Both by people who have been the victim of a car accident in Wychavon, and those that haven’t, we at Accident Advice Helpline are often asked about the risk of road traffic accidents: who is at risk of getting into an accident and suffering injuries – and why?
Everyone – but certain groups in particular
Of course, theoretically, everyone could be at risk of getting into an accident. But some people are more likely than others to be involved in a crash of some kind:
- Young drivers
- Older drivers
- People driving for work
This doesn’t mean that if you’re a middle-aged car driver going to the shops in your spare time, you’ll never have an accident – it means that you’re not at as much risk as the above groups.
Have you been the victim of a car accident in Wychavon?
Of course, all it takes is one short moment for something to happen. Accidents can be caused by other drivers, through their carelessness or deliberate actions, and if you’re on the receiving end, there’s little you can do.
Later, though, you could claim compensation for what happened – and if you win your case, you will receive a payout. This will be for the accident and injury itself, plus any expenses you have incurred as a result of the accident.
The rules about claiming
Where road traffic accidents have been caused by someone else, usually another driver, you could be eligible to make a claim.
You can check your eligibility by going to the Accident Advice Helpline website and taking our 30 second test, which is easy to use – you will get your answer, and then you can think about whether you would like to proceed if you do qualify.
Accident Advice Helpline can get you started with your claim straight away, because we have a 24/7 hotline, which is fully staffed by professional, friendly advisors.

The first step will be to give your details to the advisor who takes your call. They will listen carefully to you and talk you through the procedures involved in making your claim.
