Road traffic accident lawyers in Aberkenfig
One of the types of personal injury claims we most frequently come across at Accident Advice Helpline arise from road traffic accidents. Many people unfortunately do not drive with the due care and diligence required. The consequences can be devastating and this is reflected in the thousands of accidents that occur on the roads and motorways in the United Kingdom every year. Accident lawyers in Aberkenfig are experts in handling road traffic accident claims and can help you recover the costs for your injuries.
Despite cars having increased safety features compared to a few decades ago, suffering an injury from an accident can be beyond your control. Cars and other vehicles are powerful machines and serious damage can be caused upon collision. Vehicle passengers and pedestrians may also innocently become victims of road traffic accidents. If you are not at fault for the injures you have suffered in a road traffic accident then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your pain and suffering.
Types of road traffic accidents
Though car accidents are the most common type of road traffic accident we come across at Accident Advice Helpline, there are many others including:
- Lorry accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Motorcycle and scooter accidents
- Bus and coach accident
Injuries arising from accidents that occur at a high speed or involve larger vehicles can be more serious and the risk of fatalities increases.
After a road traffic accident
- Seek medical attention for your injuries
- Take the details of the third party (vehicle registration number and contact details)
- Note down any witness details

- Contact Accident Advice Helpline
If the accident was due to a fault on the road, such as a pot hole, then you should also report the accident to your local council or highway authority
