Have you been injured whilst driving?
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, you may feel some degree of responsibility, even if you weren’t the person at fault. Often, innocent drivers replay the accident in their minds, trying to decide if there is anything they could have done different to prevent the accident from occurring.
This can be particularly disturbing if you were carrying passengers at the time of the accident. If they were hurt too, you may feel that you’re responsible for their injuries, even if you did nothing wrong.
Fortunately, many road traffic accidents are subject to an independent investigation so this may help to put your mind at rest. In addition to this, taking legal action could help you to confirm that you weren’t at fault and that you couldn’t have done anything to avoid the accident.
Are you treating car accident injuries?
Before you start treating car accident injuries yourself, it’s important to get medical help and advice. If your knee appears swollen, for example, you may be tempted to put some ice on it and rest it for a few days. However, this could cause more damage in the long–term.
If you don’t get appropriate help before treating car accident injuries, you won’t have a firm diagnosis and you could miss out on necessary treatment. Often, claimants who delay getting medical help find that they face a longer recovery period.
Accessing medical assistance is also important if you plan on making a claim for injury compensation. In addition to being able to prove that you didn’t cause the accident, you’ll need to show that you received medical help before you’ll be able to obtain compensation for your injuries.
Making a no-win, no-fee* compensation claim
When car accidents occur, many people worry about the financial implications. Although the cost of your vehicle repairs should be covered by an insurance company, you could face other expenses.
However, taking legal action doesn’t have to be one of these unexpected and unwanted expenses. Rather than paying anything upfront, why not make a no-win, no-fee* compensation claim with us?
