Your foot is on the accelerator, the motorway is a blur and your hands are grasping the steering wheel – this is freedom.
But even a 4am race up the highway is fraught with danger. When other piston-pumping petrol heads are speeding like extras in Fahrenheit 451, the chances of an accident increase dramatically.
If that doesn’t put you off your speed demon tendencies, then it’s official – you’re part of the problem.
And you’re a problem that refuses to stop. Every year thousand s of people are knocked down by dodgy drivers, thrown through their own windscreen upon impact, strained with whiplash in a colossal collision or concussed by a dysfunctional airbag.
These injuries are really just the tip of the iceberg. You could be mashed or mangled in hundreds of different ways simply by revving your engine too hard without thinking of the consequences.
But when metal is flung across pavements and cars are dented irreparably, everyone is a victim.
They killed James Dean, Jayne Mansfield and Jackson Pollock – but in these more enlightened times, the full force of the law works against ridiculous drivers.
The aim of claims
Nowadays, car accident claims have become the norm for punishing the perpetrators of reckless behaviour, hitting them where it hurts – their wallet.
You’ll be more than familiar with the adverts you’ve seen for car accident claims – those ads that pop up on the telly in mid-afternoon, with their cheap production values, poor acting chops and awkward delivery. They’ll usually start with someone shouting, “Have YOU had an accident in the workplace?”
While the production values of these commercials might be a bit low, these guys are the real deal. Perhaps they’re too busy working on criminal cases to bother about their ad materials.
To get in touch with a claims representative, all you have to do is pick up the phone. From there, you’ll be put in touch with a claims lawyer who’ll assess your case.
Describing a traumatic accident can be an uncomfortable experience, but know that you’re talking to a professional who isn’t listening to be prurient.
If your case has legs, you’ll move onto the next step – gathering evidence.
CCTV systems, speed cameras, police and doctor’s reports, MOT safety checks and much more all count as viable evidence. So be thorough and remember one salient point – even the smallest piece of evidence could be the linchpin for your case.
After this, the case will largely be in the hands of your legal representative. With their expert counsel and prosecution skills, your case will be in the bag.
So if you’ve been injured by a speed demon, you know the solution.
