Over 3 million accidents happen in the UK every year and that equates to over 8200 accidents happening every single day. Some of theses accidents will involve innocent victims who were injured in accidents that were not their fault. Of these there will be some who do not survive the accident, some who receive serious injuries, some who sustain a whiplash injury in Castle Cary, and thankfully some who suffer no more than a few cuts and bruises.
If you sustain a whiplash injury in Castle Cary, a brain injury, a facial injury or any other type of injury in an accident that was caused through the negligence or recklessness of someone else, you may be entitled to claim compensation. That is the legal position in the UK, providing your injuries needed medical attention and the accident happened within the last three years.
Why you Can Claim Compensation for a Whiplash Injury in Castle Cary
If you are injured in an accident that was not your fault, your life can be in turmoil. Sometimes this is a temporary situation until you have healed, but for many victims their life is changed forever.
You are not in this situation by choice, but because of the actions of someone else, and you should be financially compensated for the pain, suffering, trauma and lifestyle changes you have been caused. No amount of money can turn back the clock till before the accident, but it can help life a little easier and help take away the extra financial burdens an accident can place on a victim.
7 out of 10 victims shy away from making a claim, which does not really make sense. Many of those victims would have no hesitation in expecting someone to pay for damage caused to their property, so why is it such a problem to request payment for damage caused to themselves?
Settlement of the Claim
There are many reasons cited for this, one of them being that victims are concerned of the stress they would cause by making someone pay them a large some of money in compensation. In reality this would be rare as most accident situation are covered by insurance, and it is whoever provided the guilty party with insurance cover that settles the claim.
In fact, these days there are not many types of insurance that do not include third party cover, but the insurers to not give us this cover for free. It is included in the premiums we pay each year, even in most household policies in case someone is injured in your home.
