The most common cause of West Dunbartonshire accident claims are road accidents. this is probably no surprise, as we live in a fast paced busy world and there are more cars on the road than ever before.
Most of the accident claims that we handle here at Accident Advice Helpline are for whiplash. Whiplash is a relatively minor injury that gets better over time. Whiplash happens when your neck and shoulders ‘whip’ forwards or backwards at pace, causing muscular pain that can linger for several weeks – and in some instances months.
A neck injury can be very debilitating, as it can stop us carrying out necessary daily tasks; driving, for example, can be agony.
Other common injuries include: fractured ribs, sprain/broken wrists, minor concussion, and lacerations. Hopefully your injury was a minor one and you are already on the mend, but you may still be owed compensation.
You can claim compensation for your injury providing that the someone else was to blame for your accident. In most cases, this is another driver, but the fault may lie with a council who failed to maintain a road surface; or a pedestrian who appeared from nowhere.
You can find out if you are entitled to claim right now by using the compensation calculator tool on the right side of this webpage.
You have three years from the date of your accident in which to file your claim for compensation.
