If you happen to be one of the scores of individuals to have sustained an injury in a road accident, then it’s perfectly possible that you will be qualified to make a road accident claim in Yateley, or wherever else you are.
Perhaps a little surprisingly, there has been an unprecedented rise in motor-based injury claim cases over recent years, with more and more people lodging complaints. Although numerous injuries can occur as a result of road traffic accidents, people often sustain whiplash due to these types of incidents.
Making a road accident claim in Yateley
Despite being one of the most common injuries sustained on the roads of the United Kingdom, knowledge the symptoms, causes and implications is pretty thin on the ground.
Whiplash is a condition characterised by sharp and violent pain and stiffness in the neck and upper back. Often, the pain associated with whiplash doesn’t begin immediately and people may not realise that they’ve been hurt straightaway.
However, it’s important to seek medical assistance as swift medical care can prevent symptoms from worsening and stop more serious injuries being misdiagnosed.
Taking legal action
If you’ve suffered whiplash, or any other type of injury, you may want to make a road accident claim in Yateley. In order to do this, you’ll need to show that someone or something else was responsible for the incident.
Providing you didn’t cause the accident and you received medical treatment, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to make a claim. However, you should be aware of the time limits which are imposed on claimants.
In most instances, you’ll need to take action within 3 years’ of getting hurt so it’s important to remember this or you could risk missing out on your chance to claim compensation.
