Road traffic accidents and emergency vehicles

Emergency vehicles - compensation claim advice

It is perhaps not widely known that emergency vehicles do not have total protection for any accidents which may arise through using excess speed or less care than the average driver.

The law requires them to show the same duty of care as all drivers, while recognising they may do so while using greater speed than normal.

The injuries caused by accidents involving emergency vehicles can be devastating to the quality of life of those injured. We have personal injury lawyers who have experience of very complicated accident claims for those who need a lifetime of care after such an accident. We can advise how best such compensation should be managed for the benefit of the injured person. Such a claim would be dealt with by our Serious Injury Unit.

Road traffic accident results in life changing injuries for serving professional

A member of the country’s front line emergency services, our client in this claim for road traffic accident compensation asked for our help when his injuries affected both his work and personal life.

Our specialist road accident compensation lawyers were forced to issue court proceedings when the defendant’s insurers refused to negotiate an acceptable sum in compensation. However, through robust negotiation, they were subsequently able to secure a substantial six figure sum in compensation, avoiding the need to take the case to trial.

During the progress of this road accident compensation claim, we were able to negotiate several interim payments for our client. Some helped with the cost of recommended treatment and counselling and some were to assist his financial situation, caused directly by his injuries. These interim payments were vital in helping our client’s progression through a very difficult, traumatic period of his life.
