Road Traffic Accidents

Were you involved in an accident that was not your fault? Compensation claims for road traffic accidents (RTAs) are commonplace and can affect the driver, passengers and passers by.

We are able to offer a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement for these type of cases and have specialised lawyers that deal with road traffic accidents, ranging from soft tissue injuries to catastrophic life changing injuries to make sure you get the maximum compensation possible.

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a road traffic accident, which was not your fault and occurred within three years, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation for your injuries and losses sustained.

For drivers

We are able to act on behalf of a driver who has had an accident which is not all their fault. We offer a  complete range of services including:

  • Obtaining the third party’s details
  • Liaising with the third party insurers direct to save you the hassle
  • Arranging an inspection of your vehicle who provide a door to door service
  • Supplying you with a hire vehicle until your vehicle is repaired
  • Arranging a medical examination and even organise private medical treatment where liability for your accident has been admitted

For passengers

If you were a passenger and were injured in a road traffic accident it is likely you will be able to make a compensation claim. You can make a claim for passenger compensation if the driver of the car you are in was to blame for the accident or if another driver was to blame. The circumstances in which a passenger is to blame or has contributed to the accident are extremely rare and as a result a passenger will almost always succeed to receive compensation for personal injury.

Many passenger injury claims are for whiplash although passengers sometimes also claim for a wide range of other injuries including head wounds, broken bones, brain damage and spinal cord injury. As well as claiming for your injuries, you can also claim for loss of earnings and physiotherapy treatment fees for example along with other recoverable heads of claims.

If the passenger’s vehicle was at fault the passenger will be receive compensation from the driver’s insurers. You need not worry about making a compensation claim for injuries if a friend, relative or colleague was the driver. They may lose their no claims bonus after they make a claim to their insurance company but your personal injury claim won’t cost them anything.

For pedestrians

If you are unfortunate enough to have been knocked over by a motor vehicle such as a car, van, motorbike or lorry and the accident was not your fault and occurred within three years, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation for your injuries and losses sustained.

If you are crossing on a designated crossing in an appropriate manner then any accident must be the responsibility of the car driver. This is consistently recognised by the courts and as such pedestrians are classed as vulnerable road users. Other road users should always give them the right of way when crossing the road.
