    Road traffic accident compensation in Preston


    Do you need to claim road traffic accident compensation in Preston?

    When people are involved in road traffic accidents they can suffer various types of injuries. Although modern vehicles generally feature numerous safety devices to try and stop people getting hurt in the event of an accident, they can’t always prevent drivers and passengers from being injured.

    For example, if you’re involved in a collision, airbags may prevent you from suffering serious injuries but you could still sustain cuts, lacerations, bruises or even whiplash. In some cases, people suffer broken and fractured bones as a result of car accidents.

    Although these aren’t uncommon injuries, they can be extremely painful and you may need urgent medical attention. Even if you don’t think that you’ve been badly hurt, it is vital that you seek some type of medical help.

    Often, injuries don’t present themselves straightaway and if you’re in shock, it could mask the pain of an injury. By seeking medical help you could ensure that you receive the appropriate treatment and speed up the recovery process. In addition to this, you will need to have received some type of medical treatment if you plan on making a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Preston.

    How have your injuries affected your life?

    The length of your recovery process will depend on the type of injuries you’ve sustained and the treatment you’re prescribed. If you have sustained a broken leg, for example, you could require surgery and you may need to spend weeks in a cast. This would obviously affect your life quite considerably but most people would make a full recovery from this type of injury.

    However, if your injuries are going to affect your life permanently, you may find it even more important to obtain compensation. If you’re unable to return to work, for example, you may want to claim back the loss of earnings you’re experiencing, as well as obtaining compensation for your injuries.

    Could you make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline?

    If you have sustained an injury which wasn’t your fault and you obtained medical treatment for it, there’s a good chance that we will be able to help you to make a claim. However, you will need to take legal action within three years of getting hurt in order to be able to obtain compensation for your injuries.
