    Compensation for road traffic accidents in the UK


    Every year, hundreds of people are killed and many more seriously injured in road traffic accidents in the UK, and there are some notorious accident blackspots across the country where accidents happen more frequently.

    Road traffic accidents in the UK can cause serious, life-threatening or life-changing injuries, and if you’ve been injured in a collision on the UK’s roads, you may need time off work to recover. This means losing out on wages which could leave your family struggling financially.

    Help is at hand for those who have been injured – you could make a claim for personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline and receive a settlement which could help to cover household bills, leaving you to focus on making a full recovery from your injuries.

    Pedestrian, driver or passenger?

    It’s not just drivers who are at risk of being injured in road traffic accidents in the UK. You could be injured as a cyclist, motorcyclist, passenger or even as a pedestrian crossing the road.

    Pedestrians struck by cars are more likely to sustain serious, life-changing injuries, and if you have suffered a brain injury or have been left permanently disabled after a dangerous driver knocked you over, you could claim personal injury compensation.

    Driver error accounts for 90% of all accidents on the UK’s roads – things like falling asleep at the wheel, speeding or being distracted whilst eating or using a mobile phone – and if somebody else has been negligent and caused your accident you don’t need to suffer in silence.
