Do you drive a vehicle for work?
Many jobs require the employee to drive a vehicle for work, and these vehicles can vary in size from regular cars to HGVs, coaches, buses, lorries and many others. If you use a vehicle for work, your employer must ensure you have the right training in order to do so, especially for speciality or oversized vehicles. Without the right training, drivers can cause accidents that leave innocent drivers injured in a split second.
Similarly, other drivers on the road may cause accidents that can leave those that drive for work suffering painful injuries. If you have been injured whilst driving a vehicle for work, did you know that you may be entitled to claim financial compensation? If the circumstances surrounding your accident meet the government-mandated criteria, you could seek compensation with help from Accident Advice Helpline.
As a leading, experienced personal injury law firm, we have dealt with Blackwood vehicle accident claims before. These types of accidents can result in serious injuries, and you shouldn’t be left to face the injuries without adequate financial compensation.
Who can make Blackwood vehicle accident claims following a RTA?
If you have had a road traffic accident whilst driving for work, you may be unsure as to whether or not you are eligible to seek compensation.
In order to make a claim, according to UK law, your accident must have taken place within the past three years, and must have done so as a result of someone else’s negligence.
If your employer failed to provide you with a safe vehicle, or didn’t give you the right training, they could be held accountable for your accident. Similarly if another driver’s negligence has lead to your accident, you may be able to hold them accountable by making a claim for compensation.
We help award over £30 million a year in compensation, and fight hard to make sure the Blackwood vehicle accident claims we undertake have a successful outcome. Our high success rate has lead to us being one of the most sought-after law firms in the UK, and is just one of many reasons Dame Esther Rantzen has recommended us for over ten years.

A vehicle accident can have a devastating affect on your confidence, and can potentially impair you from getting behind the wheel again.
This can mean losing out on income, and potentially not being able to return to work in your chosen profession. If someone has caused you this loss of earnings, they should be responsible for supplementing your income with a compensation payout.
