Road Traffic Accident
Road accidents are the most common cause of injury, costing thousands of lives, 40,000 serious injuries, three million NHS bed days, trauma, illness and absenteeism. Whether you are a driver, passenger, pedestrian, motorcyclist or pedal cyclist, you will have a valid claim providing we can prove that the road traffic accident was someone else’s fault.
It is therefore important to gather and keep as much evidence as possible including names and addresses of other parties involved and any witnesses, insurance details of other drivers, vehicle registrations numbers and photographs showing vehicle damage, position of vehicles after the accident etc. If the other driver is uninsured or unidentified or the accident was a result of an oil spillage we can still assist you in claiming compensation through the Motor Insurers Bureau.
However, if the police did not attend the accident and do not have the insurance details you should report the incident to the police without delay. Some accidents occur due to the condition of the highway, Local Authorities have a duty to maintain the highway and so you may be able to claim compensation if the accident occurred due to a pothole or an obstruction on the highway such as overgrown shrubbery.
Please remember that you are under no obligation to use the solicitors appointed by your insurance company.
