Car Accident Claims*
Being involved in a car accident is a traumatic experience whether you suffer a physical injury or psychological injury as a result of the negative experience. In some cases, you may be in a position to make a claim for compensation.
When the driver of a car is injured due to an accident, they are protected by their insurance company. Unfortunately, a pedestrian does not enjoy the same protection despite the fact that they may be left with serious injuries. In cases such as these you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. This compensation is awarded to help you cover the costs of your injuries and your time off work. You should be aware that you only have a certain amount of time in which you can make a claim.
Taxi Car Accidents
In most cases taxi operators maintain a very high standard of care for the patrons. As you are aware from media reports accidents do happen unfortunately. As a passenger you are much less likely to be paying attention to the traffic which unfortunately leaves your body exposed to greater injury. Taxi operators have a complete responsibility to ensure the health and safety of any patrons they carry. Again, in some cases, you may be in a position to make a claim for compensation.
A Whiplash is a neck injury which occurs due to forceful, rapid movement of the neck, like the motion of cracking of a whip. A Whiplash injury often occurs by car accidents involving rear-ending. It should be noted that whiplash may result from traumatic abuse and sporting and other physical accidents. Whiplash may be cured in a matter of months or it may have long lasting effects. Typical symptoms of whiplash may include neck pain, stiffness, restricted movement, headaches, tenderness, numbness, fatigue and dizziness.
