    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Accident Lawyer in Pendle

    Pendle, like much of Lancashire where it is situated, is popular with tourists, and anywhere there are many tourists, there are drivers on roads that are unfamiliar with them, so they are more likely to cause a road traffic accident. 

    If you have been unlucky enough to be injured in a road traffic accident that was not your own fault, our accident lawyer in Pendle will be able to help you with your compensation claim. 

    The injuries that result from road traffic accidents 

    Road traffic accidents do not just involve cars. It could be a pedestrian, a bus, an HGV, a motorbike or any other vehicle that takes to our roads. With such a huge range of vehicles, it should be no surprise that there is no end to the injuries that can be sustained in road traffic accidents, including:

    • Fractures
    • Head and brain injuries
    • Loss of limbs
    • Back and spinal injuries
    • Eyesight damage
    • Internal injuries
    • Soft tissue injuries
    • Road rash
    • Loss of digits
    • Burns from hot engines, such as on a motorbike
    • Facial injuries
    • Fatal injuries 

    These are not the only injuries our accident lawyer in Pendle isasked to deal with, but they are among the more common ones, whiplash being the most common of all. 

    Who our accident lawyer in Pendle may have to deal with to settle your claim 

    Insurance companies settle most road traffic accident claims, but there are two main exceptions to this. Government departments, such as the police and emergency services, are exempt from the legal requirement for insurance, and settle claims out of their own funds.

    The other situation is if the person that caused the accident you were injured in, has no insurance. This can happen for many reasons, including the car being stolen or a hit and run situation. Then the claim is dealt with by the Motor Insurers Bureau, an official body that each year insurers pay a levy to, to cover compensation claims where there is a lack of insurance.
