Did you receive medical treatment?
After any type of South Bucks accident, it’s important to seek medical help. Although you may not think you’ve been badly hurt, injuries may not always appear straightaway and you could risk complications if you wait for a diagnosis.
In addition to this, you will need to have received medical treatment before you’ll be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
What can you claim for?
If your claim is successful, you should be awarded compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve experienced. This means that the severity of your injuries will affect the amount of compensation you’re able to obtain.
However, other things are taken into account as well and even minor injuries can have a big impact on your life. If you sustain whiplash as a result of a car crash, for example, it may take weeks or months for you to recover.
Depending on your job role, you may be unable to work during this time and you could lose income. When you make a claim after a South Bucks accident, it’s important to include any expenses you’ve had to pay for or income you’ve lost as you could receive additional compensation.
