Car Injury Compensation - Things You Should Know

No matter how minor your injury may seem you may be able to claim compensation for a car accident if the accident is wholly or partly the fault of someone else. This may be the other driver but fault may also be established against a Local Authority in respect of defects in the road.

If you were unlucky enough to have been involved in a car accident which involved an uninsured driver or a hit and run driver, we can still help you receive personal injury compensation.

If you have been involved in a car accident and want to make a personal injury claim for compensation, we can help. We’re specialists in car accident claims and have successfully secured the maximum available car accident compensation for many satisfied clients.

The word ‘accident’ is something of a misnomer. Most car accidents are in fact someone’s fault. Car accidents can be caused by a number of factors including excessive speed, tiredness, lack of concentration, lack of care or even reckless, dangerous driving, or drivers under the influence of alcohol and drugs.


Whatever degree of physical or psychological injuries have been suffered by you or a loved one, our role is to ensure compensation is awarded at a level that will cover your medical and care needs, not just for today but also any future medical expenses.

Your injuries may be relatively small or they could be more serious involving surgery, occupational therapy, rehabilitation and on-going drug treatment.

Your claim is of vital importance because it will provide the means to obtain the treatment and support you are entitled to and need, for as long as you need it.


In a car accident compensation claim your first consideration is likely to be about funding any medical treatment.

Some road accidents involve expensive losses in relation to damage to vehicles and property. We know how important your vehicle can be, which is why we’ll work hard to secure compensation for you.

Many of our car accident clients find themselves off work for some time. We see it as a priority to establish financial stability for anyone making a car accident compensation claim.


Often whiplash symptoms appear several hours or more after an accident. While many of the symptoms of whiplash are short lived some may be longer lasting.

Whiplash is a neck injury that occurs when a sudden movement of the head – forward, backward or sideways – overstretches the ligaments in the neck often occurring as a result of a car accident. Whiplash symptoms can include:


  • Stiffness of the neck and a temporary loss of movement in the neck
  • Pain ranging from relatively mild discomfort to intense pain
  • Muscle spasms, pain in the shoulders and headaches
  • Dizziness, vertigo or ringing in the ears


The symptoms of whiplash can be particularly difficult for those with physical jobs that involve lifting or carrying. Driving can also be difficult due to the turning and rotational movement required.


Whiplash injury compensation is important because it helps you to restore the balance and get back to normal, physically and financially. To cope with and get past the pain and physical damage of whiplash you may need physiotherapy, which can be costly.

Our personal injury solicitors can advise you on the type of care, support and compensation that you’ll need.
