Bradford-on-Avon Car Accident Claims Solicitors – No Win No Fee Claims Guide
If you have been involved in a road accident in Bradford-on-Avon, then there is significant legal legislation which exists to help you obtain compensation for your accident. Road accident compensation is paid to help cover the financial cost of any damage to property and injury to your person which may have resulted in you having to take time off work.
Personal injury claims can be made up to three years after an accident so if the long-term effects of an injury sustained in a road traffic accident have only just become evident then you can still claim for compensation as long as the personal injury time limit has not yet been exceeded.
This guide will give you all the information you need to know about how to get in touch with Bradford-on-Avon car accident claims solicitors who can represent you in your case for compensation and what you can expect from the car accident claims process.
The sooner you begin your claim for compensation, the quicker your personal injury lawyer can begin to collect evidence to support your claim so it is worth contacting a solicitor as soon as possible following a car accident in which you have received an injury.
Our Panel of Bradford-on-Avon medical experts could assess you close to the area
One of the strongest pieces of evidence needed to support your claim for road accident compensationis the report from a thorough medical assessment which will outline your injuries in detail. A medical expert can also comment on how, in their medical opinion, your injuries and recovery are likely to progress. Usually, car accident compensation amounts are determined by the severity of any injury sustained and how big of an impact on your daily life those injuries have had. It is most often the case that the more severe the injury, the higher the amount of compensation is likely to be awarded.

Injuries which could be caused by accidents in Bradford-on-Avon
While car accidents can result in a range of injuries depending on the nature and severity of the crash, there are a range of injuries which are commonly suffered following accidents on the road;
Whiplashis caused when the head snaps forward and then immediately backwards at force, often the result of travelling in a vehicle which comes to an abrupt stop, such as in a collision. Whiplashclaims are the most common type of car accident compensation injuries sustained in road traffic collisions and so the personal injury lawyers Legal Expert can connect you with are well versed in obtaining compensation for our clients.
Whiplash injuries can result in minor to severe pain in the neck and upper back, which in severe cases can have a huge impact on daily life as you may have to have time off work and participate in a lengthy recovery programme.
Back injuries are also common in road traffic collisions and can often have the biggest impact on a victim’s daily life as so many of the body’s important nerve endings are housed in the spinal column. Back pain can be severe and result in a chronic injury which may never fully recover. Injuries to the back and spine can be compensated to varying amounts as more serious back pain may entitle you to larger amounts of compensation for your increased level of suffering.
Road traffic accidents are capable of causing a range of serious injuries such as injuries to internal organs, head injuries and amputation of limbs. In severe collisions, death is also a possibility. All road accident compensation claims are individual and the personal injury solicitor who is dealing with your car accident compensation claim will evaluate the extent of your injury and the impact it has had on your ability to lead your normal life and will equate this into a monetary amount that they will seek from the liable party. Often, the more serious the injury, the more compensation you are likely to receive to help cover the cost of treatment and to lessen the impact your injury will have on your life.
