    Test Valley vehicle collision claim


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Test Valley

    If you think that you have good grounds on which to base a Test Valley vehicle collision claim, then we at Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you get your claim off the ground. Why not call us on our freephone number below for expert legal advice about your potential claim?

    Test Valley vehicle collision claim

    In order to be eligible to make a Test Valley vehicle collision claim, or any other personal injury compensation claim for that matter, you have to be able to prove, not only that you were not responsible for your accident, but also that another person was to blame.

    Immediately after a road traffic accident, if people are injured, the police should be called to the scene so that they can investigate the causes of it. When their investigations have ended, they will write an accident report, which could prove to be very useful if you are to file a road traffic accident claim.

    Naturally, when someone is injured, you should call an ambulance so that they can have medical attention, either from paramedics at the scene of the accident, or at the nearest appropriate hospital.

    In order to make a personal injury compensation claim, your medical report is required so that you can prove that you had treatment for your injuries after the accident. It will also detail your injuries and their severity, and so the amount of compensation you may be awarded for your pain, distress and suffering can be calculated if your claim is successful. Of course, this is just one part of the total compensation you could receive.

    Compensation for injuries

    Personal injury compensation can be made for general and special damages. If your personal injury claim is successful you could be awarded special damages which would cover loss of earnings, both past and future, medical care and treatment, (again both past and future), as well as expenses directly related to your injury, although you would have to have kept receipts. Such expenses might be prescription charges, taxi fares to and from the hospital and so on. If you sustained life-changing injuries then special damages could be awarded so that adjustments could be made to your home so that your new needs are catered for.

    General damages are awarded for the pain, distress and suffering caused to you by your injuries and for loss of amenity, for example you might not be able to do a hobby that you used to enjoy before your accident.
