    Vehicle insurance claims


    Vehicle insurance claims

    There are potential claims for just about any kind of injury that results from a car accident. These stem from mild whiplash to things that are more catastrophic, and there are solicitors who are going to help with the claims for all of them.  Below are some of the common injuries that are claimed by people who have been in an accident.

    Whiplash vehicle insurance claims

    Physically, the kinds of injuries that are suffered in a car accident are nearly limitless but the most common kind of injury’s whiplash. This usually happens when someone is rear-ended or they have been t-boned. It’s something that takes the form of an injury to the soft tissue in the neck and back.  Those who have it have a lot of discomfort.  Those who have this kind of injury should be treated since it can be a problem for a long amount of time. Although this seems like something that is really minor, it’s really painful and it can really affect the way that you function each day in a significant way.

    Serious injury vehicle insurance claims

    Sadly, when an accident happens at a higher speed it can cause a really serious injury. People are able to claim for really serious injuries, and this includes even death. But these kinds of injuries are the ones that leave people unable to work or take care of themselves.  When someone has suffered a really serious injury, it’s a good idea for them to find a solicitor since they are going to have the experience that the person needs to help them with their case. These kinds of cases often will go on long and they can be really complex.

    Psychological Illness vehicle insurance claims

    Even though you may not have been injured physically, you may have suffered from psychological shock. If you’re the primary victim and you directly participated in the accident, you are able to claim for any kind of psychological condition that is medically recognized and that you developed because of the accident. Just like with the physical injuries, it’s required that you can provide evidence of the problems through an expert. If you witnessed a really bad accident but you weren’t in danger yourself, it’s unlikely you are able to claim because you were one of the secondary victims. Yet if you’re really close to the person, or if the person was related to you, you may be able to claim and it’s a good idea to talk to a solicitor.

    Whether you have been injured physically or psychologically from your accident, you want to think about getting a solicitor to help you with your case.  Sometimes it can be hard to find the right solicitor and you can get easily frustrated. If you want to have some help with finding your solicitor, we can easily help you with it.  Contact an advisor on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
