Injuries caused by Car Accidents

Depending on how the car accident happens, the severity of the injuries sustained can vary tremendously.  The speed the cars are travelling when the car accident happens will have some bearing on the severity of the injuries sustained, as well as how well equipped the vehicles are with safety features such as seatbelts, airbags and side impact bars

You are obviously better protected if you are in a car accident if you are inside a vehicle such as a car, bus or lorry than you would be if you were a cyclist, motorcyclist or pedestrian.

Car Accident injuries can range from whiplash and cuts and bruises to broken bones, nasty lacerations and more serious injuries such as amputations, burns, spinal injuries, brain injuries and even fatalities.

If the injuries you have suffered as a result of the car accident are not serious, it is likely that your compensation claim will be conducted under the RTA Claims Process. The aim of this process is to encourage the other side to put forward an early admission of liability and for settlement to be achieved at an early stage by way of negotiation.   If you have suffered a more serious injury, your claim may be conducted by one of our specialist lawyers in our serious injury team.
