If you have been injured in a collision even a minor car accident you may have sustained a personal injury. If the accident was not your fault you can still qualify for a compensation award.
A number of factors can play a part in an accident occurring. Not paying attention to the car in front is one of the biggest causes of rear end collision s on the road. Any sort of distraction inside your car could be the cause of an accident; noisy children talking to a passenger and very commonly using a hand held phone. Even lighting a cigarette can cause your attention to slide for the few seconds it takes for the car in front to brake.
Every vehicle operator on the road has a duty to ensure that they drive carefully in order to keep themselves and other road users safe. You could be entitled to compensation if you have been injured due to the fault of another road user; in order to qualify to make a personal injury compensation claim you must start your case within three years of the accident occurring.
If you are the driver of a vehicle that has collided with the rear of another it is unlikely you will receive compensation as the distance you keep from the vehicle in front should be sufficient enough to allow you time to stop and there are very few reasons why your claim would be accepted. The only time you can make a rear end collision claim successfully if you crashed into the back of another car is if a car crashed into the back of your car and pushed you into the car in front. If you are the passenger however and you have been injured due to events outside your control then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
