that the most common type of claim is for things such as whiplash, which while highly unpleasant is not always permanent.
However the true reason behind this rise is that people are becoming more informed and people are finding out that injuries they had previously thought were not serious enough to qualify for compensation are in fact bad enough.
It might also be that the financial pressures are growing on people. If you’re forced off work these days an employer is less likely to provide sick pay to keep you from sliding into debt. We often also tend to operate at a level which is closer to break even; we do not have the reserves of savings to fall back on if things go wrong that we may have done in the past.
Naturally, therefore, people are more likely to claim compensation if their finances are stretched, and even the less serious injuries can cause significant problems in people’s lives.
