Car accidents explained
Even minor car accidents can leave you with long-term injuries such as whiplash. Insurers may try to make you an early offer, but it’s important to take impartial legal advice before you accept. If someone else's negligence resulted in your injury, you should talk to a personal injury claims solicitor.
