Auto accidents can be extremely traumatic and even minor accidents can cause physical and psychological injuries. If you are unlucky enough to be involved in a serious auto accident, it is likely that you will be eligible to make an auto accident claim for any injuries that you have sustained.
Am I entitled to make a serious auto accident claim?
To make a car accident claim, someone else must have caused your accident. The majority of car accident claims result from driver errors, such as pulling out of a junction without looking.
What types of injuries can I include in my claim?
You can include any physical or psychological injury in your claim, so long as you are able to provide medical evidence to support your claim. The most common injury sustained during a car accident is whiplash, which occurs when the force of the accident throws your neck backwards and forwards. However, you can claim for a wide range of injuries, including broken bones, lacerations and post-traumatic stress disorder.
If you have sustained an injury following a car accident, you must seek immediate medical attention. This will not only ensure that you receive timely medical treatment, but will also enable you to use the resulting medical record to proceed with your personal injury claim. In the absence of a medical record relating to your injuries, the law may prohibit you from claiming compensation.
Who pays out for a compensation claim?
All drivers must be insured so that they are covered in the event of an auto accident. Therefore, the negligent driver’s insurance company would pay your compensation.
