Road traffic accidents in Newton Mearns of any description, whether a minor bump or a severe collision, you’ll know just how inconvenient and troublesome it can be.
Every year, road traffic accidents in Newton Mearns happen, and they have consequences.
Road traffic accidents in Newton Mearns
The most obvious results of road traffic accidents in Newton Mearns are the physical injuries and the damage to your vehicle. Even some easily repairable damage can cause inconvenience to you – you will have to deal with the insurance company and the garage.
The physical effects can range from injuries such as whiplash to severe head injuries and multiple fractures – some people who survive road traffic accidents are extremely lucky to have done so, and they might require a long period of care and rehabilitation to regain their previous physical condition (if ever they do).
Financial problems can occur, too
On top of the physical effects of road traffic accidents in Newton Mearns, there are the financial problems, which happen because of income loss and expenses.
Income loss may occur where the victim of an accident has to take time off work. If you’ve got sick pay, and the time off work required is covered by full pay, then you won’t notice any reduction in your wages. But if you’re not working for an employer with a particularly generous sick pay policy, then you might find you lose pay.
Expenses, on the other hand, happen because you need to pay for services you wouldn’t otherwise need. If you have children, for example, you might normally take them to school and pick them up – but how can you do that if your leg is in plaster and you can’t drive or even get a bus for the time being?
Faced with this problem, you might hire a childminder – and of course, they will charge a fee.
How to make a claim
If you’re suffering any of the problems described above, why not consider making a claim? You should be eligible to do so if the accident you were in was caused by the other driver, and you were injured in the accident.
