Compensation claim advice for RTA injuries

Road traffic accidents are the most common type of personal injury compensation claim. We understand that these accidents are a very distressing and traumatic experience for all involved.

We offer specialist compensation claim advice to anyone injured in a road traffic accident where someone else was to blame, and provide sympathetic and comprehensive accident claim advice. We specialise in all types of road traffic accident compensation claims including:

Whiplash injury in rear-end collision

Our client had been stationary at a junction, waiting for a break in the traffic before moving off. Without warning, the defendant’s vehicle hit him from behind at considerable force. The defendant claimed that his brakes had failed and admitted liability. Police attended the scene.

Our client was shaken forcibly forwards and backwards, suffering whiplash. He visited his GP following the accident, who confirmed that his injuries were consistent with whiplash and that he had suffered soft tissue injuries to his back and neck. As a result our client suffered considerable aggravation to existing neck and back conditions as well as additional injury to discs and trapping nerves in his back.

Road traffic accidents and the Law

All road traffic accident claims are judged by the standard of reasonable care. If another road user has failed to take reasonable care, which results in you suffering a personal injury, then it may be possible to proceed with a road traffic accident compensation claim.

At the scene of any accident, you should obtain the other driver’s insurance details. Nevertheless, even if you have little or no details about the driver and their insurance, it may still be possible to make a compensation claim. Our specialist lawyers will advise you and help you to make a claim.

Even if you were partially to blame for your own accident, it is still possible to pursue a successful compensation claim. For example, if a driver turns right across your path of travel, you may still be able to recover compensation, even if you were driving too fast and contributed to the accident happening.

If the driver has failed to look out for a pedestrian’s safety when he should have anticipated the pedestrian, then even if the pedestrian was crossing a road without looking properly, the pedestrian may recover a reduced amount of compensation.

If you were injured by a friend or family member in a road traffic accident, their insurers will pay your compensation claim.

Even if the other driver was uninsured or you have no details of the driver responsible for causing your accident, contact us to discuss a possible compensation claim and our specialist advisers will discuss with you how to pursue your claim.

Road traffic accident compensation

Many road traffic accident compensation claims are settled within a year with our specialist lawyers striving to gain maximum compensation in the quickest possible time.

However, if your claim is more complicated or your injuries are more serious, then a compensation claim can take slightly longer. With complicated claims, it is crucial to use expert lawyers who will properly identify the compensation that you can claim. With very serious injuries, the compensation that you recover can substantially affect your future independence, and your quality of life. We have a history of recovering compensation for people who have suffered debilitating injuries and securing vital payments for those involved.

Even though road traffic accidents often happen in similar circumstances, the effect on the individual is unique. This makes every compensation claim different. Our specialist lawyers understand that you, your injuries and your compensation claim are individual. We recognise this and tailor our specialist advice to your individual needs.
