Road Traffic Accident Compensation Claims

Regardless of whether you were a pedestrian, cyclist, driver or passenger in a car or on a motorcycle, if you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for road accident compensation.

A car crash or road traffic accident can lead to you sustaining a range of injuries, from bruising and whiplash, through to serious trauma and catastrophic injuries to your brain and head or spine.

If your injuries are severe or life changing, you may need to pursue road traffic accident (RTA) compensation through a specialist solicitor in order to fund future care costs incurred as a result of your accident.

If you need help dealing with the consequences of your injury, we can also refer to you to external organisations outside the legal process.

Tragically, some road traffic accidents are fatal. If you’ve lost a loved one in an accident, you’ll need understanding advice from a solicitor who specialises in fatal injury claims to ascertain what compensation is recoverable.
