We at Accident Advice Helpline handle thousands of claims related to car accidents every year, so we have first-hand experience of their devastating physical and emotional effects.
A high proportion of these car accidents happen in the Portsmouth area. For anyone involved we advise you look into Portsmouth car accident claims and think about taking legal action.
The physical effects of car accidents
In most car accidents, whether minor or severe, you will sustain some form of injury. Likely injuries are as follows:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- And in the worst cases fatalities
The emotional effects of car accidents
Often the most damaging results of car accidents aren’t physical but emotional. Such effects are difficult to treat and can take a long period of time to recover from.
Some frequently seen emotional effects of car accidents include:
- Post-traumatic stress disorders
- Nightmares and sleep problems
- Heightened anxiety
- Phobias related to driving and travelling in general
From the above you can see how painful the consequences of road traffic accidents can be.
Both the physical and emotional effects may force victims to take sustained periods of time off work and they may require long-term treatment and medication. In turn then it follows that car accidents will also have financial repercussions as victims lose wages and pay out to aid their recovery.
For these reasons we strongly advise anyone affected to seek financial compensation through Portsmouth car accidents claims.
It is especially pertinent in these cases that victims receive some form of justice for the difficulties they have endured.
Cases involving fatalities
In the very worst situations car accidents can result in death.
If a family has lost a loved one then no amount of money will ease their suffering. However, a payout could help ease the financial burden that results from losing a household wage earner.
