If you have been involved in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation for any road-related injury you sustained as a result of the collision.
According to the latest statistics released by the Department of Transport, over 195,723 individuals were hurt or killed in road traffic accidents in 2012. Despite the high count, only a fraction of these casualties are caused by the driver of the vehicle.
What does your road traffic accident mean for you?
Should you be one of those unfortunate drivers or passengers involved in a car collision then it is essential you research your incident. A quick online compensation calculator takes very little of your time, will roughly evaluate your claim and will inform you of whether you are likely to be able to claim compensation for your road traffic accident.
How much will you be able to claim?
This varies from claimant to claimant, dependent on the details of your road traffic incident and the injuries incurred. It is essential that the case of every person injured in a road traffic accident is assessed on an individual basis.
Due to the diversity of the nature of road traffic accidents, claim amounts provided are an estimate, with any final payout proving to be unique to your claim.
So is it worth it?
No-one should suffer in silence with injuries caused by an accident on the road which was not their doing.
