Every year around 30 million vehicles travel in Britain and around 10,000 accidents are reported every day. Even though these include minor scrapes, bumps etc, it is still a worrying number and suggests people are not taking all necessary precautions they would be obliged to take.
Car accidents vary considerably in there outcome and severity of injuries it may cause to the people involved in the accident. However, car accidents are not always just about the injuries, being involved in a car accident can easily mean getting involved in a financial disaster as well.
Getting back on the road and back to work may take a long time and cost you a lot of money- firstly, it is of course about getting well and recovering from your injuries, if you had suffered from any in the accident, but spending hours waiting in call centre queues, finding an appropriate garage and negotiating with insurers may take ages too and be very costly.
Furthermore, if you have already returned to your work place, you may be forced to take time off from your working hours just to enable yourself to deal with all the problems the accident may have caused upon you. Research carried out by accident and claims management company Accident Exchange shows that on average it can take you three and a half days to deal with all the repercussions!
