Why Car Accident Claims Are So Common
Car accidents can be caused my all manner of reasons, the most common causes being speed, intoxication, inexperience, environmental factors; potholes, cracks in the road, faulty traffic lights, severe weather; snow, ice on the roads and so on. For whatever reason they happen, unfortunately they are more common than we might think.
The consequences of these accidents lead to many problems including physical or psychological injury, financial losses from the injury sustained through damage to your vehicle, or loss of earnings because of your injury, medical expenses and so on. Of course any of these problems can have a serious impact on your quality of life, which is why it is important to claim compensation and put right some of the damage.
Any kind of injury can occur as a result of a car accident, but the most common injuries occur to the back, neck and head. These types of injury are more prominent because of the way we are positioned when sitting in a car, and how we are restrained by our seatbelt. The jolt from sudden, high impact leaves the head, neck and back region vulnerable to damage: cuts, bruises, fractures, concussion and even brain damage can result from hitting the dashboard or steering wheel. However, the most common injury seen through the results of car accidents throughout the UK is whiplash. The neck muscles are damaged when they are suddenly hyper-extended from a relaxed position on impact of the collision. Whiplash can affect people for days, weeks, months, years and even for life. Each case is different but always extremely painful. As whiplash is the most common injury seen from car accidents, it comes as no surprise that it is the condition most commonly claimed for, making up to 70% of all car accident claims seen last year alone.
