If you have been in a motor vehicle accident, then you will be able to claim for a motor vehicle accident claim. This will allow you to seek the compensation you deserve in the event of an accident. These include reasons like: you have been injured by a motor vehicle, you have been injured while in a motor vehicle, or you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. What’s My Claim Worth aims to shed light on the claims process, and we will do this in this blog by looking at some of the most common motor vehicle injuries and their subsequent claims. 

Bruising & Contusions

In any type of motor vehicle accident, you will likely be bruised via the force of the collision, even if the accident is minor. This bruising can be caused by contact with some part of the vehicle or more likely by the seatbelt designed to keep you safe in your seat. While bruising will be painful, it is unlikely to require any serious medical attention. 

Whiplash Injury

Whiplash is is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip. Whiplash is commonly caused by rear-end car accidents. Whiplash can be increasingly severe in car accidents, and due to the possible damage to the neck and back, will require medical attention. Any expenses caused by the medical attention will be able to be claimed in a motor vehicle accident claim. 

Concussion injuries

Concussion injury is a traumatic brain injury that affects your brain function. A concussion can be serious, with common symptoms being: 

  • headache, 
  • confusion, 
  • lack of coordination, 
  • memory loss, 
  • nausea, 
  • vomiting, 
  • dizziness, 
  • ringing in the ears, 
  • sleepiness 
  • and excessive fatigue.

If you experience any of the symptoms of a concussion following your motor vehicle accident, it is important to seek medical attention. Due to the impairment associated with concussions, medical expenses are likely claimable. 

Psychological trauma

Psychological trauma is the result of extraordinarily stressful events like a motor vehicle accident. Psychological trauma potentially could leave you struggling with upsetting emotions, memories, and anxiety that won’t go away. You can claim a motor vehicle accident for both physical and psychological injuries, like trauma for example. 

Broken bones

Broken bones can be extremely painful and involve long periods of rest, recovery, and rehab. If you have a broken bone injury it is likely you will require medical attention. Because of this, you can claim medical expenses.
