    A vehicle accident injury is any injury that is suffered in an accident that involves a vehicle. If you have a vehicle accident injury and the accident was not your fault then you may be able to claim compensation. Accident Advice Helpline, a compensation provider that has been established for over 10 years, can help with this. Some further details are given below.

    Vehicle accident injury – the vehicle

    When you ring Accident Advice Helpline on their 24/7 hotline, have the details of the vehicle that was involved in the accident to hand. You will be able to participate in a unique 30 second test which will indicate whether your vehicle accident injury claim for compensation is likely to be successful. Vehicles can include:

    • Cars
    • Vans
    • Buses
    • Minibuses
    • Heavy Goods Vehicles
    • Trains
    • Trams
    • Motorcycles

    When these vehicles are involved in an accident, there are several categories of person that can suffer an injury. They include:

    • Drivers of vehicles
    • Front seat passengers in cars

    Vehicle accident injury – the injury

    Once you are allocated a personal injury lawyer who is an expert in vehicle accident injury claims you will be asked to provide some further information about your injury. You may also need to attend one local appointment with a medical expert who will prepare a report on your injuries. Apart from that, your case will probably be handled over the telephone. You are unlikely to have to go to court or to go to the lawyers offices for meetings.

    A vehicle accident injury can include any of the following:
