    Advice on hiring a lawyer in East Staffordshire


    Unfortunately, road traffic accidents are not an uncommon occurrence. However, if you have been involved in any type of incident on the road and someone else caused it, there is a very high chance that you will be entitled to a compensation award. In this post, we will reveal more about road traffic accident claims while also providing you with some advice on hiring a lawyer in East Staffordshire.

    Road traffic accidents

    There are many different types of road traffic accidents that lead to personal injury claims, including the following:

    • Driver injuries
    • Passenger injuries
    • Car crashes
    • Bicycle accidents
    • Motorbike accidents
    • Uninsured driver claims
    • Untraced driver claims
    • Travel accidents
    • And many more

    When determining whether you have the basis for a claim, the type of accident is not the most important factor; instead, you have to prove the following three things to be true:

    • Someone else caused the accident
    • The incident occurred within the past three years
    • You have seen a doctor for your injuries

    Aside from this, there are ways you can strengthen your case. You should get the contact details of the person that caused the accident as well as anyone that witnessed it. It is also a good idea to take photographs of any damage to your vehicle and/or the road. Keeping proof of expenses is vital, as you can claim for these as special damages, with common examples including the likes of vehicle repair costs, loss of earnings and medical expenses.
