Do you have a road accident claim?


If you have been involved in a road accident then claiming for the injuries you have sustained could be an option, provided the accident was not your fault and negligence can be proved. If a vehicle was the cause of the road accident, a claim for your injury will often go through an insurance company. You should contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible after the accident to help you prepare your claim and deal with the other side. Your solicitor will assist with instructing experts, including a medical expert, to give evidence. The medical expert will give a full report on your injuries and how they are likely to heal in the future - this will be particularly important in finding out what you should be awarded in compensation.

A road accident claim is usually settled before the case gets to court, and a solicitor will be able to negotiate with the defendants to help maximise the settlement. Even if a case cannot be settled, attempts must be made to settle or you risk having your damages reduced by the judge. A common injury in a road accident claim is whiplash. Whiplash occurs when the head is suddenly jerked forwards and backwards when the vehicle the person is in comes to an abrupt halt. This action often gives people pain in their neck and reduced movement, which can affect a person’s ability to work. Compensation awarded in a road accident claim will typically include money for financial loss suffered and money for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity. Naturally the compensation awarded is related to the severity of the injury.
