Road Traffic Accident Claims
Been in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault? You may be entitled to compensation, whether you were the driver, passenger, or a pedestrian.
Whatever the situation, the pain and discomfort you feel when you’ve been involved in a road accident usually means that claiming compensation is the last thing on your mind. We understand that and care about your recovery. But it’s okay to seek the compensation you deserve.
Expert claims solicitors
You may not be sure who you can claim from. Road traffic accidents aren’t always caused by drivers. Sometimes untreated ice, unlit parked cars, unmarked hazards or poorly maintained roads are at fault. Our expert claims solicitors can advise you on the best approach.
Once you decide to go ahead with your claim for accident compensation, we will quickly investigate what happened, handle police and witness statements and arrange any independent medical reviews needed to support your claim. With our no win, no fee promise, you don’t have to pay us a single penny unless we win.
Pay outs for road traffic accidents can be considerable. For example:
Motorcycle accident - £10,000
For soft tissue injuries and psychological injuries, car passenger - £6,015
For soft tissue injuries, car accident - £14,300
For soft tissue injuries and credit hire, car passenger - £4,195
In your initial, free consultation, we will ask you a few simple questions and, in most cases, we can tell you within minutes whether or not your claim is likely to be successful and even how much compensation you’re likely to receive.
Can I claim?
You may be able to claim compensation for all kinds of road traffic accidents. Successful claimants have included:
If you think you can’t make a claim because no-one is responsible, think again. Sometimes local conditions are the cause, in which case you may have a claim against your local council, public car park owner or utility company. Don’t make any assumptions – call us for a free appraisal.

In fact, over 30,000 people are injured every year in this way despite the fact that pedestrian must be given right of way by vehicles! If you’ve been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault then you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Claims can include being injured at a crossing, on the pavement or even crossing at an undesignated place and are often on a No Win No Fee basis.
You can claim for a variety of accidents including:
• Speeding drivers
• Drivers not paying proper attention
• Drivers ignoring red lights
• Drunk drivers or drivers under the influence of drugs
• Whilst walking on the pavement
