If I have a case about a car accident.
Like any other personal injury, you may be able to make a car accident claim if you can prove that the other party who caused the accident and your injuries was negligent and was also at fault.
Proving legal fault in civil cases, such as car accident claims, is based only on the ‘balance of probabilities’. Even if you were partly to blame for the accident or the injuries you sustained (e.g. you were considered to be contributory negligent by not wearing a seat belt) it is still possible to make a claim.
Injuries sustained in car accidents can range from minor cuts and bruises to conditions which can be life-long or life-threatening. Shoulder and neck soft tissue injuries caused by a sudden impact are very common in a road traffic accident and while they are much less serious than a spinal cord injury, they can still be painful and debilitating.
However, with any car accident claim it is unwise to assume that an immediate, obvious, injury is the full extent of the damage. In some cases, the symptoms of a far more severe brain injury for example may not become apparent until weeks or months after a seemingly minor accident.
That’s why it is vital to seek medical attention immediately after a car accident, even if you think nothing is wrong, and make sure your chosen car accident solicitors have the expertise, practical experience and patience to handle your claim, usually on a No-Win-No-Fee basis.
