Why do people make road accident claims in Teignbridge? That’s a common question from people who might have had minor accidents on the roads or who may be lucky enough to have never had a bump so they don’t understand the compensation procedure.
The actual reasoning behind the number of people making road accident claims in Teignbridge is because they are both entitled to do so and well within their legal rights to pursue a claim for compensation based on the injuries they sustained because of the actions of another road user.
When you’re involved in any kind of accident on the roads around the UK, whether it’s in Teignbridge or another part of the country; it can be a difficult time.
Tough conversations from tough situations
You have to worry about calling the emergency services and your insurance company and, of course, receive any medical treatment either at the scene or in hospital. You then have to factor in your professional and social life with a boss to inform of your absence and a partner to tell that you’ve had an accident.
All of these conversations can be much harder to have when you’re not at fault for the crash. Drivers who misjudge the speeds of oncoming vehicles while they try to overtake a slow-moving vehicle or who pull out from a junction into the side of another road user can cause serious, even life changing or threatening injuries to innocent people.
Injuries sustained on the roads can range from muscular problems like whiplash, caused when the head is thrown forwards, jolting the muscles in the neck, shoulders and back; to more serious conditions like broken bones or concussion and even more severe problems.
Modern vehicles are all very well equipped and packed with modern safety features designed to keep drivers and passengers as safe as possible, but there is no way of preventing accidents from happening.
