Road Traffic Accident Compensation Claims
Even though road deaths continue to decrease in the UK year on year, there were still 1710 from road traffic accidents in the year ending June 2017 according to statistics from the Department of Transport. There were 176,500 casualties of all severities in the same period with 27,130 killed or seriously injured.
While technological and engineering improvements, as well as better education and training are making inroads in addressing the issue of driver and passenger casualties, accidents are still happening every day, all over the country. Most accidents are caused by driver error, meaning that if you are the innocent victim of another driver’s negligence, and you suffer personal injury as a result, then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Lots of different injuries can occur in road traffic accidents, but the most common type is whiplash. Whiplash can occur even if the speed of the crash is slow. Sometimes neck pain starts immediately after the car accident and other times it can be day or a few days before your neck starts to hurt.
Even if the driver who caused the accident was uninsured, or untraced, then you can still claim car accident compensation through The Motor Insurers Bureau which is an organisation that awards compensation to victims of uninsured or untraced drivers.
What Type of Injury Can you claim for in a road traffic accident claim
If you have ever been the innocent party in a road traffic accident, within the last 3 years and as a consequence have suffered from an injury, you might be eligible for road traffic accident claim compensation for the personal injuries that you have suffered and for any other losses that you have reasonably incurred as a result of the accident, such as private medical treatment e.g. physiotherapy, loss of earnings, the costs of repairing damage to your vehicle, insurance excess or the cost of hiring an alternative vehicle whilst your own is off the road.

Our team of specialist solicitors have a great deal of experience in dealing with these kinds of claims and will deal with your claim on a no-win-no-fee agreement.
