Claiming Compensation For A Car Accident That Wasn't Your Fault!

Jan 8, 2008
Have you been involved in a car accident or road traffic accident that wasn't your fault and you've suffered mental and physical injuries as result of this accident. If so you have a legal and civil right to claim compensation from the other party.

A car accident can be very serious; you may be the driver of the car or a passenger in the car but you may also be on a bus, or in a lorry. If you're not wearing a seatbelt you are more likely to receive more serious injuries as well as the possibility of being thrown through the windscreen. You should always wear a seatbelt however young or old you are it's a legal requirement by the driver to make sure all passengers wear their seatbelts if they don't and the police pull you over the driver will be fined as well as the passengers not wearing seatbelts.

The injuries you may receive are more likely to be physical but people forget how a car accident can also scar the injured persons mentally. They may be scared to go outside, let alone go in a car. The most popular physical injuries a person may receive from being in a car accident include:

* Whiplash
* Broken Bones
* Cuts and Bruises
* Back and Neck Injuries
* Internal Bleeding
* Internal Injuries
* Head Injuries

Any of the above can be serious especially those of back, neck, brain and internal injuries. You may never fully recover from those injuries and you may require medical attention and drugs for the rest of your life. All this involves money and you shouldn't have to suffer from loss of earnings if you're unable to work whilst recovering or even work at all. If you've received serious injuries you may never be able to go back to your job and therefore you will lose your income, this is serious as your income will probably be covering your mortgage or rent as well as food shopping and other bills.

You shouldn't suffer in silence, you shouldn't have to go into debt because of the accident and you shouldn't have to pay your medical costs. If your accident has happened in the last 3 years and it wasn't your fault then why not consider making a claim against the other party.

If the other party is at fault it's your legal and civil right to claim compensation from them. This compensation will payout any loss of earnings you've suffered from or will continue to suffer from in the future, medical costs and also the suffering mentally and physically you have been caused from this car accident.

You should find a solicitor who specializes in Road Traffic Accident Compensation Claims, as they will know how to get the compensation payout you deserve. If you think you cannot afford to make a claim why not try a No Win No Fee solicitor. They will take on your case for free if they think it has a very good chance of winning. If your case is successful you will receive the full amount of compensation granted and your solicitor will recover their legal fees and costs from the other party's insurance company. If your case is unsuccessful you won't have lost anything as you still don't pay a penny in costs to your solicitor. So what have you got to lose, nothing but you may have a lot to gain, so why wait?
