As well as the emotional impact for anyone on the bus, there are physical injuries too such as knee injuries from hitting the seat in front or being thrown from your seat.

As well as physical injuries, post-traumatic stress after an accident of this kind of often life-changing and crippling. Again, this can be included as part of your personal injury claim.

Claims when hit from the rear
A rear-end car accident in Northampton can lead to injuries associated with the neck, shoulders and back. It is possible to have received a spinal injury, whiplash and other neck injuries. Incredibly painful and uncomfortable, rear-end shunts in a car don’t need to happen at speed to cause damage to the occupants of a vehicle. They can cause untold damage to both the car and its passengers and driver.
Claims for accidents at a roundabout
At busy junctions in major cities like Northampton, it is common for rear-end shunts to happen at roundabouts. At very busy roundabouts and traffic islands, it is not uncommon to hear stories of serious road traffic collisions, including head-on collisions. As well as being busy, speed is a factor in many fatal car accidents in Northamptonshire. From back and neck injuries to fatalities, we have worked with relatives to make fatal death claims too. We are aware that there is not an amount of money that would adequately compensate for the loss of your relative but we know that financial hardship often follows an unexpected death, particularly for the dependents and an award for compensation may make this time slightly easier to bear.
Common Ways In Which People Are Injured Can A Car Crash
Low-speed accidents can still result in painful injuries. Thankfully, cars are becoming safer and the protection offered to the driver and occupants vastly improved. However, there are times when what looks like a ‘minor’ road traffic collision, the resulting injuries can be devastating and life-changing.
From an aching neck to dizziness, distorted visions, difficulty sleeping and ‘pins and needles’ in the shoulders and arms, spreading to the tips of your fingers, whiplash is an injury that can take a long time to heal. Painful and very uncomfortable, as well as pain killers and other medication, many claimants spend many hours working with a physiotherapist to not only alleviate pain but to address the injury itself. For some people, whiplash improves but their neck and shoulders may remain painful at times, with limited movement.
Back pain and injury are also common after a road traffic collision. Depending on the nature of the collision, impact and speed, car occupants can be thrown forward and back into their seats or pushed from one side to another. This quick movement can lead to the spine being placed into an unnatural arc. The impact of hitting the seat can also cause damage to the back. As well as difficulty moving, it may be that you are unable to continue with the work you once did and the activities you once enjoyed as a result of a long-term back injury.
Serious injuries are defined as those are life-threatening and life-changing.
Fortunately, many claimants recover well enough from injuries to continue with their normal routine and activities after a period of rehabilitation. However, for other people, the future looks nothing like they thought it would.
