    Experienced Lawyer in Ottery St Mary


    Road traffic accidents in Ottery St Mary can encompass anything from minor bumps and scrapes to serious multiple vehicle collisions. The vast majority of road traffic accidents result from human error, although a range of other hazards including defective road surfaces and unruly animals can cause accidents on the roads.

    Common types of road traffic accident injuries

    Road traffic accidents can cause a range of injuries, including:

    • Whiplash;
    • Broken bones;
    • Lacerations;
    • Spinal injuries;
    • Head injuries; and
    • Psychological injuries.

    If you have sustained injuries in a road traffic accident, you have a right to seek compensation with an experienced lawyer in Ottery St Mary. Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to have been in a vehicle in order to claim compensation; if you were a pedestrian or cyclist when the accident occurred, you will be just as entitled to claim compensation as a driver or passenger.
