Every year, at Accident Advice Helpline, we receive many enquiries from people who want to claim compensation for road traffic accidents in Denbighshire, in which they have sustained injuries.
Of the claims we deal with, the time taken for clients to receive their settlements varies. Why is this?
Every accident is different
Accidents aren’t neat, predictable things, unfortunately. If they were, it would make our lives easier and a lot happier. For a start, it would be far easier to prevent them from happening!
But there’s no telling when an accident will happen, and how complicated it will be.
If someone drives into the back of your car, you might not have a car in front of you, in which case, there are only two vehicles involved. On the other hand, you might be behind another vehicle, and end up hitting it with your car as a result of the impact you’ve received. The outcome: three cars involved.
You also don’t know how fast the car that bumps into yours will be travelling. If they’re going at 5 mph, you might be startled and get whiplash, which requires little treatment.
But if they’re speeding around a bend at 40 and not paying attention to the fact that you’re waiting at some roadworks, your car could be written off and you might end up with some serious injuries.
All this affects the process of claiming
These things, along with other factors, affect how quickly a claim proceeds. The more complicated it is, the longer it might take. There could be several agencies involved, and each agency might be awaiting information from others. Procedures have to be followed, and different organisations work in different ways.
But the good news is that claims for road traffic accidents in Denbighshire, if they are successful, will result in payouts for clients – so it’s well worth the wait.
