Home » Personal Law » Personal Accident & Injury » Road Traffic Accidents

You may be entitled to claim compensation if you have been in an accident, either as a driver, passenger, pedestrian or biker.

We have helped many clients who have been injured in a road accident through no fault of their own or where the accident is partially their fault.  We also help clients to claim compensation in circumstances where the party responsible for the accident is uninsured or even untraceable, for example in a hit and run scenario.

The types of injuries that our clients suffer vary significantly depending on the severity of the accident but can include; whiplash, strains, sprains, cuts and bruises and psychological injuries. We are also very  experienced in dealing with catastrophic injuries and fatalities.   

Not only can we assist you in claiming for the injuries you have sustained, we can also assist you with other associated losses, such as:

  • Vehicle Repair charges
  • Hire charges for alternative transport
  • Policy excess
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of Use
  • Damage to personal items
  • Medical Fees

In all cases we aim to recover compensation for our clients as efficiently as possible so that they are able to put the accident behind them quickly.

FAQs
How long after my accident do I have to make a claim?
You have three years to pursue a claim for personal injury. If you are bringing a claim because of an accident that occurred at work, on the street, in someone’s premises or in a vehicle, the three years start to run from the date of your accident.
I think I was partly to blame.  Does this mean I cannot claim at all?
Sometimes, you may have been injured through someone else’s fault but you may have been to blame as well. You can still bring a claim for personal injury but you might not receive 100% of your compensation as there may be a deduction to reflect the blame on your part.
The other driver wasn’t insured or cannot be traced, can I still make a claim?
The answer is yes. In these instances, a claim can be pursued through the Motor Insurers Bureau Uninsured Drivers or Untraced Drivers Scheme. We are able to deal with these types of claims on your behalf.
How much compensation am I likely to receive?
Compensation for a personal injury claim is comprised of two elements. The first element is compensation for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries.
