Injuries from car accidents
Your injuries can keep you from doing everyday activities and returning to work to earn an income - you may even need rehabilitation. It doesn’t matter if you were the driver or the passenger, you may be entitled to make a car accident compensation claim. Whether the incident has resulted in a whiplash injury, neck injury, back injury, broken bones or any other type of injury, we can help. When making a claim, the extent of the injuries you’ve sustained are taken into account alongside lost wages, medical expenses and future loses.

What can I claim for after a car accident?
Not every car accident is the same and more often than not, people can claim for different things depending on their situation. For the most part, it depends on things such as:
- How severe your injuries are
- How much you have lost and will lose in wages
- How much care you need
- How much you have paid out of your own pocket.
Damage taken to your own car or the contents within it can usually be claimed through your own car insurance provider. It is possible that the insurer will agree to pay for some or all of the costs for your ongoing treatment as well, so that you are not out of pocket while waiting for the claim to be finalised.

In most cases a monetary value is placed on the gap between your life path before injury and your life path since the injury.
