Road traffic accidents are a very stressful and traumatic experience for all those involved, whether you are a passenger, driver, cyclist or pedestrian. At least 80% of road traffic accidents are caused by human error. If you have been injured as a result of such an accident we will be able to help you to claim compensation for your injuries.
We have been helping the victims of road traffic accidents for over fifteen years and through experience it has become apparent that the injuries sustained are seldom apparent to their full extent, or at all, immediately following the accident. All too often we have dealt with people who after turning down medical attention following an accident awake the next morning crippled with pain. In some instances people attend fracture clinics and are told there is nothing wrong only to find in six weeks time that there is a fracture.
This is because often the fracture will not show up on the x rays for a few weeks. Even if your injury is not serious, or you feel that you have been injured at all it is important to seek medical attention straight away. Not only does this provide the opportunity for treatment of injuries that you may not otherwise have noticed immediately but it also provides medical evidence that can be invaluable in your claim for compensation for your injuries.
Were you, a family member or someone in your vehicle injured in a car accident? You can count on our car accident claims department to provide the guidance and support you need to initiate your recovery.
Hopefully a car accident will never happen to you but if it does contact us on 01-6622822 now.
