The village of Storrington in Horsham, West Sussex lies at the foot of the South Downs. With a population of 4,600 people in 2006, the village benefits from good transport links via road on the A283. With so many people commuting to work in the nearby area, the roads can get busy, particularly at peak commuting times in the morning and early evening. Whilst you can drive safely on the roads, you have no control over other people’s driving, which means there is the potential for you to be injured by a negligent driver. If this has happened to you, then we could help you to make a personal injury claim – there is no need to search for a local personal injury lawyer in Storrington.
What injuries have you sustained in your accident?
Road traffic accident injuries can vary from minor to life-changing injuries, and it generally depends on the speed of the collision and what vehicle you were travelling in. You’re more likely to sustain serious injuries as a cyclist, motorcyclist or pedestrian than you are when in a car, although high-speed collisions can still lead to fatalities or life-changing injuries. Here are some of the most common injuries which Accident Advice Helpline has dealt with claims for since we opened in 2000:
- Whiplash – one of the most common road traffic accident injuries
- Back injuries
- Strains and sprains
- Cuts and bruises
- Facial injuries
- Facial nerve injuries
- Eye injuries
- Crush injuries such as broken ribs
- Ligament and tendon injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Head injuries such as concussion, skull fractures or brain injuries
You could claim compensation for any of these types of injuries, and the amount you could receive will depend on the severity of your injuries, as well as several other factors. To get an idea of what you could be entitled to claim, you can take the 30-second test on our website. Generally speaking, the more serious your injuries and the impact they have had on your life, the more compensation you could find you are entitled to receive.
