A whiplash injury in Haydock that has been caused by a driver that fled the scene
There is no denying that suffering a whiplash injury in Haydock because of a car crash can be distressing enough. Not only are you likely to be shocked and in pain, but I can be extremely unnerving too. Nonetheless, this becomes even worse for those that witness the perpetrator of the incident then fled from the scene.
Panic sets in! What am I supposed to do? How am I going to make them pay for causing the crash? Will I be able to claim compensation even though I do not know who caused the accident?
There is no need to worry. You will still be able to make a claim. These personal injury cases are known as untraced driver’s compensation claims. They make it possible for you to receive compensation without knowing who caused the accident.
After all, it is clear that it was not your fault and it was indeed the fault of someone else’s. Therefore, you should not miss out on compensation just because the driver in question did the unthinkable. Nonetheless, what does prove to be extremely valuable in these instances are witness statements.
Thus, even though you may be shocked after the accident it is imperative to try and get the contact details from anyone who witnessed it. Their accounts are crucial.
Once you have done this the next thing you need to do is take a trip to the doctor. This is obviously vital for medical reasons, yet you also need to see a medical professional if you want to have any chance of claiming.
