Road Traffic Accidents

Road traffic accidents take a variety of forms and making a personal injury claim for one is a specialised area of work. Therefore it is really important to get legal advice as soon as you can if you have suffered a personal injury in a road traffic accident.

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault then it is likely that you can claim some compensation for any injury you have sustained. Following an accident, this might be the last thing you’re thinking about, but when you consider the severity of some traffic accidents and the lasting impact they can have, claiming compensation could be a practical step.

Road Traffic Accidents – don’t delay your claim

One of the main purposes of compensation is to cover any loss of earnings you have suffered (or will continue to suffer) as a result of the accident. If you are going to make a personal injury claim for a road traffic accident, you will need to do this within 3 years of the accident or the date you were first diagnosed with an injury associated with the accident.

Road Traffic Accidents – common causes

Amongst the more common personal injury claims that come out of road traffic accidents include:

• Whiplash caused by a collision with another car.

• A hit and run incident in which the other vehicle was at fault.

• A head-on collision leading to injury.

• A collision by another car with the back of your vehicle.

• Accidents caused by buses.
