If you have suffered an injury in a road accident then you may have grounds to claim for compensation. Despite the rise in petrol prices and the fact that people are thinking twice about taking their cars on short runs, there has been a rise in the number of vehicle injury claims.
One of the most common injuries sustained in a car accident is whiplash. It is estimated that there are 1,500 reports of whiplash injury in the UK every day and now there are more stringent tests to ascertain if a person is a genuine sufferer of the condition.
This means that if you have been involved in an accident and think there are grounds for motor injury claims, then you will have to have immediate medical treatment and you will have to satisfy insurers that you really have suffered whiplash.
However, if you have been involved in a collision and have suffered more serious injuries which have required hospitalisation or a period of time off work, then vehicle injury claims can be pursued.
Compensation for vehicle injury claims
Compensation for vehicle injury claims covers the pain, suffering and emotional distress suffered because of injuries, the cost of medical treatment and the expenses incurred such as taxi fares to an outpatients department. So you will need to keep all receipts, so that the motor injury claims process will go more smoothly.
If you have suffered a serious injury, such as a spinal injury which affects your ability to move, then compensation will take into account the amount of money it will take for a personal care assistant and the cost of making modifications to your home, so that it is easier for you to cope.
