Should I make a claim following a road traffic accident?
If you have never been involved in a road traffic accident before you may be unsure as to whether you should make a claim, and how you should go about it.
Even the most minor of accidents can cause untold stress, from the emotional response to the administration involved; add into that physical injury and you realise that the negative effects of a road traffic accident are far-reaching.
Making a personal injury claim is a way of helping to put you back into the same position as you were before the accident, as far as is possible.
Obviously, money cannot solve everything – but where you have been left worse off due to a road traffic accident that was not your fault, whether financially, physically or psychologically, compensation can be helpful. There are some very strong reasons for making a claim:
If you have suffered a physical injury in a road traffic accident, such as whiplash, you may need physiotherapy to treat it. Unfortunately, NHS waiting lists can often be long when you urgently need help, and the cost of private treatment can feel prohibitive. This can also be the case where an accident has left you with anxiety or psychological trauma which would benefit from treatment such as counselling or CBT.
When you make a claim, one of the first things that we will do is to assess your injuries and make sure that you have access to any treatment that you need to help your recovery. This is usually funded by the insurance company of the person at fault, meaning that you can begin treatment without having to worry about how you will pay for it.
If you are injured and unable to work for any length of time following a road traffic accident, you may suffer due to loss of earnings, or other out of pocket expenses as a result. Compensation is designed to make sure that you do not suffer financially as a result of someone else’s mistake.
Your quality of life
If your quality of life has suffered in any way as a result of a road traffic or bike accident, you should be compensated. If you are suddenly unable to do any of the things that you previously could, whether that be basic household tasks, or your usual hobbies or leisure activities, a personal injury claim is designed to compensate you.
Any payment that you receive represents the recognition of the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of another driver’s carelessness. You are legally entitled to recompense where you have been disadvantaged in this way; while we understand that money isn’t everything, it can be one less thing to worry about at an already stressful time.
