Road Traffic Accident Injuries
Road traffic accidents, as the title suggests, are accidents involving all vehicles on the road (and pedestrians) including: cars, vans, lorries, motorbikes, mopeds and bicycles. If you have suffered an injury following a road traffic accident that was not your fault then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation against the negligent party’s insurance company. We work on a No Win No Fee* basis.
Victims of road traffic accidents are entitled to claim compensation because road users have a duty of care towards each other’s health and safety and accidents are usually caused by negligence / breach of this duty.

Any party to the accident can make a claim regardless of whether they are a driver, passenger or pedestrian. A victim can suffer any number of injuries following a road traffic accident including minor bumps and bruises to broken bones and in serious cases fatalities. The most common claim following a road traffic accident is whiplash; which is an injury to the neck usually caused by a rear end collision, which results in the neck being thrown backwards and forwards, extending it beyond comfort.
The amount of compensation that can be claimed following a road traffic accident will of course depend on the seriousness of the injury. This may be reduced if the victim is to blame for any of his or her own injuries, for example, by not wearing a seatbelt.
In addition to compensation for the physical injuries, a victim can also claim other losses that are a direct consequence of the accident including damage to vehicles, medical costs, travel expenses and loss of income.
