ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS
ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident within the last three years, then you may be eligible to make a claim against whoever was at fault.
It is essential you come straight to our team before speaking to an insurance company about your injury, as they will pressure you into settling outside of court by taking a much lower amount of compensation.
Even if you are not in a vehicle, you are still at risk of being involved in a road traffic accident. Perhaps someone has ignored a zebra crossing, run a red light, or even mounted a pavement and knocked you over.
Whatever the reason, you may well be able to make a claim against the driver at fault – especially if you have suffered significant injury from the incident. All it takes is a momentary lapse in a driver’s concentration for your life to be changed forever – if you have been injured as a pedestrian, get in touch today.
Just because you were not driving does not mean you are not able to make a claim. As a passenger, you are just as likely to be injured as the driver. Not being behind the wheel does not protect you from whiplash, fractures, cuts or even worse.
Furthermore, if you were a passenger in a motor vehicle that caused an accident, you can make a claim against the driver. This claim will have to go through the driver’s insurance and can be a stressful experience – especially if you know the driver. Leave it to the professionals and let us make the whole process easier for you.
If a taxi you have been a passenger in has been involved in an accident, then you may be able to make a claim.
Whether your driver was at fault, or another vehicle caused the accident to happen, you are still eligible for compensation.
Of all the people who make use of our country’s roads, cyclists are some of the most at-risk. Many drivers watch out for cars, vans and lorries, but for whatever reason seem to be utterly blind to people riding bicycles. One case of this negligence and some bad timing can change a cyclist’s life forever.
Unfortunately for cyclists, drivers are not the only thing they have to look out for. If you, or a family member, has been injured while riding a bike then you may well be entitled to compensation. Some of the reasons you may be able to make a claim are;
- If the accident was caused by someone else on the road.
- The cycle lane or road was in bad condition, leading to an accident beyond your control.
- You were a victim of the failure of poor or faulty equipment.
If you are not sure whether or not you will be able to make a claim, do not worry; we are the professionals, that is for us to decide and we will analyse your case and carry out an investigation free of charge.
In the event of a motorcycle accident, motorbikes almost absolutely no protection from the resulting trauma. Even if you are wearing the appropriate protective gear, there is only so much this leather and plastic can actually do.
Permanent spinal injuries, head trauma, and broken bones are incredibly common during motorbike accidents. If you have been injured, or if a family member has been injured or killed, then you may be entitled to significant compensation.
BUS / COACH ACCIDENTS
Buses and coaches are typically a very safe way to travel, but in the event of severe accidents, there can be a terrible amount of injuries – especially because many do not come with any form of seatbelt.
If a bus or coach you have been a passenger on has been involved in an accident where you, or a family member, has suffered an injury, then get in touch today. Oddly, many people think not being in a car makes them ineligible for a claim. An injury is an injury, and if it was not your fault, you deserve compensation.
‘HIT & RUN’ VICTIMS
Many uninsured drivers will flee the scene of an accident in an effort to escape the severe repercussions. This means that the cars at fault in a ‘hit and run’ accident are often stolen. This does not affect your ability to make a claim.
Regardless of whether or not the driver at fault in an accident you were involved in had insurance, you are still eligible for compensation.
If you or a family member has been injured or even killed in a road traffic accident, then it is important you reach out to us first before speaking to an insurance company. It is in their interests to settle out of court quickly in order to save them money on court fees and a higher payout. You deserve better; you deserve justice.
