If you have been injured in a road traffic accident and it was caused by another motorist, person or party, then you can claim compensation. If you were also injured as a pedestrian, cyclist or passenger at the time of the accident then you could also make a claim.
Our Road Traffic Accident Solicitors deal with all types of road accident injury claims for car, van, lorry and bus drivers, passengers, people injured on public transport, cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians.
Claiming After an Accident
There are over 200,000 accidents on our roads every year in the UK and these result in injuries of all severities from the most minor to death in the worst case scenario. The latest figures show that 11% of all casualties were seriously injured and this is in addition to the fatalities.
The majority of road traffic accidents result in minor injuries or those that are only short term but they still cause trauma, difficulties in everyday life and can result in loss of earnings and other related issues. Many road traffic collisions are caused by carelessness, simply not paying attention and driver distraction and in these instances the victim simply isn’t to blame and in many cases this can be proven and compensation can be fought for.
We have recently been involved in supporting a family who were involved in a three-vehicle collision involving a taxi.
As often happens in these cases, there was an initial denial of liability by all parties and we had to work hard to prove that our family was not at fault and that the liability lay elsewhere.
Complex Road Traffic Accident claims involving multiple defendants require experienced solicitors to deal with claims for compensation and we were delighted to be able to secure £16,000 in damages for the family
