If you have been involved in a road traffic accident then it’s worth speaking with an experienced solicitor in Olney today to find out if you could make a claim.
Can you make a claim for a road traffic collision?
To find out if you can make a claim for a road traffic collision you can either take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test (which you will find on our website) or you can speak to an experienced solicitor in Olney today.
By answering a few simple questions about what accident you have been involved in, when you had the accident, who is to blame for the accident and how you have been injured we will be able to tell you if you are entitled to make a claim, and how much compensation you might be entitled to if your claim is a success.
What if you are the driver?
If you were the driver of a vehicle and have been injured as the result of a road traffic collision then you may still be able to make a claim for compensation – speak to your injury solicitor to find out more.
Generally speaking you can make a claim for any injuries you have sustained as a result of an accident that was not your fault. Your experienced solicitor in Olney will be able to explain that just because you were the driver of the vehicle that was involved in an accident does not mean that the accident was your fault.
It might even be the case that no other vehicles were involved in the accident. For example, as we all know, the roads can be dangerous places at the best of times, but never more so when there is the potential for ice and/or snow. If the roads have not been suitably gritted to help ensure driver safety, and you have had an accident as a result (for example, slipping on the ice and colliding with either another stationery vehicle, tree or lamp post) then an injury solicitor in Olney may be able to help you make a claim for compensation against the individual(s) responsible for ensuring the road should have been gritted in the first place. This could be your local council or authority, or the Highways Agency.
Your solicitor will be able to establish who is liable and will instigate a claim against them as they will have failed in their duty of care.
