Car Accident Injuries

Car accidents are an unfortunate but inevitable occurrence when driving on busy UK roads. When you or a loved one is involved in a car accident, injuries are an outcome that you dread. However, car-accident injuries do occur frequently. They may be very minor, such as bruises and cuts, but can occasionally be serious, including whiplash, broken bones, spinal injury and even death.

If you or a loved one is involved in a car accident in which injury has been sustained, by either party to the accident, you should speak to a specialist Personal Injury solicitor.

A person injured in a car accident may claim for compensation to cover losses suffered as a result of the injury. To be successful it must be proved that someone else was at fault or negligent. Fault may be obvious in many occasions, such as where speeding or dangerous overtaking was involved. However, in many instances it may be difficult to establish precisely how an accident happened, whether external factors such as poorly maintained roads were involved, or to what extent each party may have contributed to an accident.

Where illegal driving, such as dangerous driving, driving a stolen vehicle, driving uninsured or driving while drunk or under the influence of drugs, was involved in a car accident involving injury, this may not only leave the driver open to prosecution by the police, but also affect any claims for compensation.
