Injuries from road traffic accidents:
A common injury from a road traffic accident is Whiplash, which is caused by a sudden and unexpected jolt, for example from your car being hit from behind. Some common symptoms for whiplash include neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, back pain, loss of feeling in arms or hands and dizziness. It is advisable to seek medical advice from your GP or local hospital as soon as possible following any injury.
Even if the driver at fault is a family member or friend you can still make a personal injury claim, as all legal actions will be directed at their respective insurance company, not them personally.
If you have been the victim of a ‘hit and run’ or injured by an uninsured driver, then you may still be able to claim compensation.
