Road Accident Compensation Claims

You can claim compensation if you have been involved in an accident on the road that wasn’t your fault. This applies equally if you were driving the vehicle, a passenger or a pedestrian or cyclist.

We are experts in recovering compensation for peoplecontact us who have been injured in road accidents and we can pursue your claim on a ‘No win – No fee’ basis.

In the UK all motorists are required by law to take out motor insurance and it is the insurers who will pay out compensation to victims of road accidents.

Even if you were involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, or a hit and run, you can still make a claim for compensation to the Motor Insurers Bureau.

Driver compensation claims

If you were the driver of a vehicle that was involved in an accident, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. Even in cases where the accident may have been partially your fault, it may still be possible for you to claim compensation.

Whiplash compensation claims

Whiplash in a highly common injury suffered during road accidents. Whiplash occurs when the head suffers an unexpected jolt caused by an impact with another vehicle. The head is typically thrown backwards at the same time as the body is propelled forwards causing injury to the neck muscles and joints. Other areas of the body can also be affected.

The ongoing results of whiplash may be symptoms such as head, neck and shoulder pain, headaches, pins and needles in the arms and ringing in the ears. These symptoms can in some cases be short lived or, in severe cases, they may be ongoing.

Passenger compensation claims

If you were a passenger in a vehicle and suffered an injury, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. You may have been in a friend or family member’s car, a bus, taxi, work vehicle or even a motorcycle.

All drivers of motor vehicles have a legal duty of care to ensure the safety of passengers.

If you suffered an injury while in a friend or family member’s vehicle it is important to remember that they will not be the ones who pay you the compensation, it will be their motor insurance company. Some people are hesitant to make a claim when they have a close relationship to the driver but that is what they pay their insurance premiums for.
