No matter how safe a road user you are, you can become involved in a road traffic accident. Such is the nature of these incidents that they can lead to serious injuries that have a marked impact on the rest of your life. Should you be harmed in such a way, you will need the very best representation to help you get the outcome you deserve. 

Common accidents

Road traffic claims are the most common personal injury claims made. A recent report compiled by the Department of Transport showed that in 2010, 210,000 injuries occurred to people involved in road traffic accidents. This not only shows the prevalence of these injuries, but highlights the importance of people receiving the compensation they need to get their life back on track.

Road traffic claims can include claims for any accident or injury involving a moving vehicle. Therefore, you may be entitled to make a claim if you are:

  • A pedestrian
  • A cyclist
  • Riding a motorbike
  • A driver or passenger in a car 

It may be that you only suffered minor injuries, such as bruises or minor whiplash, when involved in a car accident. But even in these circumstances, you should at least get checked out by a doctor.

If your injuries are more serious, then claiming compensation can help make up for any financial losses you have incurred. For instance, a serious injury might keep you out of work for a long period or may even mean you are unable to do the job you have previously performed.

This can have many implications, and may mean you are not able to work again or are required to change profession - something that can be particularly difficult and can even impact your psychological wellbeing. Compensation can help to make up for such suffering.
