When people think of road traffic accidents they tend to imagine nasty multi car pile ups on motorways, or cars wrapped around trees or lampposts. Of course, these sorts of accidents do occur, but there are other accidents that could entitle their victims to make road accident claims in Surrey.
Even minor accidents can lead to road accident claims in Surrey
It is important to bear in mind that when it comes to seeking compensation the only thing that matters is that you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. It does not matter if the accident was serious and dramatic, or if it was relatively mundane and ordinary. If you have been injured as a result of the actions of someone else, then you are just as entitled to seek compensation and justice.
For example, you can make road accident claims in Surrey if you have been involved in a low speed collision with another road user. Even under these circumstances the injuries you can sustain can be serious. Whiplash can be caused at any speed and can take weeks, or even months to resolve itself (as there is no actual treatment for this condition). During this time you are likely to be in pain and will not be able to drive. This can mean that you spend a small fortune on public transport or alternative travel. You may even have to take time off from work whilst you fully recover.
All of these things are going to have a significant impact on your life and this is why you are able to make a claim and secure compensation. As you can see, the nature of the accident itself is not an issue.
You might even have been a passenger in a vehicle that was involved in a crash. Perhaps, as a pregnant woman, you find that what appears to be a small shunt and injury could actually have major implications for you, and your unborn baby. These are all things that will be taken in to consideration by your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor as they move forward with your claim.
